Reykjaviky's Sweet Potato Spinach Omelet

Reykjaviky's Sweet Potato Bacon Spinach Omelet


3 jumbo eggs
dash poultry seasoning
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
2 strips apple wood smoked bacon
1/2 small sweet potato, thinly sliced/skin on
***butter, olive oil or canola to saute with, use whatever amount you are comfortable with. I only use a couple of tablespoons of canola oil :) ***
1/2 large sweet Vidalia onion, finely chopped
1 cup fresh baby spinach

In a large bowl: Mix 3 jumbo eggs, a dash of poultry seasoning, s&p to taste. Set aside.

Cook 2 strips of thick apple wood smoked bacon, drain, crumble. Add to egg mixture.

1 small sweet potato. (about the length of a 12oz. soda can) Scrub clean and leave skin on! Cut HALF of the sweet potato into very thin slices - like you're making thick potato chips. Then Quarter those slices and quickly fry in canola oil.

*note: They won't get crisp like regular potatoes and burn easily. You have to keep an eye on them. When done drain and set aside.

Finely chop half of a large sweet Vidalia onion, saute (in butter,olive oil or canola oil) with a dash of salt till almost translucent.

Leave onions in skillet and then Add a cup of fresh baby spinach, stir till the spinach is just about half wilted.

THEN add the fried sweet potatoes and egg/bacon mixture to the onion mixture.

Mix all ingredients in the pan and let cook on Med. heat.

Stir a little to let the uncooked part on top drain to the bottom of you would do any omelet.

Keep checking the bottom of the omelet to make sure it is not burning, when you see it look almost totally cooked then gently fold half of the omelet over and again gently press down on the now folded over omelet with your spatula to squish out any runny egg and scooch any runny egg parts back up to the flat side of the omelet so the omelet keeps looking like a half moon..... (and hey, if it falls apart, so what! Don't worry about it. It makes a great scrambled egg dish too!)

Heck....It's just eggs, it'll taste great! I like to eat it as is, of course my husband dumps ketchup all over it. Again, it doesn't's just eggs :) But you'll love'em for a change in pace over regular eggs or regular omeletts!
