Yuck. This is probably the worst omelet I have ever made. Whisking the egg whites until stiff? My hand is still sore, and it didn't happen. I suggest all of you use a mixer for that. Takes 3-5 minutes to cook? I don't know what super oven and pan y'all use but that wasn't the case for me. It gets 2 stars because I like the basic idea of this. but i will be changing almost everything else about this recipe. Very bland!

This makes such a delicious omelette! It's also good if you top it at the last minute with a medium or sharp cheddar OR Swiss cheese, and then a dollop of sour cream and serve! YUMMY!

Lovely base recipe, I agree that this opens itself up to so many possibilities. I always like recipe where you beat the egg whites as it gives such a nice light texture and this is no exception. I don't know what a knish is but it was very similar to a souffle. I used instant potatoes as that's what I had and that seemed to work fine. Also added bacon and shredded mozzarella cheese and after thinking about it wish I'd also added green onion. Served with toasted french bread and hot coffee. I was looking for a differant omelet and this fit the bill. I followed all the cooking instructions exactly and it turned out great. Thanks Toni for a lovely breakfast.

Yummy breakfast today! I used a bit more potato than listed, but it worked just fine. I also didn't bother peeling them before cooking. I made these exactly as listed and it cooked very quickly. I ended up using a dollop of sour cream on it too. Made for my adopted chef for Fall 2009 PAC. Thanks justcallmetoni! :)

YUM! I was surprised how good this was. I cut the recipe in half, since it was just me. I also added one strip of cooked, crumbled bacon, a little chopped green bell pepper, and about a tablespoon of cheddar cheese. I didn't have any chives, so left those out. I didn't finish it off in the oven, it was so thick, it flipped over nicely, so I just browned the other side. I was making hollandaise sauce for somthing completely separate, but ended up topping it with a little of that and it was a nice addition. Salsa would be good too. What a great base recipe! The possibilites are endless with this one. The texture is great, very filling but also light. Thanks for this one!!

Fabulicious!!! I will never make omelets any other way again. I used chives, green onions, cheese, and ham along with the potato and eggs. I used 5 eggs because they were smaller and it made a large 14 inch omelet. We ate it all for supper and I wish there were some leftovers it would be great in the AM for a quick breakfast on my way out the door. Will have to double recipe next time. Thank you justcallmetoni for the great recipe. Made for ZWT4 for team CHIC CHEFS.

Awesome. This was just so easy & yet still good. I have to admit I was kind of reluctant to try it since I am used to eating desi style spicy omelet. But this was just perfect. The recipe doesn't specify the amount of salt & pepper so for people who might get confused like me in the start, I added 1/4 heaped teaspoon salt & 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Thanks Tony.

I couldn't believe how fluffy this turned out and the leftovers reheated nicely in the micro. I mashed a fresh potato with some flavored veggie cream cheese spread and it gave a nice "herb" flavor. Thanks Toni, for posting. Roxygirl

The technique made a REALLY light and fluffy omelet. I used roasted garlic mashed potatoes and topped the omelet with goat cheese and some leftover carmelized onions. It was wonderful! The technique (beating the egg whites) will be used anytime I make an omelet.

this was fun and puffy and a good use for left over potatoes. i had some chipolte potatoes from dinner and used those. nice heat. i think next time i will put morevegetables in them though. they were almost too airy and we wanted more chunks of veggies. i guess its more of a personal taste. but it was fun and easy. thanks!
