We had a few left-over boiled potatoes and decided to have a variation of one of our favourite omelettes this morning, using potato, onion and cheddar cheese. We sliced the potato and then sauteed it in butter, along with the chopped onion. (When I say “we”, in this case I mean “he” – I just watched.) Then the egg was added to make the omelette. The cheese was put in the center. In another pan, we fried some ham from our favourite Polish butcher who smokes all of the hams he sells (he makes brilliant ham). All of this was served with lots of buttered toast (yes, I did make the bread…). And good strong coffee with plenty of cream. What a fabulous breakfast.
An aside: When oh when are people going to forget about this low-carb craze? We bought some Hellmann’s mayonnaise the other day and saw on the label “0% carbohydrates”. Since when did mayonnaise ever have any carbohydrates, anyway?? Sheesh.
