German Potato Omelet Recipe

"This is an old German dish that was served to threshers and us kids when I was growing up," informs Katherine Stallwood of Kennewick, Washington. "With toast and jam, this flavorful omelet will make four people very happy."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large potatoes, thinly sliced
