HO HO HO
I hope that Santa is good to everyone this year.
I hope that everyone is having a good "Off Season". I have been having an incredible time. Mitzi and I spent the last couple weeks on the beach in Mexico (all over the place). We are now in Texas with her family for the week. We will spend Christmas with my family in Ohio. Then we are off to Lake Placid to bobsled and to celebrate New Years with Jeg, Samantha, Woody and some friends. We will be back in Ohio for a few days and then we go to Florida to visit Jeg Sr. and Sue. WEEEEEEHOOOOOOO!
I think that my whole family will be home to celebrate Christmas this year except for my niece Nicole. (No pressure Nicole!). I am going to make Bakala Chowder at my parents on Christmas Eve because it one of my mom's favorite dishes. My brother Mat and his family are coming in, so I am sure that they will want to cook something good too. (No pressure Nicole!) I will probably go to midnight mass and then go to my brother's (Andy) house so I can wake up Christmas day with my nephews Luke, Owen, and Max. Beth (Andy's wife) requires me to make fresh cinnamon rolls Christmas morning. We will all eat Christmas dinner at Andy and Beth's house. I am not sure what is in the works yet, but I am sure that everyone will pitch in to create a great meal. (No pressure Nicole!)
I love the meals during the holidays, but I really love leftovers. I like to create new dishes with leftovers. The recipe that I am sharing with you was created using leftover mashed potatoes. It is a new twist to an omelet that I am sure you will love.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Stacked Mashed Potato Omelet (For 2)
2 Each Large Eggs
½ Cup Mashed Potatoes
¾ Ounce Cheddar Cheese (Shredded/ Sharp)
2 Tablespoons Green Onion (Thin Sliced)
To Taste Salt
To Taste White Pepper
1.5 Tablespoon Butter (Soft)
1.5 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Whisk together the eggs and potatoes until a smooth consistency.
Mix in the cheese, green onion, salt and pepper.
Divide the mix into 3 equal parts.
Place 1/3 of the butter and olive oil in a 5 inch non-stick skillet.
Over medium heat, add 1 part of egg mixture and stir until it starts to dry. Flip and lightly brown on both sides; keep warm.
Repeat this process 2 more times.
Stack cooked layers on top of each other with your favorite omelet ingredients between.
Note: I used smoked sausage, steamed broccoli, sauteed hot peppers and mushrooms, and blistered tomatoes. I garnished mine with a piece of fresh rosemary.
