Ingredients

  • 7 eggs
  • 5 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Thinly slice Potatoes
  2. I used a vegetable turner so potato was thin and evenly cooked If you use a mandolin or cut them by hand, they need to be super thin and all the same thickness or they will take a lot longer to cook and will cook unevenly

  3. Thinly slice onions
  4. Lightly beat eggs in a mixing bowl with a fork and set aside
  5. Heat olive oil in non stick pan on med-high
  6. Saute onions & minced garlic until translucent but not brown
  7. Remove from pan with slotted spoon or tongs and set aside
  8. Make sure there is enough oil in pan to cover one layer of potatoes, about an inch, you want just enough to cover the potatoes, they absorb the olive oil flavor, you will be cooking them in batches
  9. Lay a layer of potatoes in the pan so they do not overlap
  10. Cook until soft, turning a few times during cooking
  11. Remove from pan and cook remaining potatoes in batches until all the potatoes are cooked
  12. Add onions & garlic, potatoes & eggs to a large mixing bowl and combine until well combined
  13. This next step isn’t traditional, but it does needs some seasoning, so go ahead and season now with your favorite seasoning
  14. You could use Salt & Pepper, Montreal Seasoning, Lemon Pepper Seasoning, or any other seasoning you like
  15. Drain any excess oil from Pan, you just want enough so food doesn’t stick to the bottom
  16. Heat medium nonstick pan to med-high
  17. cook Potato, onion, egg mixture in pan until brown on the bottom and mixture is cooked through, you don’t want it too runny
  18. Here comes the tricky part

  19. Place a larger non stick pan over the top of the pan you are cooking with, as if it is a lid, then carefully invert and flip it over so the top is now on the bottom
  20. Slide the omelette back into the first pan and cook until both sides are brown
  21. Place your Serving plate over the pan and Flip it one more time
  22. Cut and Serve

You could add bell peppers, bacon, cheese, mushrooms or meat to the mixture

*This was one my son made with Hand Sliced Potatoes, they were thick & uneven – It was taking far too long to cook with the above method on the stove, so we transferred the mixture to a baking dish, added cheese and parsley on top and baked in the oven for 45 min at 375F, it made a nice breakfast Potato Cake

Store any unused portions in an airtight container in the fridge and pop in the microwave for 1-2 min to reheat

6 Foods that cause Inflammation

inflammation.png

1. Fried Food

It’s not so much the food itself, well, kind of, but it’s more the temperature at which most foods are fried

If battered food is fried between 350-375F, the food forms Glycation which causes the inflammation

Your body perceives these foods as a threat and begins the inflammation response in your body

 

 

2. Trans Fats

Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, corn, soy and canola oil are the main culprits, avoid them at all costs

Trans fats damage the cells that line our blood vessels which lead to a chain reaction, causing inflammation

Stricter Health & Medical Guidelines have been tougher on these in recent years and have been a big part of changes in the food industry and especially food labelling

 

 

3. White Starches / Carbs

White Bread, Pasta, Rice all contain starchy carbs that your body immediately converts to sugar which increases inflammation in your body

The easy solution is to switch to whole wheat varieties of Bread and Pasta and eat Brown Rice, it makes a big difference in how your body processes food and they are rich in dietary fiber that is great for your body, regularity and even weight loss.  You can hardly taste the difference

 

 

4. Tropical Fruits

Tropical fruits are extremely high in fructose (sugar) and Sugar is one of the main things that causes your body to trigger inflammation responses.  Bananas, oranges, mangoes, papayas, and pineapples should be limited to one serving per week

 

 

5. Grain Fed Meat

Animals fed grains are pumped full of antibiotics and hormonal drugs and are not a healthy food choice.  Meat from these animals especially red meat, beef etc causes an unnatural reaction in your body and the way your body fights this is to produce a defense mechanism that triggers inflammation.  Simply put, your body doesn’t know how to break these foreign food bodies down

 

 

6. Sugar

Sugar is not in it’s natural state by the time it reaches your shopping cart.  It has been refined, and any goodness it once had in it’s raw state, has been stripped out of it

It is a huge factor when it comes to inflammation

If you just eliminate this one thing from your diet you will reduce inflammation in your whole body in a few short weeks
