Sweet Potato Omelette

A sweet potato omelette is a nice alternative to Spanish tortilla omelette and is very easy to make.

Take one sweet potato, peel and chop up into small cubes.

Heat some oil in a large non stick frying pan, then add the sweet potato. Fry for about 5-10 minutes.

Now add in a chopped onion, clove of garlic and chilli, and fry for a further 5 minutes or so, until the potato is soft and the onions are translucent.

Beat 3 large eggs together, and now make sure the pan is very hot. Pour the eggs into the pan, then reduce the heat down very low. Why is this? To seal the eggs, you need the pan hot, but you don't want to burn the bottom of them, so reduce the heat to low to slowly cook through to the middle.
Now the egg will start to cook, gently push a spatula around the edges just to tease the egg away from the pan.
When it is fairly solid, but still a bit runny at the top, remove from the heat.

Grate some cheese on top, and season with plenty of salt and pepper. Now, finish off under a hot grill until the egg is cooked solid and the cheese is all melted and bubbling.

Serve it up straight away and enjoy!

And on the subject of sweet potato, I thought this was an interesting read...

Just make sure you store sweet potatoes, like all potatoes, in the dark to stop them producing these toxins.
