1 omelette


  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

  • 1 medium Spanish sweet onion, chopped

  • 2 cups fresh spinach

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 ounce shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1 cup leftover mashed potatoes

  • 1 tablespoon salsa

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion in the hot oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Add spinach and beaten eggs and mix together to coat. Add cheese and cover the pan with a lid.

  2. Lower heat and steam until eggs are set, about 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, microwave leftover mashed potatoes until heated through, about 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Lay out cooked omelette over potatoes and top with salsa. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook's Note:

You can use any cheese you prefer.
