Potato Crusted Zucchini Omelet

Or clean your fridge omelet .....  But you know... do it in style :)
You can use the ingredients you like, it’s a playful way to present the omelet, my son just loves it.
It is also a great portable lunch. My son is starting his first school year in JK,  I'm super thrilled for him although he seems to be meehh... Anyway,  I’m in the hunt for portable lunches that kids love.
This one.. Has been added to our weekly favorites :) Do you think you can propose a portable lunch for school? If so, please add your link. Thank you so much!

Ingredients (4 people)

1 large potato cut into thin slices
olive oil
salt pepper
6 eggs
1 tablespoon of yogurt or 2 tablespoons milk
1 zucchini 
100 g Feta Cheese
2 tbsp chopped dill
1 chopped sausage (I had it in the fridge, you can replace it with whatever you like, or even skip it)
Salt - Pepper 

How to Make

Preheat oven to 390 degrees.
Grate the zucchini and add it inside a colander. Add salt and set it aside. 
Slice the potatoes, place them in water for 10 minutes, drain, and wipe them dry using a paper towel. Lay them in a baking pan covered with parchment paper. Add salt and pepper, sprinkle with a little olive oil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until slightly softened. Remove from oven and lower the temperature to 350 degrees.
Using a bowl, beat the eggs, add the yogurt, feta, peppers, zucchini, the dill and sausage.  Be careful with the salt, feta cheese and sausage can be really salty.

Grease well a baking pan and start laying the potatoes starting from the corner as shown in the second photo. Then continue to the bottom of the pan.
Add the omelet mixture and bake for 40 minutes. Now if you notice that the potatoes are getting too dark while baking you can cover loosely the pan with foil.
Let the omelet cool for 5-7 minutes before you cut and serve.

  12. Hi Eri, I made this potato crusted omelet this past weekend and we loved it. I made a couple of changes, since I didn't have everything you had in your omelet. Also I made them into individual servings. I will be posting about them tomorrow, so I hope you check it out. Dawn
