    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Small yellow potato 1
    Large eggs 4
    Water ¼ cup
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Olive oil 2 teaspoons
    Garlic, minced 1 clove
    Swiss cheese, shredded ½ cup
    Scallion, thoroughly rinsed and chopped 1
    Fresh chives, chopped 1 tablespoon
    Directions
    1. Wash and scrub potato. Slice in half and place in a small pot. Fill the pot with water, cover, and then place over high heat. When water starts boiling reduce heat to low. Simmer until potato is soft when pricked with a fork. (Total cooking time will be about 15-20 minutes.) Let cool slightly and then cut into half moon slices.
    2. Whisk together eggs, water, salt, and pepper.
    3. Heat olive oil in a medium to large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and potatoes. Cook for 1-2 minutes.
    4. Add egg mixture to the pan, rotating the pan until evenly distributed. Cook until the egg mixture starts to set. Add the Swiss cheese and scallions, fold the omelet in half, and cook for another minute. Slice omelet in half and then slide onto plates. Top with the fresh chives.
