Feta and herb omelette, potato pancake

After Nowruz, I had a lot of herbs left over. And quite a lot of feta. I also had a pile of sloppy mashed potato from a not-very-successful gnocchi making attempt.

They combined to make a really fantastic brunch. The chopped herbs (chives, mint and parsley) and feta went into a light, fluffy French-style folded omelette while the mashed potato was mixed with a good amount of wholemeal flour and an egg, patted into a flat pancake and fried in a little olive oil in a heavy cast iron pan. And some bacon came along for the ride.

Natashya - thanks!

Peter - I've improved on my gnocchi. And feta goes so well with eggs!

Kat - thanks! It makes me feel all thrifty.

Love that you made mashed potatoes from a failed gnocchi. That is funny, but also very creative!

If you ever get around to mastering gnocchi, please post about it. My attempts, so far, have resulted in hard little pebbles... ;)

Feta and herbs go perfectly in an omlette. Nice breakfast.
