I Hop Spinach Omelette (Replica)

Though I Hop is famous for its pancakes but an equally killer version is their omelette too,Isn't it??.The typical folding makes it so appealing that we are always tempted to have it.We too love the I Hop omelettes a lot and that's how I ended up recreating ,modifying the same one at home.This recipe has come out very well and we all enjoyed it a lot,Hope you all will give this a try and enjoy a healthy filling breakfast with toasted bread slices :D



Ingredients
eggs 3 beaten
onion fine chopped 2tbsp
spinach leaves chopped 2tbsp
butter 1 tbsp
hash brown potatoes 3tbsp(refer notes)
pepper powder 3/4 tsp (refer notes)
salt to taste
cheddar cheese 1/4 cup
to garnish
sour cream


Method
-Boil a potato with little salt in a pressure cooker or microwave.Mash and keep aside.If you prefer hash brown potatoes,you can do it that way by stir frying the shredded potato.
-Heat a kadai/wok on medium heat and add half a tbsp of butter in it.Saute the chopped onions and spinach till cooked and translucent.Put off flame and cool it.
-In the mean time beat eggs until fluffy and stir in salt and pepper powder.
-Add in the cooked onion and spinach.
-Melt the other half of butter in a nonstick pan of atleast 12 " wide and swirl the beaten egg mixture into the pan and evenly distribute the onions and spinach using a spatula.
-Cook for 4-6 minutes on medium heat or until the top of the omelette is firm.
-Fold in the top and bottom of the omelette one inch.
-Sprinkle 2tbsp of cheese on the left side of the omelette leaving the 1/3part.(refer notes)
-Arrange the potatoes  on top of the cheese and start folding over the filled ingredients,till you reach the end.
-Transfer it to an oven safe plate/tray and sprinkle the cheese on top.
-Pre heat oven to 300 degrees F and place the plate in the oven for 2-3minutes until the cheese melts.
-Remove and serve with the sour cream garnish if desired.



Servings ~ 1 Omelette


NOTES
* You can add a tsp of pancake mix to the batter to make it more fluffy .I haven't done that.
* The hash brown potatoes are pan fried potatoes after being shredded or julienned.I have just boiled and mashed one medium sized potato with little salt for a healthier option,you can do as desired.
* If you desire a non veg version ,you can add ham or chicken instead of the steps with spinach.
*I have not added cheese in the filling just sprinkled on top.You can add it in the filling.
*Adding pepper powder is not in the I hop recipe bujt I like the flavor of pepper powder in omelette and so have added.You can omit if you wish.
*I have not added sour cream,it tastes great otherwise too:-)
