Yams for Breakfast!

I love sweet potatoes and yams! Since becoming more health conscious I have switched out potatoes for them as you get your carbohydrate fill with added flavour and a ton of nutrition. When I was growing up my Dad used to tell my sister and I that there were tribes in South America that survived on sweet potatoes alone! Well I use them quite often, these yam fries are a hit at my house!
This is basically a yam omelet.
~ 1 med yam or sweet potato grated
~ 2 eggs
~ half of one small onion diced
~ half a cup of grated cheddar cheese
~ garlic, salt and pepper to taste

Prepare and mix ingredients in mixing bowl and spoon into large non-stick frying pan. Shape with spatula. Cook on low for 15 mins on each side. Take care when removing and serve! I served with sliced avocado and hot sauce. Hayden used ketchup and enjoyed it too!

  6. Dear Kelly, I love omelette really, but never had before tried a recipe like yours - I believe this is typical American but this shouldn´t be a cause not to cook this in Bavaria, Germany :)
    Happy Easter, dear, for you and your family!
