5 Minute Portuguese Potato Chip Omelet Video


Hi Everyone, here’s my recipe for “5 Minute Potato Chip Omelet” which I prepared live on TV –  WWLP Mass Appeal preparing “5 Minute Portuguese Potato Chip Omelet”


The segment was taped live on February 23,2012. You can see it at the left of this post. I’ve received great comments about the segment.

Everyone was amazed by the simplicity of the recipe, and said they’re going to try the very interesting technique using potato chips. But the most comments were about my “Flip” technique of flipping the omelet back into the pan and they were going to use it the next time they made omelets!

I never expected to get such a reaction from such as simple technique taught to me my mother, so many years ago when I was a young girl! Keep cooking everyone!



6 whole eggs

1 6-8 oz bag of chips (any you prefer or use 1 – 2 cups of any cooked fries)

2 slices of Presunto, ham, chourica, cooked chicken, cooked shrimp turkey (meats are optional)

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

2 tsp chopped fresh parsley

olive oil


Cheese (optional)


In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy and add the chips or potatoes. Let them sit for about 5-10 minutes to soften.


Meanwhile, on high heat brown the onions and presunto in 3 tablespoons of olive oil until crispy.

Mix in the egg and potato mixture and 1 tsp parsley. Cook on medium for 3 -5 minutes (shake pan so it doesn’t stick)

Flip the omelet onto a large serving dish and place back in the skillet uncooked side down for another 2 minutes

At this point you can add cheese, or just top with the remaining tsp fresh parsley. Enjoy!
