I am currently on day 21 of Whole30. ONE MORE WEEK TO GOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Seriously though, it hasn’t been that bad because YOU CAN HAVE POTATOES ON WHOLE30 (now! apparently!).

I’ve been trying to keep things interesting around here food wise. I don’t want to burn myself out on anything, so I’m playing around with preparations. Eggs and potatoes for breakfast in all different ways. This technique of making an omelet out of a hash brown was pretty fun!  It’s a little softer than my hash brown waffle situation. If you don’t have a waffle maker, this Hash Brown Omelet is your best bet!

Inside that crispy/soft omelet, you have two eggs nestled in snuggly with strips of crispy bacon and blistered tomatoes with oregano. Whole30 doesn’t looks so bad, does it now? Still though…. I was dreaming of cinnamon rolls all weekend.

Let’s gather our ingredients.

This is a perfect last minute dinner.

If you’re not on whole30, use vegetable oil in place of the ghee.

Hash Brown Omelet

serves 1-2

recipe adapted from Classic Recipes for Modern People

  • 4 strips bacon
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 3 sprigs fresh oregano
  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil, plus more if needed (I used ghee)
  • 2 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Hot sauce for serving

In a nonstick frying pan, cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy, 3—4 minutes on each side. Transfer bacon to a plate.  Drain bacon fat from pan, leaving a little to cook tomatoes.  Add tomatoes and oregano to the pan and cook until tomatoes start to blister, about 4-5 minutes. Set them aside with bacon.

Using the medium holes on a box grater, grate the potatoes into a bowl. Squeeze to remove excess liquid. Do not rinse. In a nonstick frying pan, heat the vegetable oil (or ghee) over medium heat. Press the grated potatoes tightly into the pan to form a circle; you don’t want any gaps. Cook without disturbing for 3 minutes. Gently swirl the pan. If the entire disk of hash browns moves together without any sticking, you’re in great shape.

Invert a plate over the pan, carefully invert the pan and plate together, lift off the pan, and then slide the omelet back into the pan. Cook the other side until deep golden brown, 2—3 minutes. Remove from the heat and keep warm.

Wipe out the pan used to cook the bacon and set it over medium heat. Carefully crack the eggs into the pan and cook until the whites are just set, about 3 minutes for sunny-side up. Sprinkle with salt and a grind of pepper.

Put the bacon, tomatoes and eggs on one-half of the hash brown omelet and gently fold the other half over to close. Using a spatula, slide the omelet out of the pan onto a plate. Serve right away with hot sauce.

    Seriously Tracy, your shared meals here, are enticing and would encourage many others to venture into the Whole30. Now I find when people are talking about issues with food, I find whole30 pops into my mind. It’s because of you. I love eggs! I love tomatoes (and together) and I love potatoes – this looks so delicious. Something is percolating! Happy Monday!

  • Dona

    Looks delish! We are 6 days and counting to start the whole 3o so your posts are super encouraging. One question, what type of bacon are using? I read labels the other day at Berkeley Bowl and none were compliant.

  • Jamie

    Dear Tracy, maybe you don’t want to write a cook book, but would you consider publishing a coffee table book of your food photos? Or selling prints? Seriously girl, I could wallpaper my kitchen in your food photos and be (fat!) and happy. = )

  • Emily

    I’m on day 4 of Whole30 and feel motivated by your posts! Can’t wait until you share your favorite recipes at the end of yours :) I was going to ask about the bacon too- I found some compliant turkey bacon at whole foods but it’s not quite the same 😉

  • Abbe@This is How I Cook

    I’m not on Whole 30 but if I had to be to eat this, I would!

  • Ashlyn @ The Pedantic Foodie

    AHHHH!!! This looks SO GOOD!! My mouth needs this.

    Hi Tracy, I am really enjoying your Whole 30 posts. I spent The weekend in SF and tried almost every baked good in the Tartine Manufactory (no regrets). I may try a version of this Whole30 idea next week, (though I’m not sure I have the willpower. ). Why are you using ghee- flavor or because olive oil etc. are forbidden on this… just curious.

    • Tracy

      Olive oil is allowed. I had ghee so I used it :) Oh man. Everyone is posting their photos of Tartine Manufactory and I’m like WAHHHHHHHHH.

      • Rose

        Thanks Tracy.. I love your blog and Instagram. Go to the Manufactory when you
        get a chance. The space is so interesting and that brioche cream thingy was!!!!
        I am from Boston, so it’s not so close for me, but I’ll go next time I’m in SF for
        sure!

    THANK YOU! Day 3 for me.

  • Sally

    That actually may be a perfect meal! Close to the food truck burgers we had in Seattle that substituted hash browns for the bread but I haven’t been able to recreate. Live in Australia do can’t hunt them down either unfortunately!!

  • Sara

    Yum times a million.
    Your blog is my fave.

  • Lori

    I’m not on Whole30, but this looks really good!

    Perfect for week-end brunch !
