Mini Yam Omelettes

Funke Koleosho's Mini Yam Omelettes
If you have small pieces of cooked or uncooked yam lurking around in your fridge or larder, my recipe today is exactly what you need to use them to make something delicious! This very simple recipe is a twist on the popular yam and fried eggs dish so popular as a breakfast meal in Nigeria.

Rather than waste your left-over raw or boiled yam, you can cut them up and add to your omelette in combination with other ingredients such as chopped onions, red peppers, prawns etc. Excellent for breakfast and a particular favourite with children, This can also be served as party canapés/finger food... Try it out.

Mini Yam Omelettes

  • Left-over boiled yam pieces or raw yam (white or puna yam are best for this recipe)
  • Onions 
  • Red pepper 
  • Green pepper 
  • Eggs 
  • Salt to taste. 

What to do:
  1. If you yam is not cooked, then peel wash and slice. Add a pinch of salt and water and boil for about 10 minutes depending on its thickness. When cooked drain water and cut yam into chunks/cubes. Set aside. 
  2. If you are using left over cooked yam, chop into chunks/cubes. Set aside. 
  3. Finely dice the red and green peppers and onion. 
  4. Crack the eggs and whisk in a large mixing bowl. 
  5. Add some salt to taste. Then add the diced onion, peppers and yam pieces. 
  6. Carefully mix all together, without further cutting into the yam pieces. 
  7. Fry the egg mixture in a good non-stick pan (to avoid burning), using cooking rings to get perfect round omelette portions. You may also fry the omelette as usual without using the cooking rings. Serve.
