Sausage Sweet Potato Burrito Omelet

so let me start this post off with saying: sorry it has been so long! i think my last post was somewhere around 3 months ago? Please understand: after staring at a computer screen all day, when i get home all i want to do is NOT stare at a computer screen — i want to stare at a television screen, and zone.

however, the time has come for me to post, it has been long overdue. plus, i have been pressured by the people i work with at Hunter PR (what up Hunterz?). they’re a fun bunch — and always get a good laugh out of my blog (i’m sure some of them will bust my chops tomorrow, and i think the fact that i’m actually writing this will only further it).

update: i got a new job! it’s awesome — great clients (i’m on the Boys Toys team working for Hasbro, meaning, GI Joe, Transformers, Star Wars and Marvel action figures — really couldn’t think of a better gig for me), great vibes, great co-workers, in the city, plus a kickball team! Playback Clothing was fun, but it was time to move on.

side story: today one of my co-workers made eggs, brought them into work, REHEATED them and then put them on bread (which i do not believe was toasted) to make a sandwich. i asked her what was in it, she said NOTHING (no cheese, no veggies, no nothing — straight up eggs). i didn’t respond, smothered all of my desires to go nuts about her eggs, and i just thought: “time to update the blog.” so here i am. i still have two other omelets in the proverbial ‘omelet bank’, but those will have to wait for another day.

so lets discuss this omelet. it was great, excellent, delicious — however, it was really heavy. the burrito, sweet potatoes and turkey sausage was a great flavor combo, however,Ā  the consistancy of the “orange mush” was really viscous and just sat in my stomach like a ton of…potato and burrito mush. tip for next time: don’t get so intense with the mashing, leave in chunks. i don’t really know if that will help the situation out so much, but i think it was too pureed. provolone: good choice. the creaminess of the provolone mixed with the salty sausage and sweet potatoes really accentuated the omelet as a whole quite nicely.Ā  something big: i usually eat all of my omelets with hot sauce, but not this one. i thought the flavors mixed too well together to taint them with hot sauce. also, although hot sauce usually goes with everything, it does not go well with sweet potatoes. maybe next time i’ll think of a good condiment to go with this? maybe a type of mustard? who knows…suggestions?

mistake: i didn’t flip this omelet. usually i put the ingredients in, add the eggs, and then flip it to make sure both sides get toasty. this time i thought the heat would take care of things, but i don’t think it did for some reason. i guess i got lazy. but it was definitely cooked all the way, just not as thorough as i think i would have like to have been. this also could have added to the ‘heaviness’ of the omelet as a whole. by flipping it, it might have eliminated some of the “water weight” of the omelet, reducing the overall weight.

another minor change: probably should have added a little more salt and pepper, oh well.

overall, i’m happy with this omelet. i thought it was creative, but more importantly, tasty.

    Hi Danny,

    I recently came across a condiment that I love, and its Kosher – Baconnaise. Mayonnaise that tastes like bacon. You should definitely put it on or in your omeletes.

    Ok, so a few things:

    A. I think it’s hysterical that you have a blog about omelets! I am definitely intrigued, and may even attempt to make one of these crazy creations (although I can’t even make toast without burning it). Then again… when are you cooking for me?!?

    B. Ok, please tell me that the eggs-in-a-bag culprit is Annie… is it? She always has some crazy breakfast creations to heat up in the mornings!
