Another one of my leftover gourmet breakfasts: Mashed Yam Omelettes. I loved the yams, and this was a great way to continue enjoying them the next day. I love trying new combinations in omelettes: going to friends’ places and finding mystery ingredients in their kitchens, finding something different in the store, or figuring out what to create with leftovers.
Speaking of friends, we need to talk. Don’t worry this isn’t like when your boyfriend/girlfriend or wife/husband says “we need to talk”. Here’s the situation: I know that a handful of people that we know personally read our content on a regular basis (maybe you’re a friend, or a family member, or maybe you’re a new subscriber), and we could not be happier about that. I know that you keep up with posts, because I often get texts from you about things I’ve written, or you bring it up in conversation when we’re hanging out. And for all of our followers who don’t get to spend time with us in real life but also enjoy what we have to say, we feel privileged that you spend your time with us.
But the thing is, this is a one-way relationship. Holley and I really want to connect with you. She gets to do a bit of that on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. But we would really like to hear more from you in our comments section, as well as social media. Thank you to Mom, Devi, and Holley’s parents for all the comments that you post on the site. We appreciate you taking the time to type a few lines.
We are both very social, and inclusive. We want to build a community, an internet family. We want to learn about you, and have conversations. We want to be your friends! We want to share more with you, but we want you to share with us too. Reciprocity is important in relationships. Tell us all about your successes and failures, share your tears and your laughs. Show us photos of our recipes when you make them, what everyone thought about them, and any alterations that you made. For example, have you heard about Mama Moly and the huge improvements in her health that she’s been going through? Check out her website. She and her husband love our Paleo Butter Chicken, and she talks about it all the time on Instagram (Thank you for the tag!!!). If we all share our stories, then as a community we can celebrate, encourage, and lift each other up when we need. So join our tribe. Speak up. Start the conversation. Join us using our comment section, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; use the hashtag #ThePrimalDesire (I won’t see as much of the last two but Holley will keep me up to date if you are trying to get at me). And we don’t want for you to just connect directly with us, but like I said: build a community. Connect you with other readers as well.
To my friends who comment on things I write to my face or by text, I encourage you to start the conversation today. Tell us about your favorite leftover recipes. Or your favorite omelette and where you had it. Or tell us about the cool Christmas party you were at last night. You can see my sweet Christmas sweater here.
Also, Holley and I have been working on a little gift to thank our subscribers. This should be ready in just a few days, and we hope you enjoy it. And for everyone here, enjoy the Mashed Yam Omelette and an… e-Hug!
Mashed Yam Omelette
- Yield: 1 omelette 1x
- 2 strips bacon (chopped)
- 2–3 eggs
- 3 Tbsp mashed yam leftovers (warmed – and it’s all good if your guests picked out the candied pecans last night, because we don’t need them in this recipe)
- 1/4 avocado (cubed, covered with lemon juice, and salted)
- 1/4 cup tomatoes (diced)
- 1/2 tsp salt (approx)
- Cook bacon pieces in a non-stick frying pan until crisp, then set bacon aside (leave about 1 Tbsp bacon grease in pan).
- Beat eggs in a mixing bowl and add salt.
- Pour eggs into warm pan (over medium-high heat).
- As eggs begin to solidify, use a spatula to lift the cooked edges, and tilt the pan to allow the still-liquid eggs to flow underneath.
- When solid enough, flip omelette to cook the top for about a minute (time will vary).
- Transfer to plate, spread mashed yams over half of omelette.
- Cover mashed yams with avocado and tomato chunks.
- Fold other side over-top of filling and enjoy!
And the hash in the photo is shredded sweet potato, egg, salt, onion slivers, and onion powder. Great with Holley’s homemade paleo ketchup.

Great way to use leftovers. We don’t have many leftovers anymore, but when you kids were home, there were more in the house (well, until you started eating more!) I hate wasting food, so this is a really good way to make another meal out of those good things found in small packages in our frig.
I seem to be the exception on this one. I shoot for leftovers! It’s like having a bunch of prep work done for the next meal.
Dad’s go-to leftover usage for avoiding wasteage is soup right? And use to be fried rice too? Has he started using rice cauliflower yet?

This is gorgeous. Yams and bacon? It’s like you looked into my mind and found the most delicious things to combine. Ahhh.
I’m glad we’re on the same wavelength. I’ll have to look onto your mind more often.
I also like how you combine words the way I combine delicious things.
