We wanted an intensely rich, velvety, melt-in-your-mouth egg-and-potato omelet recipe that didn’t require using a quart of oil. We were able to cut the oil to a mere 6 tablespoons by substituting less starchy Yukon Gold potatoes for russets, which tended to fall apart when flipped in the pan. To flip the omelet easily, we slid it out of the pan and onto a plate, placed another plate on top of the omelet before inverting it, and then slid the flipped omelet back into the pan.
