Polenta omelette

This is a recipe similar with what my mother used to do when I was little. Like her, I too hate wasting food. When making Pork and polenta for dinner, there is always some polenta left. I keep it in the fridge and in the morning I use the polenta in a nice omelette.

A very simple recipe for breakfast, yet surprisingly tasty and filling!

Polenta omelette – plating

As usual, start plating for the kids first, to cool a bit. Add some greek yogurt (coconut yogurt for low FODMAP) and pickles if you have.

Warn the children – polenta can be hot!
