  1. To make the crispy potatoes: Preheat oven to 475. Toss cubed potatoes with olive oil, salt, paprika and ground pepper. Place on rimmed cookie sheet (we use parchment paper, too) and bake until crisped, about 20 minutes. Shuffle the potatoes around at about 10 minutes to crisp on all sides. Set potatoes aside. We make them at night to save time in the morning.
Spicy Aioli
  1. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a small pan on medium heat. Add garlic, paprika and salt. Heat until fragrant. Add tomato paste, stir to combine. Whisk in water, reduce to 1/4 cup. (8-10 minutes) Remove from heat, let cool completely. Add mayo when cool. Transfer to squeeze bottle to drizzle on omelets. (Can also spoon on or put in plastic bag with corner cut off and use like an icing bag.)
  1. In separate frying pan, cook prosciutto until crisp, turning once (2 minutes). You can also opt for bacon or ham in this step. Whisk eggs and heavy cream in bowl. Grease frying pan/omelet pan with butter. (We use the electric griddle which is why our omelets are not half-moon shaped.) Pour 1/4 egg mixture into omelet pan (or 1/2 onto the griddle). Heat eggs over low-medium heat until slightly set then add Mexican cheese blend & prosciutto. Fold over and cook until done, about 5 minutes. Flip to brown other side. Plate.
  2. Hot hold omelets in oven until all are done. (170 degrees) Squeeze spicy aioli on top, add chives and asiago cheese. Serve with toast or corn bread.
Recipe Notes

This one takes a bit more time as you need to make the sauce and the potatoes in advance. But, it is a yummy addition to the breakfast menu!
