This recipe a take on a Spanish tortilla – a cooked dish with eggs, potatoes, and onion. In fact, the title of this recipe used to be Sweet & Savory Blueberry Tortilla, but it was too confusing because many people were picturing a wrap.

So, I renamed it to closer reflect what it is: a delicious take on an omelet.

Instead of the traditional ingredients in a Spanish tortilla, I used the technique and put my own flavor spin on it. I added blueberries, coconut aminos, and a few spices.

The result was a little bit sweet, and a little bit savory. Plus, the warming, breakfast-y flavor of cinnamon brings it all together.

    Chickpea Muffin Mix

      • ¾ cup water
      • 2 Tbsp olive oil
      • ¼ tsp baking powder
      • ½ tsp garlic powder

      For the Chickpea Muffin:
      1. Preheat the oven to 450F (230C), prepare to grease a muffin tin.

      7. Bake. After 15 minutes, lower the temperature to 430F and bake for another 15 minutes.

      KidneyGrub Original Smoky Ham Omelette

      • Author: Jessianna Saville
      • Prep Time: 10 mins
      • Cook Time: 10 mins
      • Total Time: 20 mins
      • Yield: 2 1 x


      An omelette so fantastically savory you won’t miss the salt, cheese, or bacon. This is a true favorite.


      • 4 eggs
      • 1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
      • 1/3 cup onion, chopped
      • 1/4 cup low sodium ham, chopped (preferrably a honey ham)
      • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
      • 1 – 2 tablespoons of olive oil
      • Garlic powder
      • Onion powder
      • Chives (opt)


      1. Heat oil and skillet and saute onion.
      2. When onions are soft and translucent add in red pepper and saute until slightly roasted on edges. Add paprika and ham and cook until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.
      3. To prepare the omelette,in a bowl, using a fork whisk together the egg. Heat your skillet over medium-low heat. Once the pan is hot add 1 tablespoon of oil and swirl the pan to coat.
      4. Pour in the egg mixture and let it set for about 10 to 20 seconds. Use a heat-safe spatula to gently move the set eggs toward the middle of the pan, then tilt the pan so runny eggs take their place. Repeat this process until there is hardly any runny eggs to scoot around.
      5. Use your spatula to gently release the underside of the omelet from the pan. Tilt the pan a little forward and back to make sure it’s not stuck anywhere.
      6. Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder.
      7. Place smoky ham filling in one half of omelette and fold over.
      8. Let it set for a few seconds, then scoot it off the pan onto a plate.
      9. Garnish with chives and enjoyl


      Most of the renal diet recipes on our site our written considering someone with Stage 5 kidney disease on dialysis. Here are some modifications for other stages of kidney disease to consider:

      * If you are trying to be extra careful with phosphorus, you can switch out the 4 whole eggs for 6 egg whites which will cut the phosphorus down in this recipe by about 300 mg (yeah that’s a lot!).
      * We use Private Selection Lower Sodium Honey Ham from Kroger’s deli. It has 370 mg/1oz serving. Most delis will have a lower sodium ham choice which can save you as much a 200 mg or more sodium/serving. We especially liked the honey ham because the very slight amount of sweetness paired magnificently with the smoked paprika. If you can’t find a honey ham add 1/2 tsp honey with the ham when cooking it in the skillet.

      For stage 3 and 4 cutting back on protein is often a priority, but potassium often is not an issue. For this recipe, to cut back on protein, I would add extra mushrooms, cut the ham in half, add a hefty dose of tomatoes (if you like them) or any other vegetable. This will make your omelette much bigger and provide 3 instead of 2 servings.

      If you are trying to be extra careful with phos, you can switch out the 4 whole eggs for 6 egg whites which will cut the phos down in this recipe by about 150 mg/serving (yeah that’s a lot!).”

      KidneyGrub Verdict:

      Stop! Don’t read further! Immediately go make this dish. You’re still reading. Stop and go taste this, make this. Something about the combination of honey ham and the slightly toasted smoked paprika in this recipe is show-stopping. This dish works because we use the perfect amount of ham to provide a slightly salty-sweet undertone to every bite. The eggs, onions and red pepper provide a beautiful canvas for all these flavors. This recipe is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Pair this delightful dish with a small bowl of tangy fresh fruit such as pineapple or mandarin oranges for a satisfying meal. It is very filling, so while a 2 egg omelette may seem small, it is very filling.

      What is an oyster omelette?

      The oyster omelette is a signature savoury dish of China’s Hokkien people. It’s thought to have originated in the region of Fujian, on China’s south-east coast. Despite these origins, many people believe it to be a traditional Thai dish, due to it being one of Thailand’s most prominent street foods (mussel omelettes, however, are an authentic Thai creation adapted from the Hokkien oyster omelette).

      The oyster omelette’s prevalence in Thai street food culture came about because of the Hokkien diaspora in Thailand. For similar reasons, the oyster omelette is also a popular dish in the night markets of Taiwan, as well as being a popular street food in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines, where it is sometimes known as oyster cake.

      Oyster omelette is prepared by adding small oysters to a mixture of sweet potato starch and egg batter. What it’s then served with depends on the region, but you can often expect some sort of hot chilli sauce or sweet and spicy tomato sauce, as well as a squeeze of lime.
