I consider Corned Beef Omelet or Tortang Corned Beef as a power breakfast food; it is a complete meal by itself. The fact that it is more than enough to give me energy and keep me full until lunchtime is a good thing. What makes this dish better is that it tastes really good too and can be best eaten with your favorite sides or with rice and bread.
Preparing your own Corned Beef Omelet is easy. All you need is to make Corned Beef and Potato Casserole first then the rest of the steps should be a breeze. Just to clarify, we are using canned corned beef for this recipe, not Irish corned beef (which tastes great with cabbage).
Once you are done in making the Corned Beef and Potato Casserole, all you have to do is beat the eggs and add the salt, pepper, and onion powder. Let the corned beef cool down before you mix it with the beaten eggs. Everything is smooth sailing from here – I use a measuring cup to scoop the mixture and pour it in the frying pan. Simply wait a few minutes for the bottom side of the omelet to completely cook, and then flip the omelet using a spatula to cook the opposite side.

I like to have my corned beef omelet as it is with tomato ketchup as a condiment. You can also make a corned beef omelet sandwich if you prefer.
