This excellent pizza-like omelette is a speciality from Tanzania. It makes for an excellent quick-fix meal for brunch or a light lunch/dinner. Made with eggs, fries and any additional ingredients like leftover chunks of cooked chicken, chopped cooked sausages, cheese, chillies, onions etc, this is one very versatile recipe!

eggs, lightly beaten
potatoes, peeled and cut into strips
salt and pepper to taste
Optional Ingredients
chunks of leftover cooked chicken
chopped capsicum
chopped herbs
chopped onions
grated cheese
chopped green chillies

Fry the potato strips (chips/fries) and drain on kitchen towels.

Lightly beat the eggs with a bit of salt and pepper.

Heat a small 6" saucepan, add the oil. Sprinkle the fries and any other additions that you plan to us into the pan. Do not overcrowd the pan. Pour the beaten eggs to cover everything. Cook for a couple of minutes on medium heat. Once the bottom of the zege is nicely coloured, gently ease a spatula under it and flip it. Cook some more until both sides are evenly coloured. Serve hot with some ketchup and chopped coriander.

You can have this dish on it's own or with a side of salad or toast.

Enjoy! :)

Oven ones are fine too.

Do the chips have to be fried? Will oven ones do?
