This is a good use for leftover boiled African yams. Barbara playfully calls it “African French Toast”—savory, not sweet, and using African yams, not bread. Fresh African yams are available in West African, Caribbean, or Latin American markets, and are sometimes sold in major grocery stores as “name” (American yams are not a good substitute).
This dish looks lovely when half a serving plate or platter holds the yam slices, the other half the omelet, and the platter is garnished with sliced tomato, bell pepper, etc. Or it can be served with ketchup or any pepper sauce or Shito drizzled over it or served on the side.
