- 1/ 2 cup olive oil
- 2 onions, thinly sliced
- 3 potatoes, peeled, quartered and thinly sliced
- 6 large eggs
- Salt, as needed
- Freshly cracked black pepper, as needed
In a skillet, eat the olive oil over medium heat.
Add sliced onions and cook until translucent. Stir occasionally to ensure the onions do not burn.
Add sliced potatoes and cook until tender. About 5-10 minutes.
Add onion, potato and oil mixture to a bowl. Add six eggs, stir to combine and break the eggs. Then cover the bowl with aluminum foil for 5-10 minutes.
Return the egg mixture to a skillet and cook undisturbed until the bottom and edges have set. Using a spatula, tuck the edges of the tortilla under. Now let it cook until it has mostly cooked through and set completely.
Use a plate to cover the skillet, flip and the slide the tortilla back into the skillet to cook. Leave to cook for an additional 5 minutes. Turn off heat and allow to set.
Remove from skillet, slice and serve.
