Ready In:




  • Wash & cut potatoes into thin slices.
  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then add potatoes & salt.
  • Fry, stirring occasionally, perhaps about 5 minutes, until potatoes are a golden color, then remove from the skillet & spread out on a paper-towel covered platter so that much of the oil can be removed.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs well, then to them add the potatoes, mixing well.
  • Using the same skillet as before, cover the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of oil, about 1-2 tablespoons.
  • Once the oil is hot, add potato & egg mixture, shaking the pan gently as you move the mixture, so that none sticks to the bottom.
  • Once omelet seems to be cooked, about 10 minutes, use a large plate to tip the omelet out of the skillet. After adding a little more oil to the skillet, slide the omelet in again, this time putting it in top-side down & cooking it until the under-side is also golden.
  • Serve hot or cold.

  1. amazingly simple and delicious! i suck at cooking and i made it beautifully. bf loved it.
  2. This is a delicious way to put just a few ingredients to work in creating a yummy meal! I omitted the salt (personal preference). Wonderful served with a simple salad. Thanks for sharing!
  3. I cut the potatoes into cubes so my DD can eat by herself and I made for everyone individual omelets. DD had ketchup and mayo on top of it.It's a fast recipe and if you want to kick it up add the onions. Saw a while ago on Rachel Ray a recipe for "Spanish Pizza". The same thing plus the onions. That's when DD fell in love with fried potatoes with onions. I used to make something like this for DD but I poured the egg on the potato rather than mixed it. A big difference.
  4. I made this for last night's dinner and it got the official seal of approval from DH. It was prepared as written but it would be easy to jazz it up with add ins such as onions and pepper. Made for 123 Hit Tag
