    1. 1
      Wash & cut potatoes into thin slices.
    2. 2
      In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then add potatoes & salt.
    3. 3
      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.
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, whisk eggs well, then to them add the potatoes, mixing well.
    5. 5
      Using the same skillet as before, cover the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of oil, about 1-2 tablespoons.
    6. 6
      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.
    7. 7
      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.
    8. 8
      Serve hot or cold.

      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!

      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.
