    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a 10 inch non-stick skillet over high heat.

      Beat the eggs in a large bowl, and season generously with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Using a slotted spoon, transfer the potato mixture to the bowl of eggs.
    5. 5
      Pour off the excess oil, reserving 3-4 tbsp of it, and scrape away any crusty bits from the bottom of the pan.
    6. 6
      Reheat the pan and add 2 tablespoons of the reserved oil.
    7. 7
      Pour in the potato mixture, smoothing it down to make an even layer.
    8. 8
      Cook for about 5 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until the bottom is set.

    12. 12

      I have never met a potato I didn't like and this is no exception! I made it exactly as written and would not change a thing. I used it as a side dish at dinner but kept going back for 'just one more sliver' right up until bedtime. There is none left and I should be ashamed. I'm not - it was delicious! Made for the Bistro Babes - ZWT 8

      I skipped right over a key word 'non-stick' skillet and used a stainless steel skillet. The result was far from pretty, but the flavours were still there. I really enjoyed the meal although it looked more like scrambled eggs with potatoes :). I added fresh chives on top and served with sliced tomatoes and salsa. Made by a fellow Bistro Babe for ZWT8
