Step 1

Peel potatoes, cut in half and then in quarters. Cut into ? inch (3mm) slices.

Step 2

Cut onion into thin slices.

Step 3

In a 9.5 inch (24cm) non-stick frying pan heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and onion, add salt to taste and reduce heat to medium. Cook for about 10-12 minutes until potatoes are fork tender but not brown.

Step 4

Remove from pan with a slotted spoon and place into a sieve over a bowl to let the oil drain. Let cool slightly. The olive oil  can be strained and reused.

Step 5

Meanwhile crack eggs into a large bowl. Season with salt and whisk to combine. Add cooled potatoes and onion and stir to combine.

Step 6

Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil into the non-stick pan and add potato and egg mixture. Stir the mixture to get some cooked egg on top. Press slightly and let the tortilla cook for 5-6 minutes. Tuck the edges in and place a larger plate on top of the pan. Flip the tortilla onto the plate and slide the tortilla back into the pan.

Step 7

Now depending on your taste preferences if you want it more moist and runny or more cooked inside cook the tortilla for 2-4 minutes more. Invert onto a serving plate and let sit for a few minutes.

Step 8

Serve tortilla warm alongside some fresh salad and crusty bread. Enjoy!
