for 1 serving
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 3 potatoes, thinly sliced
- 2 cups olive oil (500 mL)
- 6 eggs
- 1 pinch salt
- Heat up the olive oil in a really hot pan.
- Thinly slice the onion.
- Slice the potatoes into 3-millimeters thick pieces.
- Fry the vegetables in the olive oil over high heat for 10-15 minutes until they caramelize.
- Drain the vegetables and save the olive oil for later use.
- Add 6 eggs to a bowl and whisk. Add the fried vegetables, stir, and leave to set for 15-20 minutes.
- In a nonstick pan, fry the egg mixture over high heat for 1 minute, then reduce to a low heat for 2-4 minutes.
