Ingredients:

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

  1. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat and fry the potato cubes until cooked through, but not browned. Add the onion and cook until transparent.

  2. Add the eggs and parsley, sprinkle with salt and pepper and reduce the heat to low. Cook until bottom of the omelette is lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Invert the omelette onto large flat plate and carefully slide it back into the skillet. Cook until the second side has lightly browned and egg has completely set, about 4 minutes.

  3. Serve immediately.
