Ingredients

    Serves 8

    *Potato, raw, 6 large (3" to 4-1/4" dia.)
    Egg, fresh, 5 large
    Onions, raw, 1 medium (2-1/2" dia)
    Salt, 1 dash
    Pepper, black, 1 dash
    Olive Oil, 0.3 cup

Directions

Peel potatoes and cut into slithers about 1/4"

Put oil into frypan and heat, then add potatoes moving occassionally so they don't stick to the pan. After 5 minutes add chopped onion and continue frying until potatoes are cooked through (about 10 minutes) turn heat off.

In a large bowl beat eggs, salt and pepper. Removed potato and onion mix from frypan leaving behind as much oil as possible and mix with eggs, mushing potatoes slightly into the eggs.

Remove excess oil from frypan and return to a medium heatheat (there should be a thin coating of oil still on the pan), then add the mixture and cook on 1 side for about 6 - 8 minutes, moving occassionally so it doesn't stick to pan.

To turn over, place a plate over the frypan lift and turn so that mixture is on plate, then slide back onto the frypan (raw side down) and cook for another 6 - 8 minutes until golden on both sides.

Serves 8 either hot or cold
