Number of Servings: 4


    4 large eggs
    1 roasted red pepper, chopped
    1/2 sweet onion, chopped
    3 small potatoes, diced
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1 tbsp fresh parsley
    salt and pepper, to taste


Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet on medium heat. When hot, add potatoes and onions. Cook 15 minutes, until soft and golden brown at the edges. Strain potatoes and onions (you can save olive oil for another use later) and put aside. Whisk together eggs with parsley, peppers, salt, and pepper. Add potato-onion mixture to egg mixture. Re-heat 1 tsp olive oil in the skillet on medium heat. Pour egg mixture into the pan and cook 4-5 minutes, until edges are set. Using a large plate (larger than the pan!), flip the omelet onto the plate and slide back into the fry pan (uncooked side down). Cook another 4-5 minutes. Entire omelet should be set. Serves 2 for a hearty breakfast, 4 for an appetizer, or many as tapas. Slice and serve accordinly.
