  • 2 Idaho potatoes - peeled, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 onion - chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil - divided
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 eggs
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Peel and chop potatoes into small pieces.
  2. In a medium non-stick skillet, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and butter on medium heat. Add chopped potatoes, chopped onions, some salt and pepper. Lower the heat, stir and cover, simmer for a few minutes until the potatoes are golden brown, about 6 minutes.
  3. While the potatoes are cooking. In a medium, bowl, scramble the eggs. When the potatoes are tender to the fork, remove and add the potatoes into the egg mixture and mix until well combined.
  4. Using the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon of oil, and heat on low heat for 1 minute.
  5. Add the egg and potato mixture and simmer for a few minutes, until the bottom is golden brown. Then gently flip the omelet over and continue to cook the other side for about 2 to 4 minutes more, until the bottom of the omelet is golden brown and fully cooked. Remove and cut into triangle slices and serve.
  6. Serves 4
Keep in mind, the smaller you make the potato pieces, the faster they cook up!
