Y: 8 slices

1 Lb waxy potatoes ( i used yukon gold potatoes)
generous 1 3/4 cups olive oil
2 onions, chopped
2 large eggs
salt and pepper
sprigs of fresh flatleaf parsley, to garnish

Slice potatoes like chips/scalloped, dry slices very well.

Heat olive oil in a large, non-stick skillet.

Add potato slices and onions, then reduce the heat and cook the potatoes until tender.

Meanwhile, beat the eggs lightly, season well w/ salt and pepper.

Pour in the egg mixture, making sure the potatoes are equally distributed through out the skillet.

Add oil if necessary. Use a spatula to keep loosening the tortilla from the bottom of the skillet to avoid it from sticking.

To cook the other side of the tortilla, cover it w/ a plate and hold the plate in place with the other hand.

Quickly turn the skillet upside down so that the tortilla falls onto the plate.

Return the skillet to the heat and add a little more of the oil if necessary.

Slide the tortilla, cooked side up, back into the pan and cook for additional 3-5 minutes or until the bottom side is cooked.
