  • 1 Red Onion
  • 2 cloves of Garlic
  • 6 Free-Range Eggs
  • 500g New Potatoes (roughly 8 potatoes)
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheese
  • Sliced Tomato for the topping
  • Olive oil for cooking


1. Wash and cut the potatoes (peel if desired) into small cubes.

2. Boil the potatoes until soft. Allow the potatoes to cool.

3. Finely chop the onion and garlic. Gently fry in a little olive oil.

4. Crack the eggs into a bowl and mix together. Stir in the onion and garlic.

5. Pour a little olive oil into a non-stick fry pan and heat. Add the potatoes evenly across the pan and pour the egg mixture on top.

6. Cook for 15 minutes until almost set and golden brown underneath.

7. Gently push the tomatoes into the top of the omelette and sprinkle over the grated cheese.

8. Put the fry pan under the oven grill (be careful to ensure the pan handle is outside the oven as this could get very hot and burn).

9. Cook for a further minute or two until golden on top.

10. Ready to serve. Grind some black pepper over to taste.
