Heat ⅔ of the oil in a round frying pan and cook the potatoes, covered on a low heat for 15 minutes or until they are soft. Remove the lid, increase the heat and briefly fry the potatoes until they are golden-brown . Drain any remaining oil from the pan.

Beat the eggs vigorously in a bowl and stir the potatoes into the eggs. Season well with salt and pepper and let stand for 15 minutes.

Heat the remaining oil in the pan on a high heat. Add the egg and potato mixture, spreading our the potatoes evenly and patting down and leave to cook for a few minutes. Then flip the omelette over with the help of a large plate or lid and cook the other side until golden brown. Walt MM
