Breaking the eggs

  1. Drain –if necessary- and mix with the eggs. In using a fork to combine you’ll mash the biggest potato pieces.

Clotting the omelette

It’s up to you whether to make a big omelette or 4 small ones in a small skillet.

  1. Heat the skillet very much. Pour in a splash of olive oil. Ladle the egg-mixture over high heat: we want the outside clotted but the inside moist.
  2. Separate the edges from the skillet with the skimmer. And also shake the skillet for the omelette bottom not to get stuck.
  3. Flip with the aid of a dish that you would have placed over it. And clot the other side.
