  1. Use a sharp knife to cut the potatoes and onions into thin slices and strips. Heat olive oil in medium skillet.
  2. Add the potato slices and onion slices to the pan and sauté over low heat for about 10 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Remove the skillet from the heat and set aside.
  3. Put a little salt, pepper and eggs into a large bowl and mix well. Add potato slices and onions.
  4. In the same frying pan, heat the olive oil and pour in the egg mixture mixed with the potato slices and onions. Cook for 8 minutes until bottom is set. During the cooking process, use a sharp knife to gently lift the edge of the omelet to allow the uncooked egg yolk to flow to the bottom. Shake the pan from side to side from time to time to prevent it from sticking.
  5. Place a large ovenproof dish upside down over the skillet, invert the omelet into the pan, and slide the omelet back into the pan. Cook for 5 minutes or more, until the bottom of the omelet is golden brown.
  6. Cut the quiche into triangles and serve, garnished with pimento.

  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the whole eggs with a little salt and pepper. Stir in with the potatoes and onion.
  4. In the same frying pan, heat up olive oil and pour in the potato mixture. Cook gently for 8 minutes until set underneath. During cooking, lift the edges of the tortilla with a spatula, and allow any uncooked egg to run underneath. Shake the pan from side to side, to prevent sticking.
