Cook Time


  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 large yellow onion, halved, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper, divided
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped parsley
  • 12 slices prosciutto


  1. In a nonstick skillet on medium heat, add oil, potatoes, onions, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook potatoes just until tender, do not let them break.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, parsley, remaining salt and pepper. Remove potatoes from skillet into egg mixture and gently toss. Pour mixture back into skillet.
  3. With a rubber spatula, pull the eggs away from the sides of the pan, moving the egg mixture around. Let cook for 5 to 7 minutes on medium heat, then flip tortilla over to cook underside. Push sides of tortilla into itself, this will lift the tortilla slightly. Cook for another 5 minutes on low heat.
