Here is a simple recipe to cook a wonderful Spanish omelette. For 4 to 6 persons: 1 cup of olive oil, 4 large potatoes (peel and cut in circle about 2 mm thick) salt to taste, one large onion, thinly sliced, four large eggs. Some people add thin slices of red peper together with the onion. Heat the oil in 9-inch skillet, add potatoes, one slice at a time so that they don't stick. Alternate layers of potato and onion. Cook slowly, medium flame. Do not burn. Turn occasionally until potatoes are tender, but not brown. They must be loose, not caked together. Beat eggs in a large bowl with a fork, salt to taste. Drain potatoes. Add potatoes to beaten eggs, pressing them so that eggs cover them completely. Let it sit for a few minutes. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in large skillet. Add potatoes-eggs mixture, spreading quickly. Lower the heat to medium. Shake pan to prevet sticking.
