  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • Olive oil for cooking
  • 6 large Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup of feta cheese, crumbled


  • Thinly slice potatoes and onion.
  • In a small nonstick skillet, add 1/2 inch of olive oil, then heat the oil to around 350F over medium high heat.
  • Add the onion and potatoes and fry until golden, about 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer the fried potatoes and onions into a mixing bowl and add the eggs, parsley, and desired amount of salt and pepper. Stir together and let sit for about 5 minutes, until mixture has slightly thickened.
  • Discard most of the oil from the skillet, leaving around 1 to 2 tablespoons, and pour in the egg mixture. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes, until the bottom is golden brown and fully releases from the pan.
  • Flip the egg mixture onto a plate or cutting board, then carefully slide it back into the pan to cook the opposite side for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the center is perfectly cooked through.
  • Remove from the pan and top with cheese.
  • Enjoy!
