To start, prepare all the ingredients. Chop the onion very finely and set aside in a small bowl. Peel the potatoes and cut them up very thinly and set aside in a second bowl.
Now cut up the bacon and set aside. Grate the cheese and set aside. Finally, chop the parsley finely and set aside. Preheat the oven at a medium-high temperature. Choose a medium size skillet, suitable for being used in the oven. Put the skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Once the olive oil is hot, add the onion and cook continuously stirring for a few minutes. When the onion becomes transparent, proceed to add the potato slices covering the pan. At this point add a little salt.
Keep the skillet over heat until the potatoes soften. Do not wait until the potatoes are fried, just soften them. Then add the bacon and cook. Keep cooking until the bacon has browned. Mix everything very well. Now add the eggs in a medium bowl and beat them a little. Add the eggs to the skillet. Make sure the eggs cover the whole mixture of potatoes, onions and bacon. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add now the grated cheddar cheese and the fresh parsley. Remove from the heat. Then bake in the oven until the eggs are ready and the cheese has melted. Once the cheese has melted remove from the oven. And your potato skillet is ready to be served immediately.
What type of potato is best?
The best potatoes for frying in a pan are russets, red potatoes or Yukon Gold.
Should you rinse potatoes before frying?
Rinse or soak the potatoes for an hour (or, better yet, overnight) to remove some of the starch from the surface and prevent the sugars from browning before the potatoes are cooked.
