    In abundant oil, let the potatoes cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes. Add a bit of salt. You want the oil to cover the potatoes. Every 5 minutes, stir the potatoes to make sure that all the slices are cooked.

    After 20 minutes, the potatoes should look this way. I personally love when some potatoes are a bit toasted.

    Last step! Set up the omelette. I usually do 1 minute and 10 seconds (1:10) for each side. I like the omelette to be a bit soupy, more “liquid”. If you like it to be more cooked, just let it cook for more time!
