Fast Potato Mix

(2 servings)
  • 5 small cooked potatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • ½ red chili pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Cut the potatoes in thick slices. Cut the onion in half and slice it in thin half moon shapes. Slice the chili pepper in rings. Fry the potatoes in butter until they get a nice colour then add the canola oil, onions and chili pepper and lower the heat. Save some chili and onion for garnish. Add tomato puré and stir until the onion softens then push it to the side of the pan. Add some extra butter and the two eggs on the side and let them fry until half done then mix it with the rest. Salt and pepper and stir until ready. Serve with a big salad and garnish with red onion and chili.

I made this at my mums place to use up some of the previously cooked potatoes she had lying around in the fridge. It will probably serve two people but my mum had a salad so I ate the potato mix all by myself. Good side of this recipe is that it only took about ten minutes all in all to prepare. Bad side is that my top was all dotted with fat afterwards because of madly slicing potatoes into frying butter.
