Method

Preheat the oven to 180ºc 355ºf

Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and add about 3-4 tablespoons of oil (a thin layer).

Add the potatoes and spread evenly. Once they start sizzling, cover and cook for 2 minutes. having the lid on will help to steam them on the inside as well, as frying from the bottom, this will speed up the cooking time.

After a couple of minutes, open the lid and turn the potatoes over. Add the onions and season with salt and a little pepper.

Cook for further minute or two stirring the potatoes with the onions, add a little more oil if the mixture starts to stick to the bottom, depend on your frying pan.

Cover with the lid again and cook for 1-2 minutes, open and stir again. Cook for 2-3 more minutes, stirring as the bottom browns.

Total cooking time should be about 10-12 minutes and potatoes should be soft to bite.

Prepare the egg mixture - Whisk the eggs with a little salt and pepper.

Prepare a 12-muffin baking tin by greasing or adding a light spray of oil. 

Add 2-3 tablespoons of the egg mixture into each muffin casing. Divide the cooked potatoes and onions between the 12 muffin casings, lower them gently into the egg mixture.

Place in the oven on the middle shelf, for 10 minutes. The muffins will rise and firm up at the top. Once cooked, remove the tray and remove the muffins onto a plate.

Enjoy hot or cold

Serves with salad and a little mayo, homemade aioli or BBQ sauce
