  • 14 oz potatoes (yukon gold or maris piper) (400 grams)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 white onion chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt omit for babies under 1


  • Preheat the oven to 360°F / 180°C.
  • Peel the potatoes – take a mandolin slicer (or use a knife) and slice them very thinly (about ½ cm or ¼ inch).
  • Peel and slice the onion into small pieces. Add the potatoes, onions, salt and olive oil into a bowl and mix well to combine.
  • Layer the ingredients into a baking dish and place in the oven for 30 minutes. In the same bowl (saving on washing up) add the eggs and whisk them. Leave them aside.
  • After 30 minutes, pour the eggs onto the potato & onion mixture and bake for another 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and serve with a side salad.
