2 tbsp olive oil
6 eggs, lightly beaten

1. Pierce the potatoes with a fork several times and microwave on high (900W) for 10 mins or (800W) for 11 mins.
Leave to cool and then skin and grate the semi-hard potatoes into a bowl.
2. Next, preheat your grill. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and add the potatoes ensuring an even spread in the pan.
Fry for a few minutes until golden underneath and then grill for just 5 mins to brown the top of the potatoes.
Return pan to medium heat on the hob and pour in the beaten eggs then cook for 5 minutes until golden underneath.
Now place the pan under the grill once again for 1-2 minutes just until the egg has set.
3. Cut the tortilla into wedges. Serve with vegetable sticks, such as carrot and red peppers, and add some rocket lettuce leaves.
