Prep: 15 min. •  Cook: 45 min. •  Serves: 6 (2 wedges each)



Heat half the oil in a large sauté pan. Cook half the potatoes until tender and golden, turning often. Season with salt and pepper. Fry the remaining half and season. Put 4 tablespoons oil in pan and cook onions until soft, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine onions and potatoes.

In a large bowl, beat eggs and add to onion mixture. Heat pan with 3 tablespoons oil and pour in the eggs and potatoes. Add diced ham or Prosciutto. Reduce heat to low and cook for about 8-10 minutes, until golden brown on the bottom. Invert a platter over the pan and flip the omelet onto the plate. Add a tablespoon or two of oil to the pan and slide the omelet back into the pan. Cook until golden brown on the bottom. Slide out onto a serving platter. Cool a bit, then cut into wedges. Serve at room temperature.
