  1. 1
    Cut the potatoes in very thin slices. The thinner, the crispier your fried potatoes will be. Season the slices with Salt and paprika powder
  2. 2
    Oil up your pan and turn up your stove to high heat. The best pan to use for this is a cast iron pan, but a stainless steel or a coated pan are ok too. Be careful with the hot oil! Never pour water onto hot oil!
  3. 3
    Once the oil has heated up, carefully introduce your potato slices to your pan. Make sure that your pan is covered, but don't put any more slices in. It's fine if not all of your slices fit at once, you'll just have to make multiple batches
  4. 4
    Fry the potatoes for 2 to 4 minutes per side, until they are golden. Make sure to not flip them too often, ideally only once
  5. 5
    If you make multiple batches, put the fried potatoes onto a paper towel to get rid of the extra oil
  6. 6
    Once you cooked all potatoes, turn down your stove to low heat and let the pan cool down for a bit
  7. 7
    In the meantime, you can cut up the bell pepper and onions into small cubes
  8. 8
    Add the bell pepper and onions to the pan and let them simmer for 2 to 3 minutes
  9. 9
    Add the eggs and the fried potatoes and fry everything until the egg is not running anymore. Make sure to stirr thorougly while cooking
