    Utensils Used
    | 1. Add oil to a medium frying pan (the smaller the easier to flip). | 2. Dice the potatoes into small digit-sized pieces. | 3. Fry the potatoes, garlic, and onions until they are tender and translucent, respectively. | 4. Break the eggs into a large bowl, scramble them. | 5. Add the cooked potatoes/onions to the eggs. | 6. Mix, add your spices of choice. | 7. Heat the frying pan until it's super hot (with plenty of oil- probably more than you think). | 8. Add the potato/egg mixture into the pan in a quick motion. | 9. About 5 seconds later, turn down the heat to medium (you don't want it to burn, just make a nice little crust). | 10. Cook for 10 minutes or until you smell burning, make sure that the tortilla can move in the pan and is not stuck on the bottom | 11. THE FUN PART: take a plate that's wider than the pan, place it on top of the pan. | 12. Put one hand (with a glove) on the plate. | 13. Use the other hand to grab the pan and with one swift motion, flip the pan so the plate ends up on the bottom and the tortilla on the plate. | 14. Add more oil to the pan, put the half cooked tortilla back in- this time you'll cook the bottom. | 15. Cook for 3-5 more minutes. | 16. Cut like a pizza, serve hot, cold or room temperature (great with mayonnaise). | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
