  3. Peel away the potato skin and cut the potatoes into 1cm (½in) cubes. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry onions for a few mins to soften, then add the potatoes, cook for 5 mins without stirring, to brown them. Add the red pepper to the pan and cook over a medium heat for 5 more mins.
  4. Break eggs into a bowl and beat lightly with a fork. Season well. Divide potato and onion mixture between tins, then carefully pour in the beaten egg.
