Preparation -- 10 minutes

Peel and finely chop the red onion and garlic cloves. Peel the potatoes and create thin slices, make sure the slices are evenly so they're done at the same time.

Beat the eggs with pepper and salt and set them aside. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees celsius or 350 degrees fahrenheit.
