Italian Skillet Potatoes with Onion and Tomatoes

Skillet Potatoes with Onions and Tomatoes

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided                                             
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
20 yellow and red grape tomatoes, cut in half, lengthwise
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon kosher salt         
Freshly ground black pepper
Pinch red pepper flakes                    
1 pound mini multi-colored potatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thin
½ bunch fresh Italian parsley, roughly chopped

Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add 2 tablespoons of oil. Add onion; sauté until golden, 10-15 min. Add the tomatoes, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook about 5 minutes.  Remove tomato onion mixture and set aside in a small bowl.  

Add additional oil to skillet, when hot; add half of potato slices to the same skillet.  Top them with even layer of tomato and onions mixture.  Top with remaining potato slices. Cook potatoes until golden brown, about 15 min. Turn the potatoes over onto a plate larger than the skillet. Flip back on the skillet, pressing down on them with a spatula.

Cook the underside until golden brown and potatoes are tender throughout, about another 15 min. Slide from the pan onto a serving platter. Serve warm, top with fresh parsley.
For an unbelievable finish, drizzle some aged balsamic on top, and then wait for your own reaction!!!!
