Wash and dry potatoes; do not peel. Wrap each potato in a paper towel and microwave until al dente, about 5 minutes (depending on potato size). Cool completely or until able to handle then slice.
Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute for 3 minutes. Add potato slices and fry until browned, turning once, about 4 -6 minutes per side. Do now crowd the potatoes or they will fall apart when turning. Brown them in batches if necessary. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a medium pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggs and fry to your liking. Serve the potatoes topped with eggs and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
