10 In a heavy 8- to 10-inch skillet, melt 8 tablespoons of the butter bits over moderate heat.
11 Add the onions and, stirring frequently, cook for about 5 minutes.
12 Using a slotted spoon, add the onions to the potatoes.
13 In the butter remaining in the skillet, fry the bread cubes until crisp.
14 Add the bread cubes, eggs and parsley to the potatoes.
15 Beat vigorously with a wooden spoon for 2 or 3 minutes.
16 In the prepared baking dish, transfer the mixture and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
