Spanish Tortilla

11/10/10

To start off my recipes from around the world I'm going to use an oldie but a goody. I got this recipe from one of my roommates when I lived in Barcelona. This is a Spanish staple, and not necessarily for breakfast (although it's a fantastic breakfast item). The great thing about this recipe is that you can add almost anything into your tortilla. Once I really learned to make one of these well, I tested out different combinations of ingredients and really found several to my liking, but the potato, onion, and egg are the base for building the perfect tortilla. Enjoy!


Spanish Tortilla

Potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
Onions diced
Scramble eggs (but don’t cook yet) and set aside (amount dependant on number eating)

In olive oil in a pan (lots of it) fry the potatoes, after a few minutes add the onions.
Remove the potato/onion mixture from the oil and put into the bowl with the scrambled (uncooked eggs)
In a pan pour the mixture, cook for a little while careful not to burn the bottom
Using a plate, flip the mixture (trying to keep it intact)
Cook on this side for a few minutes
When done, flip back onto a plate and serve (cut slices and serve)
