Tortilla Española, also known as Spanish omelette, is a delicious and easy-to-make dish that can be enjoyed any time of day. It is a traditional Spanish recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation, and it is a staple in many households in Spain.
In this blog post, we will show you how to make a delicious Tortilla Española in just a few simple steps.
- 5 medium-sized potatoes
- 1 large onion
- 6 eggs
- Olive oil
Peel and slice the potatoes into thin rounds. Slice the onion thinly as well.
In a large frying pan, heat up some olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the sliced potatoes and onions to the pan. Sprinkle some salt over them and stir occasionally. Cook for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and slightly brown.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs together with some salt.
Once the potatoes and onions are cooked, use a slotted spoon to remove them from the pan and transfer them to the mixing bowl with the eggs. Mix everything together.
In the same frying pan, heat up some more olive oil over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, pour the egg and potato mixture into the pan. Cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the bottom of the omelette is cooked and slightly brown.
To flip the omelette, place a large plate on top of the frying pan and carefully flip the pan over so that the omelette lands on the plate. Then, slide the omelette back into the frying pan to cook the other side for another 5-7 minutes.
Once the Tortilla Española is fully cooked, transfer it to a plate and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing it into wedges. Serve it warm or at room temperature.
