Chef Paco and the team share how to make a typical Spanish Omlette. In Spain this is called a "Tortilla de Patata". Try it at home, it's easy and delicious!
Recipe: Spanish Tortilla (Spanish potato omlette)
4 large sour potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
8 large eggs
½ large onion, chopped
1/2 pint of mild olive oil. (The equivalent of two glasses of water)
Salt to taste
Heat 4 tablespoons of oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Fry potatoes for 10 minutes. Add onion and allow to simmer another 5 minutes.
Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Take the potato/onion mixture out of the skillet (make sure most of the excess oil is not included) and add it to the bowl with your eggs. Mix well.
Heat a tablespoon of oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture to the skillet and simmer, without stirring, for 10 minutes.
Place a large plate over the pan and invert. Pass the tortilla to the plate. The cooked side should be golden and upward. Carefully slide the tortilla to the skillet and cook the other side for 5-10 minutes.
