Potato Omelet (Tortilla De Patatas) is a common savoury breakfast in Spain. It is usually eaten as a second breakfast around 10 to 11 am. We had this in BraCafe while we were in Barcelona.
I made this Potato Omelet for Ben’s lunch as he is a light eater while he is at work. This is great as it can be eaten warm or cold. This will be a great lunch box item when the kids are back to school next week.
I got this recipe from the Culinaria Spain book as mentioned in this post.
- 2/3 cup/150 ml olive oil
- 2 1/4 lbs/1 kg large potatoes (about 4 large russet potatoes), peeled and thinly sliced
- 2 tsp salt (I used 1.5 tsp only)
- 6 eggs
The hardest part in this recipe is to turn over the omelet. Chick on more for the instructions. (more…)
