Ingredients for Spanish Potato Omelette Recipe

  • Potatoes 5

  • Eggs 2 medium

  • Potatoes 3 small

  • Olive oil 3 tablespoons

  • Salt to taste

  • Peppercorns 10-12


Step 1

Cut onions in half, then thinly slice each half and separate the layers into half-moon shapes. Peel and wash potatoes.

Step 2

Slice them into thin rounds. Rub them on a clean cloth to get them as dry as possible. Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in an eight-inch non-stick frying pan.

Step 3

When it is smoking hot, add the potatoes. Toss them around in the oil to get a good coating. Lower heat, cover and cook till the potatoes are half done.

Step 4

Add onions and toss. Add a generous sprinkling of salt and freshly crushed peppercorns. Cook further for two minutes tossing them from time to time so that they do not brown. Set aside to cool.

Step 5

Break the eggs into a large bowl and, using a fork, whisk them lightly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the potato-onion mixture and mix.

Step 6

Heat the remaining oil in the pan. Pour the egg mixture. Lower heat to minimum immediately. Cover and cook. Draw the edges in gently with a knife to give a firm shape to the omelette.

Step 7

When the surface looks firm and dry, turn and cook the other side. Cook further for two minutes and remove from heat. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.
