How to Make a Spanish Potato Omelette

Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Cut the potatoes into thin slices. Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the potatoes until browned, but still soft.

Scoop the potatoes out and set them on a paper towel to drain. Salt them as they're drying.

Cook until the edges of the omelette begin to set, then cook for 5 minutes under a broiler. Allow it to cool slightly before serving.

Notes

– While there are a few different types of potato you can use for a Spanish tortilla, but waxy potatoes tend to work best. Yukon Golds are wonderful, and Red Bliss would work well here, too. Steer clear of floury potatoes like Russets.

– Substitute spring onions for yellow onion or do a combination of both. 2 or 3 should do the trick.

– Use a good quality olive oil for this recipe – it'll make your Spanish potato omelette even tastier.

– If you don't want to use the broiler, gently slide the tortilla onto a plate, invert the skillet over the plate, and continue cooking.
