The Spanish tortilla is the most common gastronomic specialty found all over Spain. There are hundreds of variations even in any one specific region, but the most common is the one made with eggs, potatoes and onion. Until recently, the first known document that referenced the tortilla de patatas was a letter
dated from 1817, led to the Cortes de Navarra, in which it was says that the people of Pamplona consumed two or three eggs in tortilla, for five or six people, mixing potatoes, bread, etc., while farmers had nothing to eat. Some claim that it was General Thomas Zumalacárregui who invented the potato omelette “for necessity”, as it was a simple and nutritious dish that can satisfy the appetite army . http://runningofthebulls.travel/.../the-mysterioushistory-of-the-tortilla-de-patatas/
