Spanish Tortilla!

The tortilla as a meal? You bet. This is a Spanish Tortilla. Simple, filling and deeee-lishusssss!! And, it'll last you for days!


7 or 8 Eggs

5 Potatoes

1 Onion

1 Lg bottle of Olive Oil

Do it-

-Peel your potatoes and slice them into thin pieces -Peel your onions and chop into small pieces -Pour 1/4 inch of olive oil into a saucepan over medium heat -Crack your eggs into a bowl -Place one potato slice into olive oil -When it swims, pour the onions and potatoes into the pan and cook and stir for about 15-20 minutes -When potatoes bend, strain the onions and potatoes into the bowl with the eggs and stir -Drain olive oil from pan -Pour eggs, onions and potatoes into pan and cook for a few minutes, like an omelet -Then, Dar una Vuelta that baby! (Flip the budding tortilla as high into the air as humanly possible and don't forget to catch it on the way down as long as the top is now the bottom. Or you can simply put a plate over the pan, turn it over and slide it back into the pan) -Cook until you think it's done. Slide it onto a plate and enjoy this tasty treat between two pieces of bread, on a toothpick or in any number of ways.

    zandeelio, this is a Spanish tortilla as made in Spain. It seems like an omelette but is far from it. This was crafted by the Spaniards in the video and was delicious. We ate it for 2 days afterward. Try that with an omelette! An omelette is made quickly in a pan with butter and flipped over on itself. That is definitely not possible with the Spanish tortilla. They were masters of food preparation and after making this they then made all the food for a paella party the next night.

    wouldn't this be more of an omelette rather than a tortilla?
