I fixed this omelet this morning. Oh boy was it good! I added the avocado and the cheese because the original recipe did not include them.
Spanish “Tortilla” – T & T (my way)
Original recipe from Taste of Home
“Not to be confused with Mexican tortillas, this Spanish dish is actually an omelet made with eggs, onions and potatoes. Serve with salsa.”
2 tbls. Olive oil, divided 1 small baking potato, peeled and thinly sliced or tiny diced 1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced or tiny diced 1 avocado, small diced 4 eggs ¼ to ½ c. shredded Mexican cheese mixture ½ tsp. salt black pepper to taste
Heat 1 tbl. Oil in a medium skillet over med. heat. Add potato and cook 5 minutes or until soft. Stir in onions and cook 5 minutes or so. Remove from heat. Transfer to a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat eggs with salt and pepper. Add potato mixture and mix well. Add remaining oil to skillet and heat over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture. Cook until omelet begins to set – 7 to 8 minutes. Carefully flip to cook other side. Add the avocado and cheese at this time. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until done and browned on bottom. Serve hot with salsa. Serves 4
