A different way to make a Tortilla

Special dressing: Tom Waits (turn player on)

This is a different way to perform the omelette. Usually, I take a saucepan and cook it there, but to follow this recipe you will also need the oven. The result is really good and it has this different touch! When done in a saucepan and without the cheese as ingredient is called “Tortilla a la paisana” but we could call it Veggie’s Omelette. Eat it as a main dish with some multicolored salad or have it as a tapa with a good red wine or a cold beer!

•Ingredients for 4 servings: 1 garlic clove, 3 green fresh onions, 1 green pepper, 1 red pepper, 200 grs. of potatoes (one medium size), 5 big eggs, 175 grs. Of cheese (I used mozzarella – I don’t like strong cheese), salt and olive oil.

•Use a saucepan with some olive oil and when its getting hot add the red and green pepers cleaned, washed and cut without their seeds, the onions (reserve green part aside) and the garlic. Stir during 10 minutes, add some salt and then let cool.

•Preheat oven at 190ºC and cover with silk paper an oven tray. Pour some olive oil and spread all over the surface.
•Cut the green part of the onions we have reserved in small pieces and add to a bowl where you have previously beaten the eggs and added some salt and the mozzarella cheese.

•When the veggies are cold add them to the bowl. Try to leave the oil in the saucepan.
•Boil the potatoe or put it in the micro for faster cooking. Peel it and fry in the same oil used for the veggies for 1 minute.
•Cut in small dices and add to the bowl when it’s cold. Mix all ingredients well.

•Pour all the mixture in the oven’s tray.
•Position rack in the center of the oven and let it cook for 30 to 40 minutes.
•When done, let it cool down and take carefully away the silk paper.

•Cut in same size pieces.

Maybe there’s enough for 5 servings.

Your tortilla looks very appetizing. I would have it with some acorn Iberian ham!

Peter you are so smart! Yeah, iberian acorn ham fits perfect… but it will go with the next tortilla… you are just too fast for me!!! ;-)

Hmmm yummy. Over here we call that dish frittata. I love the way yours look in the tray. Too bad we don’t have iberian acorn ham over here, or maybe we do but it is a little bit too expensive :(

Hola Ben, yes it’s a pitty you don’t have Iberian Acorn Ham. Although I know of a brand of I.A.H. that now can export to the U.S.A. They follow the FDA (I think) requirements now (in Spain) and they are allowed to export. It just happened. If you are interested, let me know and I’ll find out exact details.

Abrazos to you too, querido!
