Tortilla (Spanish Potato and Onion Omelet)

  • Preparation 15 MIN
    Cooking 45 MIN
  • Makes about 48 bite-size servings



  1. In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the onion, the garlic and the potatoes in the oil, stirring frequently until well browned, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool.
  2. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  3. In a bowl, gently combine the eggs and the potato mixture. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Line a 20-cm (8-inch) square Pyrex baking dish with parchment paper, allowing the paper to hang over 2 opposite sides. Oil the other 2 sides. Pour the egg mixture into the dish and transfer to the oven. Bake until the omelet is slightly puffy and the centre is set about 35 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes. Remove from the dish and cut into bite-size squares. Arrange on a platter and serve.
  5. Serve cold or at room temperature.


To vary the flavour, add chopped herbs, cooked and drained bacon, or grated cheese.
