It’s an egg and potato dish that’s cooked in a skillet and served as a tapa, a main dish with a baguette and green salad, or even enjoyed as a snack. Deliciously homemade that can be enjoyed with family.



  • 3 medium potatoes
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1½ cups (360ml) Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt to taste
  • 1tsp black pepper to taste


  1. Peel the potatoes cut them in half lengthwise, then cut in half again while the flat side on the cutting surface. Slices potatoes into thin slices.
  2. Add olive oil to an Avacraft Stainless Steel Frying Pan 8” Inch, heat over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add sliced potatoes and fry for 2-3 minutes, then add sliced onion. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10-15 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender. Do not overcook.
  3.  Drain the potatoes and reserve the oil. Let cool slightly. In a large bowl beat the eggs with salt. Add potato and onion and toss to coat. Let the mixture sit for about 20 minutes.
  4.  In the same pan where you fried the potatoes, pour back 2 tablespoons of the reserved oil and heat. Pour potato mixture into the pan, cook on medium heat for 6-8 minutes. When the bottom is cooked, flip the tortilla, using a big plate, and slide it back to the pan.
  5. Then use the spatula again to press the sides of the omelette in and under, to keep that rounded edge.
  6. Cook on high heat for 1 minute, and low heat for 2-3 more minutes or until done. It’s done when it feels set in the center and a knife or toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Serve warm or at room temperature. Cut into wedges.
