Spanish Frittata

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by asta99

I learned this from a dear friend from Madrid. It is a fantastic breakfast omelet or frittata. I sometimes roll this up in a tortilla or Lavash with low fat sour cream and salsa- you can add beans or rice and have a yummy breakfast burrito!

Ehhh, was bland and not traditional. The authentic version does not include cheddar as an ingredient. Also, you are supposed to season this with salt & pepper. When DH and I go to NYC area for business, we go to this place in NJ called Don Pepe and they serve this in their lounge as "tortilla" fritata and it's incredible. I suggest seeing if their recipe is online.
