The recipe for this potato omelet was found online at a site for recipes from Spain.


  1. Wash & cut potatoes into thin slices.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, then add potatoes & salt.
  3. Fry, stirring occasionally, perhaps about 5 minutes, until potatoes are a golden color, then remove from the skillet & spread out on a paper-towel covered platter so that much of the oil can be removed.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk eggs well, then to them add the potatoes, mixing well.
  5. Using the same skillet as before, cover the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of oil, about 1-2 tablespoons.
  6. Once the oil is hot, add potato & egg mixture, shaking the pan gently as you move the mixture, so that none sticks to the bottom.
  7. Once omelet seems to be cooked, about 10 minutes, use a large plate to tip the omelet out of the skillet. After adding a little more oil to the skillet, slide the omelet in again, this time putting it in top-side down & cooking it until the under-side is also golden.
  8. Serve hot or cold.

This is a delicious way to put just a few ingredients to work in creating a yummy meal! I omitted the salt (personal preference). Wonderful served with a simple salad. Thanks for sharing!

I cut the potatoes into cubes so my DD can eat by herself and I made for everyone individual omelets. DD had ketchup and mayo on top of it.It's a fast recipe and if you want to kick it up add the onions. Saw a while ago on Rachel Ray a recipe for "Spanish Pizza". The same thing plus the onions. That's when DD fell in love with fried potatoes with onions. I used to make something like this for DD but I poured the egg on the potato rather than mixed it. A big difference.
