Found this recipe on the internet. It had ingredients that I like and was stated to be a typical spanish omelette. Update: This is just the basic start, use this and then add seasonings, vegetables and meats and/or cheeses to suit your taste. After cooking it you might want to add ketchup, salsa or hot pepper sauce, be creative!!!!


  1. Peel potatoes.
  2. Cut potatoes and onion into small cubes.
  3. Add salt (to taste) to potatoes and fry them until they are lightly crunchy. in olive oil.
  4. About the last 5 mins of cooking add the onion to the potatoes. When tender, transfer potatoes and onion to papertowels to drain.
  5. Beat the eggs with a pinch of salt.
  6. Lightly coat frying pan with olive oil. Add the eggs, potatoes and onions and cook over low heat, flipping omelette once to cook other side.
  7. Cooking is a creative process, and this recipe lends itself to your creativity! Add spices, herbs, meats, veggies and cheese to your taste. This is just the base to a Spanish omelette!

I would recommend that you do include more flavors in this dish when you make it. It is good, but it just needed more flavor.

Scaled back for 1 serve and thoroughly enjoyed this very fillinbreakfast, I did take up the option of adding other ingredients and added some diced smoky ham and served with toasted wholemeal/wholegrain bread, thank you diner524, made for ZAAR Stars tag game.

This was very good. I made the basic version and I thought it had plenty of flavor. I thought about putting cheese on it, but somehow the potatoes made it seem creamy and it didn't need cheese. Next time I might add some fresh herbs like chives or parsley, but it is great as it is.
