    This substantial tortilla is delicious hot or cold. Cut it into chunky wedges and serve for supper or a light lunch.The addition of spicy chorizo and tangy cheese gives it a wonderful, rich flavor. Found it on

    1. 1
      1. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a 8-inch non-stick frying pan and fry the sausage until golden brown and cooked through. Lift out with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
    2. 2
      2.Add a further 2 tbsp oil to the pan and fry the potatoes and onions for 2-3 minutes, turning frequently (the pan will be very full).
    3. 3
      3.Cover tightly and cook over a gentle heat for about 30 minutes turning occasionally, until softened and slightly golden.
    4. 4
      4. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, parsley, cheese, sausage and plenty seasoning.
    5. 5
      5. Gently stir in the potatoes and onions until coated, taking care not to break up the potato too much.
    6. 6
      6. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper and heat the remaining 2 tbsp oil.
    7. 7
      7. Add the potato mixture and cook, over a very low heat, until the egg begins to set. Use a metal spatula to prevent the tortilla from sticking and allow the uncooked egg to run underneath.
    8. 8
      8. Preheat the grill (broiler) to high. When the base of the tortilla has set, which should take about 5 minutes, protect the pan handle with foil and place the tortilla under the grill until it is set and golden.
    9. 9
      9.Cut into wedges and serve garnished with parsley.

      This was so good! I did use a mild sausage and parmesean cheese and it was still really yummy! I will be making this again. Made for ZWT5 - Epicurean Queens

      This hit a home run with DH. This recipe can be reduced to 2 servings using 2 whole eggs. It makes for a substantial supper. The sausage adds the needed spiciness for a great combination of flavors. Made for *ZWT5*

      Delicious! Thanks tons for a great Spanish dinner! I really liked this recipe but had to substitute parmesan for manchego cheese, which I couldn't find. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. The flavour of this was very nice and we really enjoyed the chorizo (I used mild). I also used 5 large eggs instead of 4 extra large. Perfect! Made for ZWT5 for my teammate. Thanks!
