    WheresTheBeef's Note:

    Perfect for one, easily increased for more people. Spent a summer living with an old couple in Spain, and this is the 'tortilla' she made for me at least once a week. Because I'm from the Midwest and we eat potatoes with everything, I've added the potato, but it can be easily left out to make the recipe more authentic.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Whisk together eggs and milk very VERY well. These amounts can be easily increased- if you're hungry enough, add an extra egg and an extra splash of milk.
    2. 2
      Heat olive oil in an omelet or small frying pan over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Optional: add potato slices to bottom of the skillet and let fry for 5 minutes, turning when bottom starts to brown.
    4. 4
      Add the onion and let brown for about 1 minute. Add more olive oil if needed.
    5. 5
      Add spinach to pan: if frozen, break up and let warm. If fresh, let wilt for a minute or so.
    6. 6
      Whisk the eggs and milk a little more. This is key to having a fluffy tortilla! When your arm is getting sore, slowly pour the mixture into the pan. Tilt pan to coat sides well. KEEP THE HEAT AT MEDIUM for 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      After 5 minutes, if your tortilla is still jiggly (liquidy) in the middle, reduce the heat and be sure to "unstick" the sides from the pan with a spatula. Once you're satisfied with the doneness of the eggs, remove from pan and devour with a small loaf of very crusty bread. Pretend you are in Spain. Mmmmm.
