    Katzen's Note:

    The potato omelette is a traditional Spanish tapas, or appetizer, but it's equally good for breakfast or brunch. Found while looking for spanish recipes for ZWT5.

      Yum - very tasty eggs! I cut this down to 2 servings; I don't care for onion so left it out, and I used a small red potato so I didn't peel it. Served with salsa and enjoyed a great breakfast - thanks for sharing the recipe!

      This is very good and was ready in no time. I used my Kitchenaid slicer attachment and the potatoes were cut in about 30 seconds! Great instructions and I followed them to a 't'. I added more salt and pepper when it was done, but that's about it. I suppose you could use an egg substitute in a pinch. Made for 1~2~3 Tag. Thanks Katzen! :)

      Made for V'gn Swap July 09. This is usu. my DH's specialty, but I tried this. I thought it wasn't quite as good as his, but he loved it! I added garlic powder to the potatoes and the eggs, but otherwise made as is. I added more oil bcz it didn't look like enough, but then it ended up being too much! Also used the box grater to slice; worked well.
