Tenerife Banana Omelet

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 5 mins

A tropical rendition of the classic Spanish omelet. In Spain, this is called "tortilla de platano,"- the Spanish word 'tortilla' refers to an egg dish rather than a flat bread like the Mexican tortilla. Recipe can easily be doubled and cooked in a large skillet.


  1. Beat eggs, salt and sugar.
  2. Thinly slice banana; carefully mix with eggs.
  3. Heat oil in small nonstick skillet.
  4. Pour in egg mixture; reduce heat.
  5. Cook until bottom of tortilla has browned.
  6. Invert a dinner plate over skillet and turn tortilla onto the plate.
  7. Slide tortilla off plate back into skillet (cooked, brown side will be up).
  8. Continue cooking until bottom is brown.
  9. Slide out of skillet onto serving plate.
  10. DO NOT FOLD. :).

It is not terrible. Although it does taste weird, It gave me something different for breakfast. I would only recommend it to a friend as a joke however. But none the less, not bad.

Different but not that bad. In a weird way it is good after getting used to it. DD (4 years) and I ate this with rice crackers.

This was a little weird, but a good kind of weird. I used Lemon Olive oil which complimented the bananas very nicely. I also spread seedless raspberry jam on top of the finished product.
