Tenerife Banana Omelet

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Bec6206

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.

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.
