      Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the potatoes, onion and a little salt and fry over low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, to prevent sticking and browning.

    3. 3
      Return 2 tbsp of the oil to the pan and heat until hot. Add the potato mixture, reduce the heat and cook gently for about 10 minutes, until it is golden underneath and almost set. Carefully flip the tortilla on to a large plate so the cooked side is on top. Add the remaining oil to the pan, ease the tortilla back in, and cook the second side for about 5 minutes.

      Liked the combination of potatoes and eggs. I added some fennel to it and garnished with sage and Parmesan cheese. I tried to cook it as an omelet but it didn't quite stay all together and my burner was a bit too hot. Tasted good! We had it for lunch, though it would be even better as a breakfast. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for ZWT5

      Didn't quite cook this as recommended. After soaking eggs and potatoes, I added to pan and stir fried instead of cooking gently. As a result, it didn't turn into an omelette, but I stir fried a bit more and made it into an eggs and potatoes mix. Added hot sauce, and extra salt and peppper. We enjoyed this as a vegetarian Spanish main dish, with a Spanish orange salad, yum! Spanish Asparagus Salad With Orange and Manchego Cheese
