Spanish Style Omelette
A big thank you to my Niece, Aysha 🙂 for this delightful Spanish Style Omelette recipe. This recipe is a cross between a Spanish Omelette (Tortilla Española) and a Frittata. So what’s the difference? An omelette is usually cooked from start to finish on the stove top and uses a good non-stick pan. Cooking a frittata, starts on the stove top and is finished up in the oven, so it is usually cooked in a cast iron pan or bake-ware.
The fillings for an omelette and frittata can be similar, but Fritatta’s can contain extra toppings such as cooked meat, cheeses, vegetables and pasta. It resembles a crustless Quiche. The word ‘Frittata’ is Italian and roughly translates to “fried”. A classic Spanish omelette contains just onions and potatos. In this recipe, we have combined the two to make this tasty and easy to make breakfast or brunch. Perfect, for when you are craving eggs and also need a hearty meal.
