We’re both big fans of Spanish cuisine and have enjoyed visits to some of Spain’s culinary hotspots, including the home of tapas, Barcelona, and the home of paella, Valencia. We often take inspiration from our travels when it comes to making dishes in the house, and with potatoes, eggs, peppers and chorizo sitting in our fridge and cupboard, our minds went back to a Spanish omelette we enjoyed in Valencia, so we have decided to recreate this dish. Obviously you can use different ingredients to make your very own Spanish omelette, but we both enjoy the flavour of chorizo and would strongly recommend trying it out.
- 4 Medium eggs
- 1/2 Chorizo sausage, chopped
- 1 – 2 Pre-boiled potatoes, cooled & diced
- 1 Red pepper, chopped
- 1 Spring onion, chopped
- Grated cheese
- Splash of milk
Cooking and preparation time – approx 20 – 30 minutes
1. Prepare your ingredients:
This recipe is a good way to use up any left over potato you may have from a previous dinner. Otherwise, begin by boiling 2 potatoes until cooked and leave them to cool. Cube these potatoes and assemble with the rest of your chopped ingredients.
2. Start to cook your omelette:
Beat your eggs lightly and add a splash of milk. Season this well. Place a large frying pan over a medium heat and drizzle with a little oil (ensure this frying pan has a heatproof handle as you will be finishing the omelette under the grill). Once the pan is pre-heated, pour enough of your egg mix to cover the base. Spread over the potato, peppers, chorizo and spring onions, before covering with the rest of the egg mixture. Allow this to cook gently for a 3 – 4 minutes before putting under a pre-heated, medium grill. Cook under the grill for a further 4 – 5 minutes.
3. Add cheese and place omelette under grill:
Now that your omelette is almost cooked, add some grated cheese to the top of it and place the frying pan back into the grill for 2 – 3 minutes. Cook until the cheese is golden and serve up your little taste of Spain.
