How To Make A Delicious Spanish Tortilla

Say hello to you new best eggy friend.

Posted on

Because you're about to get schooled by the Spanish tortilla.


"Tortilla" here doesn't mean the flat thing you put taco stuffin' into; Spaniards apply the name to a kind of yummy, dense, enormous potato-and-egg pancake-like thing.

It's delicious for brunch, but also is happy to hang out at room temperature and makes an ideal tapas-time snack.

Here's what you'll need to make it:


Serves 6

2 pounds white potatoes, peeled
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
8 eggs
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
