Spanish Tortilla - Tortilla Espanola

It's been so hot lately, I was looking for a nice light dish... and this fit the bill. I added parsley, parmesan and black pepper. Not exactly a Spanish dish anymore, but was very good with a green salad, tomatoes, olives, garlic bread, and wine.

It's different from a Mexican tortilla, in that it's more of a potato (egg & onion) 'cake' about an inch thick. Read that it can also be served as tapas when cut into little pieces.

Here are some links and good reads about the spanish tortilla:

Mods, perhaps I should have posted this in the Ethnic section. Whadda ya think? Hope folks will give this simple dish a try. The only slightly tricky trick is, flipping the 'cake' over on a plate.

Thanks, kads. I was getting a little tired of the BF's Mickey Mouse pancakes. I liked this one cause it's sort of like a frittata, but less eggy, and would make nice little bites as a party appy. (I love potatoes and onions, yum.) So glad you & yours enjoyed.

Spanish omelette is, indeed, a wonderful tapas recipe.
I use a large plate to turn the omelette - not easy though, is it?
There's an interesting Catalan version which uses courgettes ( zucchini) instead of potatoes. Yummy!
