Hi Mateix! I've never done this, but give it a try. (Potatoes, and eggs are cheap) Grate the potatoes, (like "Hash browns") Mix them with beaten eggs, and fry in skillet, with a little oil. MAYBE that will make your "cake". Please tell us how it came out! I hope I helped! Atomic Jed!

Potatoe omelette

This sounds like a recipe for a potatoe omelette that is common in many spanish tapas bars. I'm sure you can find a more formal recipe if you search in google for the terms "tapas potatoe and egg".

Otherwise, the last time I made this was 1983. Start with a small cast iron skillet. I used a good amount of olive oil and sauteed the sliced potatoes with a little black pepper. For more flavor, also ad a bit of chopped onion. Then lightly beat an egg or two with some salt and pour over it. You can cover with a lid and allow it to set a bit.

Once set, carefully flip it over and brown. slide onto a plate and serve.

The spanish tapas dish is called a tortilla. Here are what appear to be some good authentic recipes.


The only twist on these I would recommend is boiling your potatoes first until forked tender and then chilling overnight. A chilled, cooked potato will slice better, saute better (crisper) and absorb less oil.

Grate two potatoes and one onion. Mix them with beaten eggs and fry them in a pan. You can add a bit of sour cream when it's finished. This dish is called "Lithuanian pancake".
