There are few different histories about the
invention of the Spanish omelette.
We have chosen the 19th version: During the
early Charlist Wars in Spain (19th Century) a
general wanted a cheap meal to feedhis
soldiers so that starvation finished.
The first recipe of the Spanish omelette was
something similiar to pancakes; they took
olive oil,eggs and potatoes and they put it in
the pan with hot olive oil.
Nowdays we make it with more eggs and
sometimes we add onions, peppers and even
It’s delicious you mustn’t miss it.
500 grams of new potatoes.
1 onion, white better.
150 ml extra-virgin olive oil.
Scrape the potatoes and get rid of the skin.
Cut them into cubes. Chop the onion.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the potatoes
and onion and stew gently, partially covered, for 30
minutes, stirring occasionally until the potatoes are
softened. Strain the potatoes and onions through a
colander into a large bowl (set the strained oil
Beat the eggs separately, then stir into the
potatoes with the onion and plenty of salt.
Heat a little of the strained oil in a smaller
pan. Tip everything into the pan and cook on
a moderate heat, using a spatula to shape the
omelette into a cushion.
When almost set, invert on a plate and slide back into the pan
and cook a few more minutes. cook the omelette briefly and
press the edges to keep the cushion shape. Slide on to a plate
and cool for 10 minutes before serving.
