Spanish omelette

  1. 1. Mmmm… It’s delicious! Made by the pupils of 4th of ESO
  2. 2.  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.
  3. 3.  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 saussages.  It’s delicious you mustn’t miss it.
  4. 4.  500 grams of new potatoes.  1 onion, white better.  150 ml extra-virgin olive oil.  6 eggs.
  5. 5. Scrape the potatoes and get rid of the skin. Cut them into cubes. Chop the onion.
  6. 6.  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 aside).
  7. 7.  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.
  8. 8.  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.
  9. 9.  It looks so tasty!!
