Colourful and packed with flavours, this thick, flat omelette, called a tortilla in Spanish, tastes good served at any temperature. The classic recipe contains only potatoes, onions and eggs, but this version has extra vegetables and lean ham added. Serve with a green salad.
Extra or alternative vegetables can be added for variety and to suit your own preference. How about sweetcorn, finely diced red or green peppers or sliced courgettes?
Very easy to cook. Tastes brilliant. did this for brekkie whilst on hols in the lakes and it really went down a treat with everybody, took them by surprise ha!!!! don,t be afraid to throw anything extra in, the cheese topping just adds a finishing touch. well recommended. - 01 Mar 2013
LOVE making these frittatas. I always use chunks of potato, par-boiled then pan fried in olive oil with sage and lots of chilli flakes. When the potatoes are getting crisp slice an onion and chuck in in. You could add some garlic too. And chorizo if you've got any. It all caramelizes and goes crisp and sticky. Grate some cheese over the top before you stick it under the grill (after you have added the eggs, of course.) So delicious. Also I find that letting these cool down rather than eating them hot is much more enjoyable. A green salad, crusty bread and a glass of red wine is all you need to go with it. - 11 Jul 2012
Great recipe, and flexible with what you have in the fridge! I was able to use some leftover grilled vegetables I had and didn't have any ham so I used chorizo sausage and thick sliced turkey. Delicious! Perfect for dinner and have the leftovers for breakfast the next morning! - 11 Aug 2011
