Tortilla Espagnola – Spanish Tortilla
In this popular Spanish breakfast dish – Tortilla is translated to omelette, usually made with potatoes and egg. I like to add sweet potato for a really nice contrast, everything bakes until slightly souffléed and golden brown!
Note that if you want a nice presentation on this tortilla, you may want to use a pie plate with a removable bottom, but if you do, make sure to place it on a baking sheet before pouring the egg mixture in - otherwise you will have egg everywhere!
