  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying

  1. Heat about 1/4 cup of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced potatoes and onions, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender and lightly golden, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and drain any excess oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs together with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the cooked potatoes and onions to the egg mixture, stirring gently to combine.
  4. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Pour the egg and potato mixture into the skillet, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.
  5. Cook the tortilla for about 5-7 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown and the top is set but still slightly runny.
  6. Carefully flip the tortilla using a large plate or lid to cover the skillet. Slide the tortilla back into the skillet to cook the other side for another 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Once the tortilla is cooked to your liking, transfer it to a serving plate and let it cool slightly before slicing into wedges.
  8. Serve the Spanish Tortilla warm or at room temperature, with crusty bread and a simple green salad on the side.
