Weekly recipes – Spanish Tortilla


9 eggs,

2 tbsp milk,

1 onion,

1 potato,

1 clove of garlic,

Splash of oil,

Salad – optional


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Start by finely chopping the onion, then peeling and chopping the potato into small cubes.

  2. On a medium heat lightly fry the onions for 5 minutes or until they begin to soften. Add the potato cubes and garlic and fry for a further 5 minutes.

  3. While the potatoes and onions soften whisk the eggs together with the milk and add salt and pepper.

  4. Turn off the heat and add the egg mixture to the pan. Give the mixture a stir to ensure the potato and onions are spread evenly.

  5. Put the frying pan in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Once cooked give the pan a good shake to make sure the tortilla comes out in one piece.

  6. Flip it out of the frying pan on to a chopping board, allow to cool slightly before cutting.

  7. Serve with side salad or as a snack.

One large frying pan will make 12 portions
