Tortilla Española

A recipe straight from my host madre en España! A Spanish classic...hopefully this will turn out for you, she never really uses recipes, so this is the best I could get out of her. :)

Serves: Can be adjusted

1 egg per person plus one extra (3 people, use 4 eggs)
1 fist sized potato per person cut into small pieces
1/2 an onion cut into small pieces

Cook onion and potatoes in a frying pan on a medium setting with quite a bit of olive oil and a little bit of salt for about 20 minutes, the oil should almost cover the potatoes. Drain the oil (you can keep it and use it for future cooking if you want...) and mix the potatoes with the eggs. Put a little bit of olive oil in a pan and put mixture in. Mix while cooking, and then pat into shape when it starts to firm up. Use a plate to flip and cook the other side. This only takes a few minutes.

¡Que aproveche!
