There`s a big difference between tortilla and tortilla; the mexican tortilla is known all over the world and it´s a kind of wrap. But the spanish tortilla doesn´t have much to do with it: It`s an omelet with onions and potatoes! Spanish people eat tortilla as whole meal, as tapa or as a cold snack to take to school and work. It`s delicious and nutritious, just how a dish has to be, and it`s fast to make. That`s why I posted this recipe: A friend of mine loves good food – especially foreign food – but she hasn´t got much time to cook. So, Lea, here`s your recipe 😉 Enjoy it!

I love to eat tortilla with salad or on a sandwich to take away: Today I had a tortilla sandwich with tomato and chives for lunch and everyone wanted some; finally I only had a half sandwich left 😉 Well, I hope you like it as much as my friends do!

How to make tortilla

You need:

– 2 eggs, mixed together in a small bowl

– 1/2 red onion, minced (I love their taste; it`s more sweeter then the white ones´)

– 1 sliced strip bacon / some bacon dices

– 3 cooked potatoes, diced

– 1 tbsp olive oil

– pepper, salt

1. Prepare the onion, the bacon and the eggs.

2. Heat the bacon, the potatoes and the onion with the olive oil for ca. 1 minute.

3. Add the eggs and fry on both sides; spice with salt and pepper.

Of course, you can also use other ingredients than bacon like tomatoes or other vegetables.Bild
