A Special Taste Of Spain In This Omelette

On this side of the world we have similar food ideas and this one is truly a special one from Spain. It is an omelette but it is beautifully different.

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 half onion, sliced very thin
  • 2 medium yellow potatoes, peeled and sliced very thin
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • pinch of salt and white pepper
  • 3 tbsp. garlic aioli
  • 100 g Serrano ham
  • small amount of baby spring greens

In a large fry pan, heat the oil to medium and cook the onions for about 2 minutes, just until they have softened. Now add the potatoes and gently stir. Cook this for about 15-18 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onions are caramelized and the potatoes are cooked through.

Drain off the oil, keeping 1 tbsp. in reserve. Transfer the potatoes and onion for a bowl and set aside for about 5 minutes. Add the eggs, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Let this sit for 15 minutes so the eggs can thicken up as it becomes absorbed.

Now heat the 1 tbsp. oil and over a high heat, add the egg mixture, cooking for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low and cook a further 3 minutes. With a rubber spatula loosen the sides of the omelette. Place a large plate over the pan and turn it upside down on the plate.

Now, this is tricky, turn it back in the pan and cook a further 4-5 minutes to cook through and become golden in colour.

On a serving board, cut into wedges, add the ham on each slice and a small topping of the greens.
