Spanish(ish) Omelette


A spanish(ish) omelette because a true Spaniard would only have potatoes, onion and garlic (maybe bacon and definitely not paprika!). I’ve added a bit more veg to add a bit of colour and make it a more rounded meal.

eggs, oil, onion, red pepper, bacon, potatoes, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, paprika, chilli flakes, salt, pepper, salad or veg to serve

20 minutes serve 3-4

Start by chopping up about 300gm of potato into small 2-3cm cubes. Boil for about 10 minutes or until soft. While the potatoes are cooking, add a generous glug of oil to a frying pan, once warm add 1tbsp pf paprika and 1/2 tsp of chill flakes, stir for about 30seconds then add one finely chopped onion and soften. Next add a finely chopped red pepper and 2 slices of cubed bacon. Stir until the bacon is cooked, add the potatoes, halved cherry tomatoes and mix together, cook on a highest for a couple of minutes until brown. Mix together 6 eggs in a separate bowl and pour ontop of the mix, top with a generous hand full of cheese and allow to cook in the pan for a couple of minutes. Then put the mixture under the grill (take care not to melt the handle of your pan!) until the cheese in golden and the eggs are firm, season and enjoy!
