Spanish Tortilla

My summer food craving has finally kicked in since the sun has been shining (a bit). Therefore this week Mr D and I have had a couple of evenings where we've enjoyed a tapas style supper or as I used to call it when younger 'picky-bits'. 

Since our gastronomic start to the month we've been on a bit of a spend thrift and therefore this evening I decided to cook Spanish tortilla. Super cheap, filling and easy to cook. It's also perfect cold for left over lunches.
serves 2/3

You will need:

Small oven safe frying pan
500g baby new potatoes sliced thinly skin left on or off
6 medium sized eggs
4 spring onions chopped into small rounds incl. the green tops
1 red pepper finely chopped seeds removed
Knob of butter

Heat your butter in the frying pan over a low heat for 10-15 minutes until browning, add the peppers and spring onions, and cook on low again for a further 5 mins. 

Put your sliced potatoes into a steamer over boiling water and steam until soft (approx 10mins). If you don't have a steamer simmer gently in a saucepan of water until cooked through then drain well. 

Beat your eggs in a bowl and season well. 

Heat your grill on high.

Add the potatoes to the frying pan and make them into an even layer. Pour your egg mixture into the pan and cook for around 12 minutes, on a medium-low heat, until it starts to brown underneath (be careful not to break it when lifting up). 

Put the pan under the grill and cook for a further 3 minutes. Turn it out onto a plate...

Serve with a green salad or as we did with a tapas style mix of foods... yum!
