How to Cook a Basic Spanish Omelette

by Bea Tomas

Super easy, super fast and you can add differ the ingredients every time you make it


  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt
  • Olive oil or sunflower oil
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Peel and cut the potatoes in small cubes. The number of potatoes depends on how big the omelette is. This is for one person. Bigger omelette = more potatoes and eggs

    Step 2

    Start cooking the cubes in the oil. You can add salt to the raw potatoes but I tend to put it with the eggs

    Step 3

    Whisk the 2 eggs. Here you can add the salt, the amount depends on your taste. You can add here ingredients that don't need cooking, like tuna or chorizo

    Step 4

    When the potatoes are cooked, add them to the eggs and mix everything well

    Step 5

    Add the mixture to an oiled pan. I just put a bit of oil and spread with a paper towel. This pan is a great size for a one person omelette

    Step 6

    Cook Until you see the egg is done, put the plate on and then hold it tight when you flip the pan

    Step 7

    Return the omelette to the pan to cook the other side. It will take a lot less to cook

    Step 8

    All done! You can add onion, green peppers, chorizo... Onions and peppers need to be cooked with the potatoes
