  • 3 tbsp. olive oil

  • 3 large potatoes peeled and sliced thinly, lengthwise


  • In a large pan, over medium-high heat, sauté onions in olive oil until translucent.
  • Add potatoes and sauté gently until soft.
  • Add eggs and allow to cook, 5-7 minutes, loosening the omelet from the pan with a spatula.
  • When the omelet is browned on one side, place a plate, larger than the pan, over the pan, and flip!
  • Slide the omelet back into the pan on its opposite side and cook until browned.
  • Cut omelette into wedges to serve.


  • This will serve 6 as an appetizer or 4 as a main dish.
  • Cut the Spanish Omelette into 1-½ to 2-inch chunks and serve on toothpicks as an appetizer.
