When I lived in Spain 30 years ago, I learned how to make Spanish Tortilla and have made it many times since then. Now that I am back in Spain, it has been a lot of fun to make it again. Here is how I made it this time as well as the ingredients I used.
Ingredients: Eggs, potatoes, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, zucchini, garlic, tomato, salt, pepper, pork sausage links, sunflower oil, and extra virgin olive oil.
I start by browning the sausage while I cut up the vegetables.
As always, I cut up and prepare more vegetables that I need so I have them on hand for other dishes that I can make quickly. Once the sausage is done, I pull it out and cut it up into small pieces.
I sauté the vegetables in some extra virgin olive oil and butter and add some salt and pepper.
While the vegetables are cooking, I cube the potatoes. Once the vegetables are done, I pull them out and put in about 3/4 inch of sunflower oil and deep fry the potatoes.
I cook the potatoes until they are soft but not quite as much as I would if I were making French fries. When the potatoes are done I pull them out.
I whip up three eggs and then start to combine everything. I add a couple scoops of potatoes and vegetables and then I add some of the sausage (the last tortilla is mine, because it will have a lot of sausage added.)
I mix it all up and place it in a small, well-oiled skillet.
Here is a quick video to show how to flip a tortilla.
Here are some pictures of the finished product.
Of course as with any Spanish meal you have to have bread, but here is my little twist. Add some butter and olive oil in a skillet and soak the bread in the mixture and toast it in the skillet.
And of course, I had to have some olives.
These tortillas turned out really good and I have my extra vegetables to be used for other things, maybe my breakfast tomorrow.
