A classic dish of the Spanish cuisine is the Tortilla. It does not require much time an needs just very few ingredients.
I like the flavor of fried potatoes and onions in combination with eggs. The Spanish like using lots of oil to fry this dish, I personally prefer to use a non stick pan and less oil.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

difficulty easy


  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 4 eggs
  • some olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Peel and cube the potatoes. Fry the cubes in a pan with some oil until golden brown. This takes 10 to 15 minutes. Flip the cubes occasional in order to fry them form all sides. After 10 minutes add the chopped onions and fry them for another 5 minutes.

add the eggs to a bowl, season and beat them. Add the potato and onion and mix. Now pour the mix into the pan and let it fry on low heat for 5 minutes. Flip once, then serve.
