"The best thing about the authentic Spanish tortilla is its simplicity as it consists of only 4 ingredients you probably already have on hand! The tortilla is delicious hot or cold, as a tapa or as a side dish."

  • Step 3/3

    Heat the same pan to medium heat, add a little oil, and then egg-potato mixture. Smooth out and let set in the pan for about 15 – 20 min., until the eggs are almost set, but the surface is still slightly runny. Carefully flip the tortilla over using a large plate and slide it back into the pan, with the browned side facing up. Cook for another 5 min., then slide to a large plate. Slice like a cake and serve. Enjoy!
