Spanish-Style Tortilla with Dubliner Cheese – ad

This Spanish-Style Tortilla is a hearty winter warming dish perfect for a family supper. If you're lucky enough to have leftovers, it tastes even better cold the next day in a packed lunch for school.

Remember to get the kids to help you make this. Young kids can whisk the eggs and mix in the cheese, spring onion and seasoning and wash the potatoes while older ones can carefully grate the cheese and maybe even help stirring with your guidance.
