September 29, 2017

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.

Ingredients

A splash of olive oil

6 eggs

one large white onion, thinly sliced

2 spring onions thinly sliced

60g Dubliner Original cheese white - grated - plus extra for sprinkling

New potatoes x 4 small

Chorizo, roughly chopped

A couple of handfuls of spinach

salt and black pepper

Directions

Boil potatoes until almost cooked through, drain and leave to the side and roughly slice when cool enough

Preheat grill to hot

Whisk eggs in a bowl and mix in the 60g of Dubliner Original cheese, spring onions and a little salt and pepper

Using a medium-sized frying pan with heat proof handle, cook the white onions over a medium to high heat until starting to brown

Add in the chorizo and cook through for a few minutes before adding the potatoes

Cook for a few minutes, the potatoes will take on some colour from the chorizo

Throw in spinach until just beginning to wilt

Fold egg mixture into the frying pan

Turn down heat and cook for a few minutes allowing eggs to cook through from bottom up until they are not quite cooked through on top

Sprinkle remaining Dubliner Original cheese on top and place under hot grill for a few minutes until browned on top and the eggs are cooked through

Remove from grill and leave to stand in frying pan for 5-10 minutes before turning the tortilla out onto a serving plate or board

Serve with salad or green vegetables

This is a great dish for using up whatever leftovers you have in the kitchen. It works equally well with cooked chicken, peppers or broccolli. We sometimes like to add in some diced chilli for a kick.
It's easy to make this a vegetarian dish too, just remember to add in some smoked paprika to give the tortilla that Spanish-style flavour.
