Method

  1. Start by frying: Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Empty the potatoes into the pan, spread them out to cover the base, then fry for 5 minutes. Pour in the beaten eggs so they completely cover the potatoes, season well and leave the tortilla to cook on a medium heat for about 15-20 minutes, or until the base and edges have set.
  2. Grill to finish: Take the tortilla off the hob and place under a hot grill until the top is firm, then remove from the grill and scatter over the tomatoes and mozzarella. Put the tortilla back under the grill for a further 3-5 minutes, or until the tomatoes are soft and the cheese has melted. To serve, cut into thick wedges.

I roasted my potatoes with a bit of paprika and basil, delicious, very easy, and hardly any washing up. I would definitely make this again

I roasted my potatoes with garlic, rosemary & thyme and kept the herbs in with the other ingredients. Made it very tasty. Kids love it

I halved the amount and it worked fine, but I thought it was a bit bland; maybe a different cheese would have more flavour?

As there were just two of us I only used 6 eggs and 600g potatoes and it worked great.
