Method

  1. Tip the spinach into a large colander and bring a kettleful of water to the boil. Slowly pour the water over the spinach until wilted, then cool under cold water. Squeeze all the liquid out of the spinach and set aside.

  2. Heat grill to high. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and gently cook the onion and potato for about 10 mins until the potato is soft. While the onion is cooking, beat the eggs together in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Stir the spinach into the potatoes, then pour in the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, until nearly set, then flash the omelette under the grill to set the top. Ease the omelette on to a plate, then flip over back into the pan. Finish cooking the omelette on the underside and turn out onto a board. Serve cut into wedges.

I have been making tortilla for over 50 years. Use anything you choose though do parboil the potatoes, no matter how fine you have sliced them. Nothing will ruin an omelette more than uncooked spuds.

i always have lots of eggs from a friend on a farm. this is definitely a good way to use up some more, perhaps i will add tomatoes instead of spinach as i have none in and fancy this for tonights dinner

this was wondeful and a great way of getting rid of any leftover stuff - add tuna, bits of tomato, peas etc - to me it always tastes better cold - am doing for a fingerfood for golden wedding bash so will cook till solidish and then cool and cut into small squares

This didn't knock my socks off but i think i've always found spanish omlette a bit bland. I only did this because i had loads of spinach to use up. Definitely parboil the potatoes or at least fry them on their own for a bit before adding the onion because mine burnt. I like the idea of adding chorizo and might do that if i do this again.

Hi, does anyone know how long this would last for? I'm only cooking for one!

if you like it, I suggested taste the spinach's omelette without the potatoes but with raisins and pine nuts! (put it in the oil before the spinachs and the eggs ! http://paamboliisucre.blogspot.com/

Really tasty. In the unlikely event you have any left it is just as good cold the next day.
