- Peel and cut the potatoes in thin slices. Add salt to them.
- In a deep pan, put 1 litre of olive oil. When it’s hot enough, pour the potatoes and fried them until they start being gold (the right colour is light yellow with some brown borders, nearly crunchy).
- In a strainer, put the fried potatoes to remove the excess oil. In a salad bowl whip the eggs. Add the fried potatoes to the whipped eggs and make sure the fried potatoes and eggs get well mixed.
- In a 24cms. pan, add a little spurt of olive oil. When warm enough, add the mixing eggs and fried potatoes. Shake the pan to avoid they get burnt. About 2 mins.
- Here is a tip. Grab a plate slightly larger than the pan, place it over the pan. With one hand on the handle of the pan and one hand holding the plate, flip the pan so that the non-cooked part is in the bottom of the dish. Dump the pan. Once the omelette is on the plate, gently slide it into the pan to brown the other side. About two more minutes and you will have your Spanish omelette ready to serve.
