 Spanish Omelette Recipe Comments Page 1

We've received too many comments to include all of them on the main banana cake recipe page. So, the older ones are included on this page below.

Love this meal but never cooked it. It's not rocket science but the recipe was well written and makes sure you avoid the usual mistakes. I used tomato for moisture, added some sliced chorizo and mild chilli, but cut down on the salt - delicious. My fussy kids loved it. Just make sure you don't use a worn frying pan, then the problem of the Spanish Omelette sticking won't be a worry. Cheers.

Delicious. I'm not a huge fan of plain food and I didn't have tomatoes or peas kicking around, so I just used the egg, potato and onion with 2 teaspoons of Nando's medium peri peri sauce. Delicious, regardless of what the food purists might say!

I'm being picky, but "discard the other half of the onion"!?!?!?! Throw-away society in a nutshell. So many uses for half an onion....

Excellent - 6 eggs whisked - chop the potatoes to small cubes - part-boil potatoes until slightly soft - put into hot oil and fry till soft - drain the oil - pour over the eggs and cook slowly - flip onto plate when half cooked place back into frying pan and slowly cook the other side ..... lovely with fresh salad.

When in Spain look out for a tortilla plate. It has a knob on the base of the plate so that you can safely hold the plate on the frying pan when turning. They also display the Spanish Omelette very nicely.

OMG what IS she doing?  It might be great but the Spanish omelette is just eggs, spuds, salt and pepper, tiny bit of garlic allowed. And you must leave the potato and egg mixture to rest for at least 20 minutes before cooking.  No doubt these other admixtures are successful, but keep it plain. Adding other ingredients shortens the keeping time too. Keep it plain and try it.

Agree totally with snout_in_trough. Stop adding random ingredients to this really simple dish, for pity's sake! Someone here has even added ginger. What!? Any other ingredients mean it is no longer a traditional Spanish omelette, and you also run the risk of introducing far too much moisture into it. Also, do not add the potato and onions directly from the pan into the bowl of eggs or it will start to partly cook. The tortilla itself must have depth to it or the texture will be completely wrong; I suggest an absolute minimum of 1 inch (2.5cm), so the shape and volume of the pan you use is critical. Someone also suggested part boiling the potatoes to soften them first; this is a good idea and is exactly what my mother used to do. Last bit of advice - don't over cook it, it is nicest when it is slightly 'jugoso' where the egg hasn't completely cooked through.

ANSWER: The pan size is already specified above under the heading "Cooking Equipment". I have however added further comments below that, to stress that the size of the pan is important and why.
