1.Heat the olive oil
in a frying pan, add the onion and potatoes and fry for 8 minutes, turning the veg frequently until tender but not browned. Add the bacon
and fry for a further 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a bowl
with salt and pepper. Stir in the cheese.
2.Remove the potato
mixture with a slotted spoon and stir into the eggs. Reserve most of the excess
oil, leaving a little in the pan. Pour in the egg mixture and leave to cook
undisturbed over a gentle heat for 8 minutes until firmly set underneath but
not set on top.
3.Invert the tortilla on to a plate and
return the pan to the heat with a bit more of the reserved oil. Slide the
tortilla back into the pan, uncooked side down, and cook for 5 minutes until
set all through.
4.Serve with salad.
I always like tortilla when we have it in Spanish restaurants......so don't know why I haven't cooked it before......maybe because DD1 won't eat onions.......and seeing her disapproving face as she picks out every piece....is not conducive to an enjoyable meal.......so in this one I just substituted spring onions [which she does eat]......and she declared it delicious.
Again I didn't actually weight the ingredients.....and used less potatoes and 4 eggs for the two of us.
I managed to take a rubbish photo.....so this is what it looked like on the Good Food website which is where I found the recipe........and there's hundreds of other recipes there as well.
