To Serve as a Main Course: Slice it into 6-8 pieces like a pie. Serve sliced French bread on the side.

To Serve as a Tapa: Slice a baguette into pieces about 1/2-inch thick. Cut the tortilla into 1 1/2-inch; squares and place each piece on top of a slice of bread.

The tortilla is simply delicious served with sofrito, fried tomato sauce that is made all over Spain. It's easy to make - saute tomatoes, onions, garlic, green peppers and olive oil in a frying pan.

Variations

The following are a few of the most popular variations to the classic Spanish Omelet.

  • Green Pepper - Add 1 green or red bell pepper (chopped) to the potatoes and onions and fry.
  • Chorizo - Slice a Spanish chorizo sausage and add to the potato and onion mixture after frying.

  • Ham - Using a couple thick slices (1/4") ham, finely chop them. Then add the pieces to the potato and onion mixture after frying. Canadian bacon or smoked ham that you buy in a deli work well for this variation. Be careful to adjust the salt accordingly, since ham may be salty!
