Spanish potato omelette

2.11.2017 We all survived from my birthday party but we decided that we will just hangout at my place. We three love food, so Irene made Spanish potato omelette for us. For a Finn it was hard to understand why anyone would put potato on omelette and I was very skeptical. But for my surprise it was actually pretty good. In weird way.  Sadly I don’t have a picture of the omelette, because it broke and looked ugly.

To make this weird snack, you need eggs, precooked potatoes, onion if you like and salt. First precook your potatoes (you can boil them or just put them in microwave), chop onions and potatoes, mix them with eggs, throw some salt on. Then put whole mix to the oiled pan and let it cook. When another side is ready, flip the omelette with plate. (This was the point when our omelette broke. ) When both sides are done, just put the omelette on your plate and enjoy!

Spanish potato omelette

Last Monday, our EOTO group met at Loy’s apartment to have a Spanish dinner.

I decided to cook a potato omelette, wich is a dish that is typical in the whole Spain (I explained them that each region of Spain has it’s own typical dishes, but this one is known by all Spanish people).

We needed a place to cook, so we went to Loy’s apartment, because he lives alone, but he explained us that it was his last day there, because he had to move the next day. I went 20 minutes before to start cooking the meal, because it takes a bit of time and I didn’t want them to get bored during I cooked.

I told them the ingredients that I used, also in Spanish:

  • Potatoes = Patatas
  • Eggs = Huevos
  • Salt = Sal
  • Olive oil = Aceite de oliva


I also brought some Serrano ham that my parents brought me from Spain when they visited me last week.

Loy helped me peeling and cooking the potatoes, and he also made some chips by his own.

Kasimir, Ivan and Tomi brought Nachos with different types of sauces, and they cooked them with some cheese in the oven.

While having dinner, I explained them that in Spain we don’t eat many things at breakfast, but instead of that, we have 5 meals a day, and it’s usual to have two dishes instead of one, when having lunch and dinner.
