    Here’s my contribution to the food subforum, since I like cooking. This is my personal recipe.


    Spanish omelet (Tortilla de patata – Potato omelet [literal]), for 2-4 people.



    – 3 potatoes (600 g)

    – 6 eggs

    – 1 small onion

    – 1 little spoon of salt (adapt to taste)

    – 1 little spoon of sugar (optional)

    – a little bit of fine-grained garlic (optional – to taste)


    First we cut the peeled potatoes (and onions) in small pieces and fry the pieces with sufficient oil (best with olive oil). We need to stirr a lot since we don’t want the pieces to over fry, we want them yellow. Add the onion pieces, stir, the salt, stir, and sugar by that order. When they are fried to the point when they are no longer hard (they can be easily torn apart with a fork), remove the pieces from the oil and put them in a new pan, plate or plate.


    While the potatoes were frying, you can start opening and stirring your eggs.


    in the new pan, plate or bowl, spill the raw egg fluid over the potatoes. Mix them. The egg fluid must cover the entire potato mass, otherwise it wil be a mess of an omelet. Don’t be afraid to open another egg, stir it and add it to the potatoes.


    Put a pan at medium fire. When it is warm, add the mixture. You don’t need new oil because it will be enough with the oil absoved by the potatoes that remains in the mixture. The warmed pan base makes a solid base for the omelet. When that is done (watch for overfry) you need to reverse the omelet. This is tricky and maybe you need another pan, I can’t tell you how to do it. After the reverse side of the omelet is done, you can adjust your time for it to fry a litle more, so that you can adjust the level of “bloodiness” or “rawness” of the omelet. I prefer it completely solid (more time frying).


    The more thickness you achieve, the more expert you become.


    Hope you enjoy.
