- While I was in Spain one of my favorite "tapa" was the "torilla espanola con pan de tomate" or spanish omelette with tomato bread. I was obsessed with it. It's so simple yet so delicious. I couldn't get enough! Pair this will a pitcher of homemade Sangria and you have my heaven. This recipe is so easy to make and you'll be glad you did. Preheat your oven to 375*F. First thing you want to do is cut the potatoes. Peel them, cut them in half lengthwise, and the thinly slice them. Cut the onions the same way. Put in a bowl and mix in salt, pepper, and the fresh thyme. In a large heavy non stick skillet over medium high heat put about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in and cook the potatoes. The potatoes will take about 15 minutes, stirring often so they won't stick to the pan. Once you can easily put a knife through the potatoes you know they're done! Let cool slightly. In the same bowl as before whisk together the eggs and then put in your potatoes. Mix together so all the potatoes are covered with the egg. In a 9 or 10 inch pan on medium high heat put two tablespoons of olive oil in and let heat up. Add the mixture to the hot skillet and let cook until the bottom is slightly brown on one side, about 10-15 minutes. Put in the oven to let finish cooking through, about 10 more minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool slightly. Turn the oven on broil. Put the sliced baguette on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Put in the oven and let cook until slightly brown on the top. Make sure you watch it... it burns easily! Once the baguette is browned take out of the oven and rub with a whole garlic clove. After you rub it with the garlic cut a tomato in half and rub all over the bread. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Once the omelette has cooled slightly place a serving platter upside down on the skillet. Carefully turn over the plate and frying pan and the omelette will fall onto the plate. Serve with the tomato bread! You'll have the most delicious tapa ever! Enjoy!!

Fantastic! Looks so good!
It’s called Spanish tortilla. Yummie!
It’s not what I was expecting but looked really good. I bet it would be nice with some sour cream and chives.
yes, that’s what they call a Tortilla in Spain…
