When I saw this recipe for Spanish Tortilla made with caramelized onions on the Seasalt with food blog I knew we had to make it.
We've made Spanish tortilla a few times. Once I remember specifically for our Spain themed supper club. But this just looked and sounded so perfect for a late breakfast on the patio that we had to make it.
First I sliced my potatoes
and then my onions.
I boiled the potato slices for about 6-8 minutes and then drained them.
The best thing about this recipe was the caramelized onion. So good and worth the wait of browning them just right. The flavor is wonderful.
I added my onions to my cast iron skillet with some olive oil.
Let them start to get brown
then even browner
and even browner
until they were just right.
Next I chopped some cilantro (on the Seasalt with food blog they used parsley..cilantro sounded better to us.)
Then I beat my eggs and added a little cream too.
Then I added the potato
and then the cilantro to the skillet.
Next went in the eggs
and the onions I scattered on top before covering the skillet to cook for 25 minutes.
It came it out beautiful.
It happened be a somewhat warm Sunday morning so we were so excited to eat our first breakfast on the patio of the season. Some bubbles were in order.
And what a treat ...the tortilla was wonderful. We added a little chipotle salsa as a topper.
The onions gave it a great flavor.
It was just right for a lazy start to the "end of the weekend" kind of day.
