Spanish Tortilla from the kid

This is my Aunt-Sandi-weekend-morning food. It’s also sort of my Nana food. It’s both.  The tea is totally Sandi tea, because she’s the one who always got me those.  It was green tea with pomegranate and wildflowers, and it was delicious.

For the tortilla, I caramelized the onions first, then set them aside. Then I cooked the potatoes a bit and mixed them back together. Put all that in the frying pan, put all the egg in, and then I moved it around until it was all even and cooked it on a low temperature for a long time, then broiled the top in the oven.

[Note from Serene:  “Aunt Sandi” is what The Kid calls me.  You can see more verbose cooking instructions for the tortilla at my previous post on the subject.]

  1. This looks so delicious! I wish my mum had made this sort of omelet-ish thing during my upbringing. Sadly, her cooking wasn’t up to par.

  2. Wow, that looks delicious! And that tea (and teapot) are just gorgeous. What a fantastic (and easy!) way to add a lovely visual element to your meal’s experience.

  3. Great job Kid! In my house, nothing makes me happier than watching my “kids” cook. So bravo – you cooked, you wrote, you shared (but did you clean up?). Sorry, I’m a mom – couldn’t help myself on that. It looks beautiful and definitely good enough to eat.

    I read the previous post too – love the story behind the tortilla and definitely plan to try this technique. You guys might enjoy my most recent pancake post – it’s definitely a grandma/momfood recipe. Really quite basic but oh so different and delicious just like this tortilla. Thanks to you both for sharing the stories and the recipe!

  4. It looks wonderful, your Aunt Sandy must of enjoyed it. She’s lucky to have someone like you looking after her.

  5. That is a really lovely photo! Nice position and contrast of colors.
    The spanish tortilla looks delicious as well, I really wish I could eat it right now. :(

  6. I used to eat this as a kid growing up and it strikes a special chord for me in my heart. This looks absolutely delicious and I would be happy to eat that any day! Nice photo too!

    1. Thanks! She’s starting to be quite a decent beginner cook. At first, she was afraid of failing. Now, she’s a lot braver.
