How do you make an authentic Spanish tortilla as a snack?

Learn how to make an authentic Spanish tortilla as a snack with this step-by-step guide. An indispensable recipe for the tastiest drinks!


Gather ingredients

Gather the necessary ingredients: potatoes, eggs, onions and olive oil. Start by collecting four medium potatoes. Peel them and cut them into small cubes. You also need four eggs. Boil these in a pan until they are hard-boiled and then cut them into slices. Also collect two onions and chop them finely.

Make sure you also have olive oil on hand. Heat a pan over medium heat and add a dash of olive oil. You are now ready to start cooking!


Prepare potatoes and onions

Peel the potatoes and onions. Cut them into thin slices. Make sure the slices are the same thickness so that they cook evenly during the cooking process. Use a sharp knife to make cutting easier and watch your fingers to avoid injuries. Once all the potatoes and onions have been chopped, they can be prepared according to the recipe you are following. Good luck preparing your potatoes and onions!


Fry potatoes and onions

  • Cut the potatoes and onions into thin slices.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the sliced potatoes and onions to the pan.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Check the potatoes by poking them with a fork – they should be soft without too much resistance.
  • When they are done, serve the fried potatoes and onions immediately. Enjoy your meal!

Beat eggs

Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste. Stir well until everything is well mixed. Make sure the mixture is smooth and that the salt and pepper are evenly distributed. Use a whisk or fork to beat the eggs until no chunks of egg white are visible. This way you get a light and tasty egg mixture that is ready to use in your recipe.


Add potatoes and onions

Add the fried potatoes and onions to the bowl with the beaten eggs. Make sure the potatoes and onions are evenly distributed over the egg mixture for a delicious frittata. Stir gently with a spatula to combine everything well and let the mixture rest for a few minutes to allow the flavors to blend. You can choose to add some extra herbs or cheese for extra flavor. For example, think of fresh herbs such as parsley or chives, or grated cheese such as Parmesan or cheddar.

Fry the mixture over low heat in a greased frying pan until the bottom is lightly browned and the top is almost firm. Use a lid to cook the top of the frittata. Turn the frittata over using a large plate and fry the other side briefly. Serve the frittata warm as a main course with a fresh salad or enjoy it as part of a brunch. Try this recipe yourself and experiment with different additions to give your own unique twist to the frittata!


Mix and bake

Mix everything together well. Make sure all ingredients are well mixed so that the flavors spread well. Then pour the mixture into a pan that you have first heated with a little oil. Fry the tortilla on both sides over medium heat until golden brown and crispy. Carefully turn the tortilla over using a spatula and fry the other side until it is also nicely golden brown. Serve the tortilla warm and enjoy your homemade delicacy!


To serve

Let the tortilla cool briefly after removing it from the pan. Then cut it into wedges with a sharp knife. Place the cut tortilla points on a nice serving plate and make sure you arrange them neatly. You can then serve the tortilla as a delicious snack or as a tasty side dish with a main meal. Enjoy it!
