Omelets are ‘The Best’ when you want to eat, something tasty, healthy and which is quick to make too. I have made Omelets many times and with many different combinations, but so far, Spanish Omelet or shall I say Tortilla is the best, that I have tasted.

It’s mostly known as Tortilla, and in English as Spanish Omelet, just to avoid confusion with the normal Egg Omelet.

Spanish Tortilla is made with Potatoes and Eggs. Onions are a modern addition to this traditional Spanish dish. What makes it stand out from the rest, is its juicy taste, which was missing in normal Omelet.
