Tortilla Tapas

Posted by felicity Sunday, September 02, 2012

As busy parents, time is always in short supply. This recipe is quick and easy and doubles-up well as a hot evening meal with cold leftovers for the lunchbox.
Traditional tapas are made over a hob in a frying pan, but as busy parents this isn’t always practical. Popping in the oven is a much easier way of managing this without risk of it burning when you’re changing a dirty nappy!
Makes 12
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes


Glug of Olive Oil
1 Onion (thinly sliced)
3 Small Baking Potatoes (peeled and thinly sliced) – wacxy potatoes such as charlotte or jersey royals else they fall apart in the pan
2 Garlic cloves (crushed)
½ tsp paprika
Handful of fresh chopped parsley (optional – this is just for colour)
2 red, yellow or orange peppers (deseeded and thinly sliced)
6 eggs (beaten)
½ tsp fresh chilli
  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan on and add the onion and potatoes, frying for around 15 minutes until the onions and potatoes are soft
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C (180 fan) gas 6 and pop the baking tin in at the same time to preheat
  3. Add the garlic and peppers and cook for another 5 minutes
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the eggs, chilli, paprika and parsley (if using)
  5. Remove the baking tin from the oven and brush with oil.
  6. Tip the egg mixture in to the pan
  7. Pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes – press the top and if it’s still squidgy pop back in for a little longer
  8. Remove and leave to cool for 5-10 minutes before tipping it upside-down on to a board.
  9. Cut in to squares and serve hot and pop some in the fridge once cooled and in to the lunchbox
