Cheese and Potato Tortilla recipe

A tortilla is a traditional Spanish dish thatís like a big, baked omelette. You can use lots of different fillings in tortillas, and this one uses cheese and potato.


  • 6 eggs
  • 225g potatoes, cooked and cooled
  • 100g grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp. fresh sage
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter

Method of Preparation:

  1. Whisk the eggs along with some salt and pepper and then mix in the cheddar cheese. Finely chop the sage and then mix this in, too.

  2. Meanwhile, thinly slice the potatoes. Heat some butter in a pan and add the potatoes. Fry them for five minutes or so and then add the egg mixture. Cook it on a very low heat for ten minutes until itís almost set, and then pop it under a hot grill to finish cooking.

  3. Allow it to cool and then slice it into wedges.

Try making this with peppers and mushrooms for a different take on the dish. This tortilla will serve four people.
