Our Spanish omelette recipe is super easy to make and completely loaded with delicious Spanish flavours. We’ll even show you how to vary the recipe to include any extras you might fancy throwing in.

A good Spanish omelette with potatoes, peppers and onions makes a really simple meat free family dinner.

Spanish potato omelettes do take a little while to make, but they’re pretty faff-free, you don’t really need to do that much hands on work. And they’re totally worth the effort!

Spanish Omelette Ingredients

  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 large onion – finely sliced
  • 1kg new potatoes – peeled and finely sliced
  • 1 red pepper – finely sliced
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tbs chopped flat leaf parsley
  • salt and black pepper to season

How to make Spanish omelette

Spanish potato omelette is really easy to make!

  • Add a splash of olive oil to a frying pan – tip in the onion, potatoes and pepper and cook over a low heat until softened, stir regularly – this will take around 40 minutes.

  • Whisk together the eggs, mix in the parsley and season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the potatoes and swirl the pan to make sure everything is evenly covered in egg.
  • When the egg starts to set, slide a spatula around the outside of the pan and draw the egg in a little. This makes it easier to turn.

  • Once the egg is completely set slide the omelette carefully onto a plate, then with one hand under the plate and the other holding the frying pan handle – put the frying pan over the omelette on the plate and flip the plate and pan over to get the omelette back into the pan so you can cook the other side.
  • Cook this side of the omelette for around 10 minutes – then flip one more time.
  • Once fully cooked, slide onto a serving board and cut into four wedges. Serve with salad and nice bread

How to serve Spanish omelette

Spanish omelette is really delicious just served with a fresh salad and some crusty bread for an easy dinner. My kids also love this served with baked beans and sausages.

If you have any left over you can slice it into wedges and eat for lunch the next day – I love it stuffed into a warm ciabatta roll with salad and a splattering of garlic mayonnaise.

You can cut Spanish omelette into little cubes and skewer onto cocktail sticks and serve with drinks as part of a delicious tapas platter.

Make Spanish Omelette your way

We’ve given you the basic Spanish omelette recipe but you can add in or take out ingredients to suit your own tastes. Try…

  • using sweet potatoes instead of ordinary white potatoes.
  • throw in a freshly chopped chilli, candied jalapeño or smoked paprika for a hit of spicy warmth.
  • try making Spanish omelette with chorizo – add some chorizo crumbs or even prawns (or both) if you fancy.
  • try making Spanish omelette with cheese – when I add cheese to this omelette I usually use feta or Manchego in little cubes and add it when I add the eggs.
