Spanish Tortilla for One or Two

Potato, bacon, and onion tortilla

Potato, bacon & onion tortilla

aka Frittata

These two dishes are kind of like a crustless quiche, without the milk or cream, and cooked on the stove top.

2 or 3 eggs, beaten
1 cup of filling (potato, cheese, meat, herbs, veggies)
salt and pepper
butter or oil for sautéing

Heat a lightly greased skillet until hot
toss in filling, heat through or cook through if necessary
add beaten eggs
season with salt and pepper
cook until bottom of egg is set
flip to cook the top (use the plate method if you don’t feel comfortable flipping free-hand)
