With the weekend approaching, you might be in the mood to try a new recipe. May we suggest Spanish Potato Omelet with Roasted Peppers? This dish works great as the main course or an appetizer serving up to eight people.
- A pound or 4 3/4 ounces of hot green peppers
- Eight large, lightly beaten eggs
- Two pounds of russet potatoes peeled and cut into slices of ¼ inch
- Two cups of olive oil
- A pound of yellow onions cut into rings of ½ inch
- Two teaspoons of salt
Use a burner, grill, or broiler to roast the peppers until they’re entirely blistered and charred. Once that’s done, immediately place them in a paper bag, making sure to close it tightly so that the steam makes the skin loose. Once the peppers can be handled safely, remove the skin. Follow by stemming, seeding, deveining, and cutting the peppers into squares of one inch.
Grab a medium bowl and place the onions and potatoes inside before adding salt, making sure to coat them well. Use a nonstick skillet to warm the oil over medium-high heat. Once it begins to ripple, add the onion and potatoes. Turn down the heat to medium, cover and cook, making sure to occasionally stir until the potatoes are fork tender and the onions have become translucent and soft. The process should take about twenty minutes. Once this is done, add the peppers and cook for about five minutes. Drain the mixture but make sure to put aside two tablespoons of the oil.
Move the vegetables over to a large bowl and add the eggs before gently stirring everything so that the potatoes don’t break up.
Using the oil you set aside, pour it into the skillet over medium-high heat before adding the egg mixture. Cook until the egg has set and separated entirely from the pan sides, it should take about three minutes. Use a spatula to lift the tortilla and check the bottom to make sure it is golden. Carefully flip the tortilla over and repeat for the other side.
