The Spanish tortilla, or tortilla española, is a delicious egg omelet filled with various meats, vegetables, cheeses or herbs, and can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Here, nine fantastic tortilla recipes to try:
1. Tortilla Española
Tortilla española exists in almost every corner of Spain: as a tapa in fancy city restaurants; as a filling for bocadillos (sandwiches) at gas-station cafés; as a main course served on worn metal plates in home kitchens. Mario Batali's version, based on one he tasted in the Ribera del Duero wine region, is baked until golden brown and offers an especially high ratio of potatoes to eggs.
2. Mushroom Tortilla
This Spanish mushroom omelet from chef José Andrés is supersimple and a great make-ahead dish for brunch.
