Chorizo & potato tortilla Española

Chorizo & potato tortilla Española
  • Serves: 4
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 20mins


  • 6 British Lion eggs
  • Salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1 white onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 500g cooked new potatoes, cut into 5mm (approx) slices
  • 400g cooked chorizo, cut into 5mm (approx) slices


  1. In a jug, beat the eggs with some salt and pepper and set to one side.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat a little olive oil and gently fry the onions and crushed garlic until softened and starting to colour.
  3. Add a little more olive oil and add the sliced potatoes and chorizo, stirring for a few minutes to heat everything through.
  4. Spread all the ingredients evenly across the pan in a flat layer and pour over the beaten eggs, ensuring everything is covered.
  5. Cook for a few minutes until the eggs are set - you'll see the sides starting to come away from the pan.
  6. Place under a hot grill to set the top of the tortilla, or if you wish you can flip it over using the pan-plate-pan method to cook on the other side in the frying pan.
  7. Serve hot or cold with a fresh side salad.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
