Spanish omlette?

fritata (Spanish omelette)

Potato/cheese gnocci with fricassed courgette ribbons on chilli scented foam

some holladaise sauce and then some poached merigues in chilli essence?

That's what I would do


I would do Tortilla :-)

Spicy spanish omelette.

Peel and slice the potatoes thinly, fry in olive oil until they are soft. Add a thinly sliced onion halfway through if you have one, then add the chopped chillis. Beat the eggs and leave the veg to stand in the egg mixture for 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper.

Meanwhile fry the courgettes until golden brown. Add the egg/potato mixture and flatten out the potatoes a bit. Cook on a medium heat until the bottom is done then stick under the grill until the top is done. Add some cheese before grilling if you like. Leave 5 minutes then slice and serve.

I would use about 600g potatoes to 6 eggs by the way.

How many would the 600g pot version feed? I have 2 adults, 2 children... one of which is off his food

Well we just eat it with salad and it fills us to bursting point - 2 adults and one toddler. You could make it 900g and 9 eggs if you have them. You'd need a big frying pan though!
