Spanish Potato and Chorizo Tortilla

WED Spanish tortilla 0133 Preparation time 45 mins Serves 8 people

Ingredients

  • 500g baby white-skinned potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 chorizo sausages (250g), 1 thinly sliced and 1 very finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp mild paprika
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh chives

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C conventional/200°C fan forced.
  2. Cook potato in a large saucepan of boiling water for 3-5 minutes or until just tender. Drain. Whisk eggs and milk together in a jug. Season with pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a 5cm-deep, 22cm (base measurement) non-stick, ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, sliced chorizo and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion softens and chorizo is crisp. Add paprika and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  4. Add potato and season with salt and pepper. Stir gently to combine. Lightly press potato mixture into pan to form a slightly compact, flat top. Reduce heat to low. Pour egg mixture over potato mixture. Gently shake pan to allow egg mixture to evenly spread in pan. Cook, without stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until base and edges start to set. Transfer to oven. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until top is golden and egg is set.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the finely diced chorizo in a non-stick frying pan for 3-5 minutes or until crisp.
  6. Stand tortilla in pan for 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate. Serve scattered with chives and chorizo crumb.
