Bacon, Pea and Potato Omelette

Using some left over new potatoes from my Easter meal I made this tasty Spanish style tortilla/ omelette. The bacon used in here makes a nice smoky flavour, and the peas brighten it up nicely.

  • ~8 new potatoes - boiled and cooled, and sliced thinly
  • 1/2 onion - chopped
  • 2 rashers smoky bacon - chopped into little bits
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 nob butter
  • 4 eggs - beaten
  • 1 handful frozen peas
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cheese for grating on top
Heat a large heavy based frying pan and melt the butter with the olive oil. Fry the onion and bacon until the onion is soft and the bacon cooked.

Add the peas in and stir around until warmed through. Place the sliced potatoes carefully in the pan and gently turn over so that they are mixed evenly with the peas, bacon and onions.

Now beat the eggs with a bit of salt and pepper. Make sure the pan is nice and hot, and pour the beaten eggs over the whole lot. Reduce the heat.

Allow to cook through, using a spatula to gently ease the omelette away from the pan edges. Sprinkle cheese on the top. Finish off under the grill.

This is nice with a bit of sweet chilli sauce or ketchup.
