Tortilla/Fritatas are awesome! Here's how I make it:
An ovenproof skillet
Peeled and sliced potato, enough to cover the bottom of your skillet without overlapping.
thinly sliced large onion
6 beaten eggs
salt and pepper
Brown thinly sliced potatoes in olive oil, then remove them into a large bowl. Cook onion in some more olive oil until they're golden. Put the onions into the bowl with the potatoes and mix them, adding salt and pepper to taste. Return the mixed potato/onion to the skillet, heat the skillet on low heat, and add the beaten eggs. Mix gently and make sure the egg covers the entire mixture. Cook over low heat until the eggs begin to set and the edge bubbles a bit. Heat under the broiler until the top is browned and the eggs are completely cooked and set.
Fritata makes an excellent meal with a green salad and some wine.
