Made using La Española Olive Oil

This humble potato omelette is made from just a few simple ingredients. It is perfect for brunch, or a light dinner, served with nothing more than a salad or couple of slices of fresh bread.

Serves 4

Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes

4 small to medium potatoes
1 medium onion
50 ml of La Española extra virgin olive oil (for frying)
4 eggs
45 ml La Española truffle oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

To Garnish:
300 g mushrooms
2 tbsp freshly chopped flat- leaf parsley

*You will need TWO PANS for this recipe. A large frying pan with a lid for the potatoes and
onions. A smaller frying pan to make the finished omelette.

Step 1: Peel and finely slice the potatoes and onion (to approx 2mm thick). Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and when it’s quite hot add the potatoes and onions. Pop on a lid and let them cook really slowly until they start to caramelise.

Step 2: Beat the eggs in a large bowl. When the potatoes and onions are softened remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and add them to the eggs. Stir and leave to stand for 5 minutes so the flavours combine. Add the La Española truffle oil and stir.

Step 3: Re-use a couple of tablespoons of La Española extra virgin olive oil and heat in the smaller frying pan. Pour the egg-potato mixture in and cook over a really low heat for 10 minutes without stirring. Peel the edges of the omelette, remove the pan from the heat and place a shallow plate on top as a lid (the plate should be larger than the pan). In one quick motion, flip the omelette over and return it to the pan. Cook for a further 15 minutes and it is ready.

Step 4: Clean and chop the mushrooms and sauté over low heat with the parsley until soft. Serve with the omelette and drizzle over with a little truffle oil to add that finishing touch.
