Spanish Tortilla Omelette, Yorkshire Style

Need a quick lunch with ingredients to hand! then try my version of a Spanish omelette or maybe we should call it a Mediterranean or even Yorkshire omelette as this version contains no potato which is normally an essential in a Spanish Tortilla.

Ingredients on hand, please fee free to add sliced cooked potato, mushrooms, ham, sliced sausage whatever you have in the fridge:-

  • 1 red & 1 green pepper
  • 1 green chilli
  • 1/2 large red onion
  • chopped fresh tomato
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • sliced chorizo
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • 7 fresh free range eggs
  • splash of milk
  • oil to cook, I used a glug of rapeseed oil


  1. use a large non stick frying pan
  2. soften the onions in a little rapeseed oil, add crushed garlic
  3. then add the sliced peppers and soften a little more
  4. add the chorizo & tomato
  5. mix the eggs and a splash of milk with seasoning to taste
  6. pour egg mixture over the contents of the pan
  7. omelette will start to set, if necessary transfer to oven or grill to finish
  8. use a spatula to gently ease around the edges of the omelette then turn over contents onto a serving plate or bread board
  9. eat immediately with a few hunks of fresh bread
