Packed with hunger-fighting potatoes, this Spanish specialty is oh-so-much more than an ordinary omelet.

Ingredients

uncooked potato(es)

3 medium, baking variety, peeled, thinly sliced (use a food processor if possible)

egg(s)

3 large

egg white(s)

3 item(s)

table salt

tsp

black pepper

pinch

canola oil

1½ Tbsp

uncooked onion(s)

1 medium, chopped

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook for 5 minutes (potatoes should be about halfway done). Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper together in a large bowl; set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a 10-inch frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onions and potatoes; cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Spoon potato mixture into egg mixture and mix thoroughly.
  5. Reheat frying pan over low-medium heat. Add potato-egg mixture and let cook for 2 minutes. Flip and cook on other side until eggs are set, about 2 minutes more. Slice into 6 pieces and serve.

Notes

If you have trouble flipping the eggs, slide them onto a plate, turn the plate over – above pan – and settle eggs back into pan.
