|Stovetop Spanish Frittata|
“Spanish Frittata” are basically Spanish omelette made with eggs, raw potatoes and onions but you may add or reduce ingredients as per choice. The original recipe calls for a thinly sliced raw potatoes which are fried in olive oil till slightly cooked along with onions and then cooked with egg mixture over stove-top and then kept in oven for a flaky crust.
Now I wanted to make a slightly easier and healthier version of this using ingredients as per my choice hence please feel free to experiment and use veggies/meats of your choice.
They are perfect with warm/fresh bread or can be sliced like pizza and served individually.
Here’s the recipe enjoy:

availability (Please add this
ingredient as per taste)
- In a bowl, whisk
egg and milk together till they form a frothy consistency (This takes 2min).
- Add all the above
ingredients to this frothy mixture(except
oil and breadcrumbs) and mix everything together.
- Heat a non-stick
skillet till its medium hot, pour 1 tbsp oil and reduce the heat to low.
- Now pour the mixture
on the skillet and let it settle for 1min. (You don’t want the skillet to be very hot as it may result in cooking
the base too quickly leaving the center of frittata uncooked)
- Spread the breadcrumbs
evenly over the mixture and let it cook for 2min on medium.
- Now swirl the
skillet to check if frittata is cooked (The
egg mixture would have become thicker and look almost cooked)
- Using the spatula,
flip the frittata carefully, add 1tbsp of oil and let it cook on the other side
for 2-3min. (This side has breadcrumbs hence it will
take slightly longer to cook and create the crust)
- After 3mins, switch off the heat (Check on both side’s to see if the frittata
is evenly cooked. Every stovetop is different hence it may take slightly more/less
to cook hence always keep an eye while making this dish)
- Now transfer to a
serving dish and serve hot.
