      Title: Tortilla espanola (spanish omelet)
 Categories: Eggs, Spanish
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      4 tb Olive oil
      2 lg Onions; peeled & cut
           -into thin slices
      2 lb Potatoes, peeled & cut
           -into thin slices
      6    Eggs
           Salt; to taste
           Pepper; to taste
 
  Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan.  Saute the onions over
  medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until soft but not brown. Drain the
  onions in a colander, reserving 2 tablespoons of the oil from the pan.
  
  Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 4 to 5 minutes and drain in the
  colander.  Beat the eggs in a large bowl and stir in the onions and
  potatoes; add salt and pepper to taste.
  
  Heat the reserved oil over high heat in a heavy nonstick pan or a
  well- seasoned cast iron skillet. Add the egg mixture and cook for 2
  minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned. Place the pan in a
  preheated 400-degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the egg
  mixture is set. Invert the tortilla onto a round platter. Cut into
  wedge-shaped slices and serve with a salad.
  
  NOTE:  In Spain, a tortilla isn't the cornmeal flat bread we think
  of, but a sort of omelet loaded with onions and peppers. This is a
  popular item at tapas bars, and an easy dinner to make after an
  evening of celebrating.
