How To Make ‘Egg Pizza’ (Spanish Omelette)
I’m really pleased to have been made one of Lion Eggs ‘Eggsperts’! I’m a huge advocate of the humble egg and honestly can’t think of a more perfect way to eat them then soft boiled with buttery soldiers!!!
Despite the perfection of egg and soldiers, my fellow eggsperts and I will be sharing our favourite egg recipes with you along with hints, tips and a few reviews of eggy gadgets.
This month we were challenged to create a family meal in 25 minutes (give or take). Phill and Beth have been doing most of the cooking for the last few weeks as I’ve been commuting I don’t get home until around 7pm. We’ve been treated to such delights as Roast Pork with no trimmings and sausage curry…..it’s time to work out which recipes can be made very quickly once I get home!
This recipe will take about half an hour. Most of that will be spent waiting for the potatoes to cook and you can prepare everything else while they bubble away.
Children will love this dish! We call it egg pizza as that’s what Beth’s always called it. I can see why. It looks like pizza and like pizza you can add just about anything to it. You can even make the toppings into funny faces to appeal to children…..or grown ups, whatever makes you happy. 🙂
This recipe will serve a family of four with a side salad and can be made in a very large frying pan or two smaller ones.
You Will Need:
500g new potatoes
Medium cheddar cheese
1 white onion
parma ham, salami, pastrami, peperoni, ham, chicken…..whatever you like
6 free range eggs
- Thinly slice your potatoes and boil until tender.
- While the potatoes are cooking, finely chop your onions, slice your tomatoes and tear your meats.
- Slice or grate your cheese.
- In a jug whisk your eggs and mix with a big glug (that’s a technical term) of milk (about a cupful).
- Season the eggs with a little salt, some pepper and a half teaspoon of dried oregano.
- Heat a teaspoonful of olive oil and once your potatoes are tender, add them to the pan
- Cook for a minute or two and then add the onions. Don’t stir, but allow to cook for another minute.
- Pour the egg over the potatoes and onions.
- Add the tomatoes and meats.
- Allow to cook until the edges of the omelette start to come away from the pan.
- Spread the cheese over the top and then place under the grill.
- Cook until the cheese melts and the egg is set.
- Serve straight away 🙂
