Tortilla Espagnole is a baked egg dish that can have a variety of add-ins from kale to tomatoes to squash, but it always includes crispy potatoes- the best!

Spinach and Garlic Tortilla Espagnole

 ½ cup plus 2 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 1 ½ lbs Yukon Gold potatoes (or any waxy potato), cut into a medium dice
 1 large Spanish onion, diced
 3 garlic cloves, minced
 10 eggs, whisked
 2 tsp kosher salt
 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
 2 cups baby spinach or 1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained

Preheat oven to 400˚F.


Heat one third cup of EVOO in a skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes and onion and cook until potatoes are soft and tender with slightly crispy exterior (about 10 minutes). You may need to do this in batches, depending on pan size. Add garlic and continue cooking 2 minutes more until the garlic is fragrant and slightly softened, but not browned. Transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl.


Heat 2 tbsp EVOO in your omlette pan, or use the same pan and drain all but 2 tbsp of EVO out of it, over low heat.


Add whisked eggs to the pan with salt, pepper, spinach, and potato-onion mixture.


Transfer the pan to preheated oven and bake about 400˚F for 5-7 minutes until eggs are barely set. Allow to cool for a few minutes in the pan before inverting on a serving platter.


Place a large platter over the skillet and invert the tortilla onto the place. Serve warm or cold with salad and bread for the perfect light dinner, lunch, or brunch.
