Potato tortilla

Potato tortilla

Potato tortillas are a staple of Spanish/Mexican cuisine- partly because they are so easy to make! This recipe uses mature cheddar for a delicious cheesy flavour.


  • 450g (1lb) potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 10ml (2tsp) dried mixed herbs
  • 50g (2oz) mature Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salad and olives, to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C, 350°F, Gas 4. Grease a 19 x 23cm (71/2 x 9in) cake tin.
  • Cook the potatoes in a large pan of boiling salted water for 3-4 mins. Drain well and arrange in the cake tin.
  • Beat together the eggs, garlic, mixed herbs and two-thirds of the cheese. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and pour the seasoned mixture over the potatoes.
  • Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese. Bake for 20-25 mins until golden brown and firm to the touch. Cool for 10 mins, then cut into wedges. Serve warm or cold with salad and olives.
