Spanish Style Plantain Omelette on {Latina Column}

It’s unbelievable that it’s almost been two years since I first published this post on a classic Spanish breakfast: the chunky omelette.

The post, which you can read here,  was such a hit, I had several people email me with questions for suggestions on variations of the cheese to use; and I featured it in one of my newsltters. Since then, I’ve made this ultra delicious and robust tortilla enough times to yield a farm of chickens—-that’s how many eggs I’ve used! I’ve played around with the cheeses and have determined that smoked gouda, smoked mozzarella and asiago are the best options!

For my column on LATINA this week, I decided our readers need to know about it and experience the yumminess of  this easy-to-make omelette. It will leave you  (new readers of FE) and them, wanting to practice your skillet flip and even ponder a trip to Spain!

Read today’s column and get the recipe on LATINAhere!

¡Buen Provecho!

Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.

  1. I love Spanish-style tortilla (omelette)and have a semi sweet tooth, so a tortilla de platanito maduro is hard to resist. How about posting something on a traditional tortilla with papas y cebolla (onions and potatoes)… with just a dash of cheese? Yummy!!

  4. This looks really good. I’ll have to go to the farmers market to to get some ingredients but I’m making this since I love omelette.
