You may find it in most of restaurants and it`s called “tortilla de patatas” (tortilla with potato). It is big soft omelette with potato and onion. This is one of traditional dishes of Spanish cuisine. Locals eat it for breakfast and as a snack. They may also add other veggies into this dish. It may be also cooked with seafood or meat. One more popular idea is to combine several omelettes with different fillings and supplement everything with yummy sauces. Today we`ll share with you the recipe of classical tortilla with rosemary.
