How To Make A Smoked Ham Tortilla With Chargrilled Peppers:

Preparation time:20 minutes
Cooking time:35 minutes
Total time:55 minutes
Serves: 4


3 tbsp light olive oil

500g waxy potatoes, peeled and cut into 1cm cubes

1 large onion, finely sliced

6 large free range eggs

¼ tsp smoked paprika

½ x 20g pack fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

120g pack Waitrose Brunswick Smoked Ham, sliced into small pieces

½ x 170g jar Waitrose Cooks’ Ingredients Chargrilled Peppers, drained and chopped

How To Make:

Preheat the grill to its highest setting. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan and gently fry the potatoes and onion for about 20 minutes, until golden and soft.

Whisk the eggs lightly together in a jug with the smoked paprika and the parsley.

Heat a 23cm non-stick frying pan then tip in the potato and onion mixture, followed by the ham and peppers and a little seasoning.

Pour the egg mixture over, moving the ingredients around with a fork before leaving to gently cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes until the egg is just set.

Finish cooking the tortilla under the grill for 2-3 minutes until golden. If serving cold, leave to stand in the pan then cut into wedges. Serve with some continental salad leaves.

Cook’s tips:

To make the tortilla the traditional Spanish way, cook the onion and potato in 150ml olive oil then drain off the excess. This adds a lovely sweetness to the finished dish.

Drinks recommendation:
A Pinot Noir Rose from France is perfect for a picnic and would match the sweetness of this dish beautifully.
