|41 min.||3 min.||33 min.||1 hour 17 min.|
|1||Prepare 1 onion.
Crush 1 garlic clove with knife blade.
|2||Cut 2 slices smoked ham into thin strips.||3 min.|
|3||Peel and wash 1 kg potatoes.
Slice, wash again, drain and dry in a cloth.
|4||Pour 1 glass olive oil into a large pan, to give ½ cm ( ¼ inch) in the bottom. This seems a lot, but don't worry it's fine.
When oil is hot, add potaoes and garlic, salt and mix to distribute oil over potatoes.
|5||Cook covered, stirring from time to time, until potatoes are just soft (about 25 minutes).||25 min.|
Add onion and ham, mix well and leave to cook, uncovered, for 5 more minutes.
|7||It doesn't matter, whatever many other recipes might say, if potatoes are browned, on the contrary it's even better.|
|8||Tip potaoes + onion and ham into a strainer to drain off excess olive oil.||3 min.|
|9||Meanwhile, break 6 eggs, salt amd pepper, then beat with a whisk.||5 min.|
|10||Add potatoes and mix.||3 min.|
|11||Put a frying pan on medium heat, pour in 4 tablespoons olive oil saved from cooking potatoes.
When oil is hot, add potato-egg mixture, then with a wooden spatula, scrape bottom of pan to help eggs cook.
Do this until only a little liquid egg remains.
|12||Turn down heat, cover and leave to cook for 3 minutes.||3 min.|
|13||Your tortilla is almost cooked now, and should be turned over.|
|14||Using an oven glove to protect your hand, press firmly on lid and with a smart gesture turn upside down.
Tortilla is now on the lid .
Tip: if the inside of your lid is not smooth, line with aluminium foil. By the way, if you can manage this, you're ready for a tart tatin.
|15||Slide tortilla back into pan, and leave to stand for 2 or 3 minutes off the heat to just cook the bottom.||3 min.|
|16||Serve cut into wedges like a tart, hot or cold, if possible with a green salad and French dressing (vinaigrette).|
