I wanted something fairly quick and easy to make for dinner after a long and busy day and a baked Spanish tortilla sounded good. I grabbed some eggs out of the refrigerator along with a couple of Yukon gold potatoes, bacon, sweet yellow onion, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, and sharp cheddar. This baked Spanish tortilla was easy to throw together and smelled heavenly while it baked. My kids thought it was tasty and my husband and I both thought it was excellent.
How to Make a Baked Spanish Tortilla with Potato, Bacon, Onion, Mushroom, Tomato, Spinach, and Sharp Cheddar
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Heat the olive oil in an OVEN PROOF pan over medium heat. Add the bacon slices and cook, flipping when needed, to cook the bacon until crisp. Remove from the pan and place on paper towels to drain. Chop into crumbles. Remove all but 1 tbsp bacon grease from the pan. Add the onion, mushrooms, and potato slices to the hot skillet. Season with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Cook, stirring gently and often, for 12-15 minutes, or until tender and golden brown. Add the tomatoes, spinach, and crumbled bacon then add the egg mixture along with the sharp cheddar cheese. Season the top with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
Place into the oven and bake for 12 minutes or until light and fluffy. Don’t overcook. Remove from the oven then slice and serve. Enjoy!
