Things I have been cooking lately #162: Chorizo and spring onion Spanish omelette

I decided to make this Spanish omelette because we had some leftover over new potatoes that I had boiled the night before and I didn’t want them to go to waste. Plus eggs are great for gestational diabetes and let’s face it, I love chorizo so I put it with everything. I had this for my lunch but it’s one of those meals you could have at any time of the day. It’s also delicious both hot and cold and keeps really well.


Chorizo and spring onion Spanish omelette

70g diced chorizo
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 spring onions, sliced
A handful of baby button mushrooms, sliced
8 – 1o cooked new potatoes, sliced about 1cm thick
8 eggs
Olive oil

Put a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add a little olive oil and then the chorizo and smoked paprika. Fry until the chorizo is almost cooked through. Add the spring onions and mushrooms and cook for a couple of minutes until softened.

Add the potatoes.

Whisk the eggs with enough salt and pepper to taste and pour into the pan. Turn down the heat to low and cook for 15 minutes until the egg is almost set.

In the meantime heat your grill.

When the 15 minutes is up slip your frying pan into the oven under the grill and grill for a couple of minutes until the top is golden brown.

Slice and serve.

Serves 4



  1. I love a good omelette.

    1. Me too! They’re such a good breakfast for gestational diabetes so over the last few months I’ve eaten so many!

  2. This looks amazing! Thank you for sharing!

    1. It was very tasty. I’m going to experiment with other flavours.

  3. Yum! Now you have me wanting to get my hubby to make us omelettes again – he is the omelette king!

    1. What is his speciality? My other favourite is spinach and feta.

      1. He does this thing with cheese and potato pieces which is a particular gem. Like hmmmmmm. Spinach and feta? He has an addiction of NOTE there, so I will have to pass that one along to him, I am sure he will be stoked to try that xD

        1. I buy frozen spinach that is already wilted and chopped. Then I microwave it, stir in a little Philadelphia cheese and crumbled feta and it’s great as a filling for omelettes or even just a side dish.

          1. Sounds bloody delicious! I will check for some this weekend when I do grocery shopping. Philadelphia Cream Cheese makes the world go around. Hmmmmm. Sho, but am I lus for food now (and this just so happens to be a morning in which I haven’t had breakfast yet).
