Spanish-style omelet.

This is a quick and easy take on a traditional Spanish omelet (also called tortilla). It’s a traditional dish from Spain made with eggs and potatoes.

I added cheese, tomatoes, scallions and smoked paprika to make a tasty vegetarian breakfast. It can be served hot or at room temperature, making the omelet perfect for a do-ahead meal.

Any type of hard cheese can be used.

Red or yellow potatoes can be used instead of Yukon Gold.
