Omelette Basquaise

 

4 eggs, well beaten
2 potatoes, finely sliced
1 bell pepper, cut in small pieces
½ small onion, sliced
5” long piece of chorizo, cut into ¼” slices

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brown potatoes, pepper, onions until well done, or slightly crisp, according to personal taste.  Add chorizo and eggs.  Mix well in pan at low heat.  When ready, fold in half.  Continue cooking for 2 minutes, then turn with spatula and cook other side 2 minutes more.

 

 

 

 

 

Serve on platter with slices of tomatoes on top sprinkled with parsley.  This also makes a delicious light dinner, with a green salad with oil-and-vinegar dressing.
