Tortilla Espanola Casserole

Looking for something more interesting to share over brunch? We’ve got you covered! Tortilla Espanola is a classic egg and potato dish served in Spain. While the traditional tortilla recipe spares no fats, our lighter version leaves a little more room for some yummy sides (Did you say BACON?) It is such an easy, budget-friendly meal with endless possibilities when it comes to variation. Try adding veggies or your favorite meats to the dish before baking (bacon, sausage, ham!)... or go more traditional and serve on the side. Top with your favorite salsa for a little spice. Oh, the possibilities!
