The BEST Cheesy Garlic Omelette EVER | Easy 5 Minute Breakfast Recipe

This Cheesy Garlic Omelette, known as Tortilla de Queso al Ajillo, is probably the BEST Cheesy omelette ever. It´s packed with a ton of garlic goodness, super easy to make and all done in about 5 minutes.

Cheesy Garlic Omelette
This recipe is inspired by the restaurant Bar Ecus, which is located in the historic town of Segorbe. It´s typically served for either almuerzo (early lunch) or dinner. But you can totally serve it for breakfast.

Cheesy Garlic Omelette
What really gives this omelette that punch of garlic goodness is the Garlic Infused Olive Oil. The secret is to add it into the hot pan right before you add the eggs. That way it keeps its beautiful aroma and flavor.

Cheesy Garlic OmeletteTIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: To make the parsley & garlic sauce, I used a mortar and pestle. But you can always use a food processor or handheld blender. Either way, the amount of sauce made, is enough to make 4 omelettes.
