The star of this dish, besides the eggs, are the mushrooms. With the technique we´re going to cook them in, they´re going to have the most incredible texture & flavor ever.
This omelette is typically served here in Spain for Almuerzo, which is an early lunch. But you can serve it for breakfast or even dinner, next to some classic Spanish potatoes for an incredible meal.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: To make this omelette I used a Spanish Omelette Pan. This pan is specifically made to make Spanish tortillas. It makes the flip to cook the other side effort-less. Of course. you can go the traditional way, by using a plate. Just place it over the pan and then flip the pan into the plate and slide back into the pan.

Transfer the sauteed mushrooms into the bowl with the eggs, mix together and let it sit for 5 minutes
Meanwhile, heat the same pan with a low-medium heat and add in 1 tbsp (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil, after 5 minutes add in the mushroom & egg mixture, give it a gently mix so everything is evenly distributed, after 2 minutes run a spatula through the outer edges, to ensure the eggs are not sticking to the pan
After 4 to 5 minutes it´s time to flip the omelette to cook the other side, place the other pan over the bottom pan and hook together, firmly hold the handles and in one swift move flip the pans, remove the top pan, using the back of a spatula compact the tortilla from the outer edges into the center to achieve the rounded edge
After another 4 to 5 minutes, the omelette should be perfectly cooked, remove the pan from the heat and transfer into a serving dish, enjoy!
