Oven Baked Tortilla

We get through a lot of eggs in this house, used in a variety of ways. I use most in baking but when the husband is on cooking duty (which isn't very often) he can be known to use a box of eggs or more cooking up one of his specialities of either 'egg on beans on cheese on ham on toast' or 'Dad's omelette', which are apparently better than 'Mum's omelette's'. I must admit, my omelettes aren't great and usually stick to the pan and fall apart before they get to the plate, which is why I'm more of a Tortilla (Spanish Omelette) kind of person. Oven baked ones are the best as it's easier to get them cooked evenly all the way through without burning the bottom and ending up with an uncooked top.

This is one of my favourite dishes to cook up when on holiday as it's really easy to prepare, and the kids love it. You can either use an oven proof frying pan or a large shallow cake tin, as I have here.
