Prosciutto and Semi Dried Tomato Tortilla

I was a little hesitant with this one as I have never really cooked frittatas or the spanish equivalent tortillas before but saying this was very keen to give it a go. With just hubby and I at home this week I thought we could be a little adventurous anyhow.

With all my concern I have to say that this dish was very easy to make. I loved the texture of the potatoes amongst the omlette like texture and the prosciutto gave it a distinct taste compared to using bacon. This dish would be idea hot or cold for any meal of the day - breakfast, lunch or dinner.
