Spanish potato, anchovy & capsicum 'omelette'


  • Preheat oven to 200°C fan forced (220°C normal). 
  • Cook the potatoes in boiling water for about 8 mins until almost tender. Drain well, set aside to cool and then slice. 
  • Heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan (that can go into the oven) and gently sauté the garlic, capsicums, potatoes and anchovies until fairly tender, stirring now and again. 
  • Whisk the eggs with the cream, a little salt, plenty of ground pepper and the basil until well incorporated. 
  • Pour the egg mixture into the pan and cook until almost set, bringing in the outside curds as you do so. Then put the pan into the oven and cook for about 10-15 mins. 
  • Cut the omelette into wedges and serve with a simple salad on the side.
