“Without a bread-loaf base, this omelet can also be cut into small pieces and served as a tapa or an appetizer, either warm or at room temperature. This recipe was shared by Carol at the Grouse Ridge B&B In the historic Gold Canyon Highlands, Rock Creek, BC where we once stayed. Prep is quickest using a food processor.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325°. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté, stirring, until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.
  2. Return the skillet to heat, and add 1 tablespoon oil. Add potatoes, cover, and sauté until soft, stirring, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with onions, and combine.
  3. Whisk together eggs; add salt and pepper. Transfer to the bowl with onions and potatoes, and combine.
  4. Return the skillet to the heat, and add 1 tablespoon oil. Add egg mixture, and cook until edges set and start to brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Cover, and bake in the oven until set, about 10 minutes. Remove cover, and broil until top is golden.
  5. Meanwhile, slice bread in half crosswise, and reserve the top half for another use. Remove some of the inside from bottom half, and discard crumb. Toast bread under the broiler until golden. Remove, brush with 3 tablespoons oil, and rub with garlic clove. Toss frisée with remaining tablespoon oil, vinegar, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Scatter greens over bread, and slide torta over greens. Cut in wedges, and serve.
