Tortilla de Morcilla | Spanish Omelette with Blood Sausage

This Tortilla de Morcilla, or Spanish Omelette with Blood Sausage, is a delicious revelation with each new bite. In Spain omelettes are always made with potatoes, and the secret to success is sweating them in a lot of olive oil before adding the eggs.

Yes, yes, I am again hosting Food ‘n Flix for June. I went the subtitled route once more by picking the Spanish masterpiece Volver. With pen and paper in hand, I soon realized there was a lot more food in this movie than I remembered.  Picking a recipe was hard but I chose one marked on a restaurant menu: a Tortilla de Morcilla, or Spanish Omelette with Blood Sausage.

Do you believe in destiny? Do you ever have a feeling something was meant to be, that there is a reason as to why something is happening in your life? I often do and this is one perfect example. One day I got a message on Facebook by a total stranger, a woman in my city, who insisted on taking me out too lunch so she could pick my brain to give advice on her new food blog journey. I was skeptical but curious so we chatted for a bit. A month later we had a blind foodie date. We had the most awesome 3 hour lunch and I could not help feel I was meant to become friends with this person.

Warning: the faint of heart at the sight of blood…abstain from this post!
