Spanish Tortilla Bites
3 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 can new potatoes, drained, sliced, and blotted dry with paper towels (otherwise the oil splatters and ouchie)
2 slices deli sandwich ham, finely chopped (unless they're really small/thin; then you might want to double up)
2 tbsp. water
3/4 tsp. salt
fresh black pepper
1/4 cup jarred roasted red pepper, chopped finely
1 cup cheddar cheese
Heat oil in a skillet, then add pepper, onion, and potatoes. Cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently, until veggies caramelize, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and spread evenly in a greased small pan (I used an 8x10). Sprinkle with ham.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, water, salt and pepper. Stir in cheese and pepper. Pour evenly over onion mixture, redistributing cheese if necessary. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, until edges are set and middle is soft, and a knife inserted in edges comes out dry, but a knife inserted in center comes out wet. Allow to cool to room temperature, then chill for at least 3 hours or overnight before cutting into however many rounds/squares/wedges you want.
