Spinach and Potato Spanish Delight Recipe

This dish combines the hearty textures of potatoes with the freshness of spinach, enriched with eggs, sour cream, and cheese. A perfect choice for a filling brunch or a comforting dinner, this Spanish-inspired recipe is both nutritious and satisfying. Here’s how to make it:


  • 450 g of potatoes (approximately 1 pound), peeled and diced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 250 g of spinach (approximately 8.8 ounces), washed and roughly chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons of sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 150 g of hard cheese (such as mozzarella or your choice), grated (approximately 1 1/2 cups shredded)


  1. Preheat Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish.
  2. Cook the Potatoes:
    • In a large skillet, boil the diced potatoes in salted water until they are just tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  3. Sauté Onions and Spinach:
    • In the same skillet, heat a little oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent and soft, about 5 minutes.
    • Add the chopped spinach to the skillet. Cook until the spinach wilts and reduces in volume, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Combine Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with sour cream, garlic powder, and baking powder. Stir in the sautéed onions and spinach, cooked potatoes, and half of the grated cheese.
  5. Assemble the Dish:
    • Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish. Spread evenly and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.
  6. Bake:
    • Place the dish in the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the top is golden and bubbly.
  7. Serve:
    • Let the dish cool slightly before cutting into portions. Serve warm.


  • Additional Seasonings: Feel free to add additional spices such as smoked paprika, black pepper, or a pinch of nutmeg to enhance the flavor.
  • Serving Suggestions: This dish pairs wonderfully with a side salad or steamed vegetables to create a balanced meal.
  • Variations: If you like a bit of a crunch, you can add a breadcrumb topping mixed with a little melted butter before baking, adding texture to the creamy filling.
