Notes

Substitute 1-2 slices Serrano ham with the local ham or 3-4 slices Canadian bacon. Add the bacon strips to the pan first when preparing the filling and adjust cooking time.

Follow the indications on Spanish omelets about how to flip over the omelet.

For a quick Marie Rose sauce, combine 1 cup mayonnaise from a jar, 3 Tbs ketchup, 1 Tbs brandy and 1 Tbs orange juice.

Adapt this recipe for the winter months by substituting Marie Rose sauce with a spicy tomato sauce.
