This is a quick and easy take on a traditional Spanish omelet (also called tortilla). It’s a traditional dish from Spain made with eggs and potatoes. I added cheese, tomatoes, scallions and smoked paprika to make a tasty vegetarian dinner. It can be served hot or at room temperature, making the omelet perfect for a do-ahead meal.

¾ pound Yukon gold potatoes (about 2½ cups cubed)

Mix whole eggs, egg whites, cheese, scallions and smoked paprika together. Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil in a medium-size nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes and sauté 3 minutes. Add egg mixture, spread evenly to all edges of the skillet and making sure tomatoes are completely covered with the egg mixture. Let set 1 minute. Place the skillet under the broiler about 5-inches from the heat for 5 minutes. The top should be golden and mixture set. Remove from broiler and sprinkle chives on top.
