French Omelet Sandwich (Sandwich de tortilla francesa)

"Tortilla francesa" is an omelet with no fixings. The secret to this sandwich is  the rubbed tomato bread (pan con tomate) which is traditional in Catalonia. A simple and quick lunch.


1/4 cup olive oil just to wet the pan
1 or 2 eggs whisked
2 slices rustic bread or baguette
1 very ripe tomato
extra virgin olive oil

Rub one side of each bread slice with a very ripe tomato. Then sprinkle the bread with salt and extra virgin olive oil. Whisk 2 eggs and pour them in a medium sauté pan. Start folding the omelet and cook to the desired doneness. Place the omelet on one slice of bread and top it with the other slice.
