Definitely has a similarity to a  Tortilla Espa├▒ola ( potato omelette ) + a Tortilla Campesina (omelette with porc or ham or both and potatoes ) however, the method is different ..  

Looks delicious  !!

I made this again on the morning of New Year's Eve - it turned out very well!

I followed Jerod's outline to a "T" - except for one thing: I doubled the bacon, because we really like bacon. For the seasoning, which was interspersed between the layers with a delicate hand, we used Montana's own Alpine Touch:

It's the best thing that I know of for almost anything; a seemingly-simple blend of salt, pepper, onion, garlic...but done in a way that creates a really special highlight to everything from meats, eggs and potatoes to popcorn, jerky and soups...and probably a thousand other foods....

We prepared this in our cast iron skillet and it turned out beautifully; in fact, it was so beautiful that I decided to take a photo:

As you can see, we topped it with some extra-sharp Wisconsin cheddar cheese, which toasted up very nicely.

Everything about this was delicious - the thing I like best is how the flavours are stacked from the bottom to the top. The potatoes on the bottom were browned a bit, crisp and wonderfully savory - the tender onions, which were caramelised just a bit, provided a counterpoint that worked its way up through the other layers of melt-in-your-mouth potatoes. The bacon and cheese on top were just the ticket on a sub-zero morning, and the creamy, farm-fresh eggs held it all together, making this a truly special breakfast.

This was probably my best attempt, to date, and it made a nice closing for our year. I sure that if you try it, you will enjoy it... and you won't regret it!
