Contributor’s comments:
This is a Canadian-Filipino variation of an omelette.  Torta means omelette or pie and Giniling means ground.   Tortang Giniling in this case is a pork omelette.  A good variation from the usual North American Ham and Cheese omelette and hash browns.

A truly Filipino version of this dish is the Tortang Talong (Eggplant omelette)

Just watch this you tube video to see how it is made.
