On The Menu: Spanish Tortillas


    Have you ever indulged in a Spanish tortilla? It's similar to the American frittata, but you know us - we always prefer the real deal. Whether you cook it solely on the stove top (the classic way!) or finish it in the oven like this recipe adapted from Mark Bittman / NY Times, it's a one pot meal (which means less dishes to clean up, amen?). And even though you'll have to dirty a few mixing bowls in the process, trust us - it's way worth it.

    As the potatoes cook, beat eggs in a large mixing bowl with salt, pepper, herbs, chives and lemon zest.

  • 4_spanishtortilla

    Drain skillet mixture in a colander, reserving the oil. Wipe out the skillet and make sure nothing is stuck to the pan. Add 2 tablespoons of reserved oil back into the pan. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

    Add drained potatoes into the egg mixture and combine well. Add to skillet over medium heat. As soon as the edges firm up, reduce heat to medium low. Cook for about 10-12 minutes until tortilla begins to solidify. Add to oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tortilla is browned and set. Cool for 15 minutes before serving.
