Just talking to my daughter over the phone raving about the Basque Potato Tortilla- that she has just got to make this delicious concoction of seasoned potatoes, onions and eggs cooked omelet style then run under the broiler to finish cooking the eggs! It blew me away when she said she made a similar tortilla last week! This was my first, but won't be my last. It's super easy and one probably has all the ingredients sitting around in the fridge or the pantry. Although there were many variations of the tortilla listed in the sidebar, I stuck with the basic recipe only adding crumbled, crispy cooked bacon to the mix. Not only is the tortilla great warm, but just as wonderful served cold as an appetizer with a glass of Sangria, tapas style. I'm constantly on the search for sturdy picnic fare. The tortilla would make delicious picnic food!
A seasoned cast iron frying pan is the perfect vessel to cook the tortilla in, specifically a 9-10-inch one with oven proof handles. I have at least 5 iron frying pans and assorted other cast iron items, but none was the right size, so I used the pan you see in the photo. If you are interested in the recipe for the Basque Potato Tortilla, by all means buy Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan. If you are willing to cook along with French Fridays with Dorie, check out it out here. I love the book- can't wait to cook all the recipes.
