Getting Back to Business

Thank you for all of your support in this difficult time. I'm getting to a place where my medications are levelling out in my system and I feel pretty good. I've been so sick of being out of commission! It was really nice to get back in the kitchen and create a meal today. I hope you enjoy it! ...and expect more, because I'm ready to get back to cooking!

Spanish tortilla is a potato and egg dish, not a tortilla like we use in Mexican cuisine. Don't worry about all the olive oil you use making it. Once you drain it off, it ends up only being 1/4 of a cup for six servings.

Spanish Tortilla
Serves 6 (5 Points Plus value per serving)

What You Need:
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 lb peeled and thinly sliced potatoes
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 8 large eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
How it's Done:
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat until it glistens. After a few minutes, add the potatoes and onions, turning them over with a spatula to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook the potatoes and onions, turning every few minutes so as not to allow them to brown. You want the potatoes to soften so that they are easily pierced with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, beat the eggs and season them with salt and pepper. Heat your oven to 350 degrees (this is the easiest way to finish cooking the tortilla).
  • Once the potatoes are fork tender, drain them in a colander over a bowl, reserving the oil.
  • Pour about two tablespoons of the reserved oil back into the skillet and return the potatoes and onions to the skillet. Place over medium heat.
  • Pour the beaten eggs over the potatoes. Cook, undisturbed, about eight to ten minutes at medium-low, until the edges are set.
  • Slide your spatula around the edges and under the tortilla to loosen it from the skillet.
  • Move the skillet to the preheated oven and finish cooking (about ten minutes).
  • Slice and serve.

Here's hoping you continue to mend. This is an interesting recipe, although probably not something I would make. It does, however, put me in mind of eggs and tortillas and chorizo!
