Tortilla Española – Wordless (Meatless) Wednesday

Posting on this wordless day, I’m tired of talking anyway. 🙂

1 large Russet Potato, very thinly sliced
1 medium Sweet Yellow Onion, thinly sliced
1 Dozen Eggs, whisked
2 T Heavy Cream (optional)
Coarse Salt
Coarse Pepper

Coat the bottom of a *frittata pan, with olive oil. Add the potatoes, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper and cook on medium high until they are soft. Add the onions and continue cooking on medium low until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.

Whisk the eggs and the cream.  Pour them on top of the potatoes and onions. Add 3/4 tsp. salt. Cook on medium low. With a spatula, gently pull the firming egg from the sides of the pan and let the runny part of the egg take its place to firm. Continue doing this until the eggs are no longer runny.

Place the second pan on top and flip the eggs so that the top is now on the bottom. Continue cooking until the bottom is nicely browned. You may have to flip it a couple times to make sure the tortilla is cooked all the way through. Serve warm or room temperature. Serves 6.

* If you do not have frittata pans – once the eggs are ready to be turned, slide them onto a plate. Put your pan on top of the plate and flip it quickly so the runny part of the egg is now on the bottom of the pan.
