A Taste of Spain

Photo by Maria, 2007

When Maria lived in Spain last year for a month, she told me one of the dishes they ate most frequently was Tortilla De Patatas. Monday afternoon, I thought it was about time we tried it here so she could remember her trip.

These are the ingredients:
6-7 medium potatoes, peeled
1 whole yellow onion
5-6 large eggs
2-3 cups of olive oil for pan frying
Salt to taste

And here is the recipe.

You might notice the whole thing needs to be flipped over. John came home just in time to see Maria and I start our attempt. He quickly took over so it wouldn't turn into too much of a mess. It might not look as good as it could have but oh my, it was very good and Maria got another taste of Spain in her own mom's kitchen. We all loved it.
Note: The next night, I made a half portion which is just right for a side dish and much more manageable :)
