YouTube Preview Image

This is another video that we shot nearly a year ago (when I was still pregnant with Jachs!) and are finally able to share!  The only catch is that I forgot to take a photo of the final product so you’ll just have to use your imagination until I get to make this one again… enjoy!

Spanish Tortilla

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 15-20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 8 eggs
  • 12 egg whites (1.5 cups)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 lbs. baby potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups of sliced leeks

Directions:

Pre heat oven to 400.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and eggwhites. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring them to a boil and then drain. You want your pottaoes to be tender yet al dente.

In the meantime, heat the olive oil in a 13 inch skillet over a medium high heat. Add in leeks and a pinch of salt and saute for about 8-10 minutes or until the leeks are tender. Shut off the heat and add the potatoes into the pan along with the leeks and season with salt and pepper. Be sure to toss everything together.

Pour the egg mixture into the pan making sure that all th eveggies are covered by the eggs.

Pop the pan into the oven for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!

Makes 6 servings.

    Dani, I love your videos! I wish I knew how to edit like you do and that I had someone to film me (I assume you have help, or are you using and moving a tripod the whole time?) And the tortilla looks fab :) I’ve been craving a sweet potato version lately!

    Hey Cara! So glad you enjoy the videos… and uh… NO… I don’t shoot or edit my videos. This here, is a two man operation! My hubby does all the camera and post production work! I\m a lucky gal;)
    This would be great with sweet potatoes… think I may have to give that a try!
