Gaby Makes Tortilla de Papas | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 16 May 2019
  • Join Gaby in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes Tortilla de Papas. Salting the potatoes ahead of time draws out some of their liquid and guarantees they’re well seasoned, but skip this step if you want some of that moisture when you take a bite!
    Check out the recipe here:

    10 large eggs
    Freshly ground black pepper
    2 tsp. kosher salt, divided, plus more
    2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes (about 6), peeled, cut into ¼” slices
    2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
    1 large onion, halved, thinly sliced lengthwise

    Beat eggs, pepper, and 1 tsp. salt in a large bowl; set aside.

    Pat potatoes dry with a clean towel. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Cook potatoes, turning occasionally, until tender, 8–10 minutes (you can cover the skillet in the beginning; the potatoes should be white, not brown). Add onions in batches and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4–6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer potato mixture to a rimmed baking sheet and let cool slightly. Strain oil into a heatproof bowl. Wipe out skillet.

    Beat eggs again until frothy. Add potato mixture to eggs; season with 1 tsp. salt. Heat ¼ cup reserved oil in same skillet over medium-high (chill remaining oil and reserve for another use). Add egg mixture, arranging potatoes to submerge. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, making sure potatoes are submerged but mostly undisturbed, until eggs are almost set and top is still slightly runny, 15–20 minutes.

    Invert tortilla onto a large plate, then slide back into skillet browned side up. Cook over medium heat until golden on the bottom and cooked through, about 5 minutes more.

    Cut into wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    *Do Ahead:* Tortilla can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.

              'if the recipe calls for 10 mins and the potatoes are obviously not cook, give it a couple of minutes. NOBODY WILL KNOW AND WE WILL ALL STILL BE FRIENDS' QUOTE OF THE YEAR 2019!!!!

                          I´m from Argentina and a cake without dulce de leche is not a cake. Ps love that Gabi makes Argentinian dishes for the videos, keep it up.

                              the only thing i´ve got to say is that tortilla de patata can´t be cooked so much, like it´s supposed to be juicier, a bit raw, like the perfect runny egg yolk. sending lots of love to gaby from spain :)

                                When I was able to recognize tortilla on a Spanish menu when I first visited, I immediately ordered and was in for a pleasant surprise. They make them with ham too, yumma

                                              My dad made tortillita. My friends at school would make fun of me because tortilla to them was a flat flour or corn tortilla in a package from the store. But our family was from Spain/Portugal.

                                                              That is the worst tortilla with onions that you can get: crunchy onions ruin the tortilla. Those onions are severely underdone. They should have been added first, or together with the potatos, if you wait until the potatos are done, the onions will have not time enough to cook properly, and caramelize a bit, that is what gives onion flavor to the tortilla. Huge fail, this.

Just clean your whole potatoes and slice them. Easy! And a tip to get a very spongy tortilla de patatas is to add a bit of milk to the egg.
