Garlic Chive Spanish Tortilla

Think of this as your own personal sized Spanish tortilla. 

It is much easier to flip when it is tiny..

And just look at my garlic chives plant!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 medium russet potato, sliced as thinly as possible
  • a glug of oil (1/4 cup?)
  • 1/4 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-4 tbsp diced garlic chives

Thinly slice the potato or use a mandolin. In a medium hot pan, add the oil and cook the potato slices in a single layer, flipping them over after a few minutes and being careful not to brown them or fry them. You want them just fork tender, but not over cooked. You will have to do them in a few batches.

Take them out and put them in a bowl. Once they are cooked, do the onions the same way, not browned, just softened. Add to the bowl. Reserve the oil.

In a separate bowl, scramble the eggs. I like to add a dash of water to mine, but you can do milk or nothing or whatever. Season and add the chives. You could add some cheese here too if you want, but I didn’t.. Not sure why.

Once the potato mixture is cooled a bit, pour in the eggs to cover the potatoes. Then in a small nonstick pan, add some of the leftover oil and heat over a medium hot. Add the garlic chives and cook for just a minute or two. Pour in the egg potato mixture. It will sizzle and cook fast, so you want to use a spatula and tip the pan to let some of the uncooked egg mixture flow down into the bottom of the pan to cook.

After 5 minutes or so, you will start to smell the eggs cooking. You can carefully lift up a side to see the bottom. It should be browned and the top should start looking set, but still a little wet from the uncooked eggs.

Take a plate and put it on top of the pan. Flip it over, then carefully slide the tortilla back into the pan to cook the other side for another 3-5 minutes. I take mine out by flipping it back onto the plate.

Sprinkle with more garlic chives and enjoy it all to yourself!
