I think I've seen this Tortilla Espanola before, but my mother's very own recipe at that.

Here's the chefs and magazine editor's version. It should be as equally delectable!

Tortilla Española

Start to finish: 30 minutes
Servings: 4



  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet over medium, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onion and garlic and saute until soft, about 4 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Fold the onion mixture and potatoes into the eggs, then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the oven to broil.
  5. Return the skillet to medium heat. Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of oil. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook for 4 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven about 10 inches from the broiler. Broil for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned on the top and the egg is set.
