It’s Friday! You know what that means. Another round of Leave Your Link! Go ahead, don’t be shy. Leave your link here. :)

Home sick today, and a slice of this makes for a great breakfast. Can’t wait to make another with the right sized pan!
It was wonderful – but the potatos took twice as long to cook through as the recipe indicated. Not sure if the pan wasn’t hot enough or what, but maybe next time I’ll microwave the chunks first, to kick-start a week-night dinner. Thumbs up overall.
Made a mini…
Delicious during the blizzard!
Love the idea of using mushrooms, instead of potatoes! I love love mushrooms:)
This was so good with mushrooms!
Some days, a girl just needs to carb load (and a little protein thrown in can’t hurt…)
This was tasty! I will be making it again.
This is a good recipe!
Mushroom and herb over here…. this dish is simple, chic, so french…
Loved this – made it twice! Once vegetarian and once using my #charcutepalooza duck prosciutto! It also inspired a whole post about a wonderful summer spent in the Basque region!
Wonderful…minor mods included sliced potatoes and asparagus. Delish and beautiful presentation. Perfect for brunch, lunch or guests.
Not to be a contrarian, but I do think the recipe as written is a bit bland and requires modification to make it as flavorful as I would like: http://tastytrix.blogspot.com/2011/02/basque-purple-potato-tortilla-for.html
Another fun week in the kitchen with Dorie’s cookbook. I have so many plans for the next version of this recipe…mushrooms…spinach….cheese…
I made this one with what i had in the pantry the sunday that went by , and it was fantastic , i had to make 2 batches:-))
My husband and daughter enjoyed this more than I did.
Easy, family friendly, tasty, and was a hit at my grandkiddies tea party.
Family liked this a lot, especially with Dorie’s piperade and some thick cut, apple wood smoked bacon.
I loved making my Basque Tortilla! It was a lovely dinner with a mixed salad. I can’t wait to have it again for lunch today:)
Happy Friday! This one would benefit from one of the bonne idees, but it was nice with a great salad.
There’s a Newf in My Soup!
A good version of a classic.
Excited to see everyones tweaks with this one.
Two words: Duck Fat
I incorporated mine into a bento with French soul. I think I’m ready to take it for a picnic!
I liked this challenge, and fell on love with my cast iron skillet all over again!
A fabulous breakfast, lunch or dinner!
This is a standard family meal for us. Loved it anyway, because this time the kid made it. :-)
Yum ~ Will be making this again soon! So pretty too!
Brought back wonderful memories of Barcelona!
This was so much fun, my husband made it with me! I added pancetta, yum!
Simple and tasty!
No eggs were harmed in the making of this dish.
Very much enjoyed this one–I’ve got Basque heritage and it reminded me of my travels there! I added pancetta AND served it with a Basque Txakolina (we had it for dinner).
We mostly all liked this one at my house. Can’t wait to try it again with the mushrooms!
What fun! A delicious breakfast. Next time I’m using cast iron!
This is one of the perfect ones. Perfect recipe that is. I have been making “spanish tortillas” for years, yet none as creamy and delicious as this! I will make this over and over again!
Tortilla-Omelet-Fritata= Identity Crisis?! (FFwD)
This was SUCH a tasty dish! I’m excited to see everyone’s results :)
Sweet jeebus, this was an amazing dish … seriously, I kept going back for nibbles, even though I was full.
I did make one tiny flavor change – I substituted some nice smokey paprika for the cayenne (just wasn’t in the mood for hot-n-spicy last night) … it was fantastic!
well done, Dorie!
I would love to leave a comment on your blog but do not know how. Can you help me?
Great recipe! Loved by all!!
Takes me back to Spain! How can you go wrong with potatoes and eggs?
I love this and will definitely be making it again.
Mine is upside down! But I am posting it anyway. Having the bottom on the top sort of makes it look like it needs a sauce, since it is browner; maybe a cream sauce with shrimp and crabmeat. Whatever… it’s great and I’m off into the day.
I made mine with a sweet potato!
A little late to the party, but I finally got my post up! I made a smaller version and used scallions for a lighter onion flavor. Also added a little gruyere. This was great!
Loved this one! :)
This is a great standby for a quick lunch or dinner.
Here’s mine! I used fennel and cilantro in place of potatoes, and it turned out well! :)
I made the mushroom version. Delicious!
didn’t have any potatoes this week so it ended up being a frittata!
Yum! I really liked the Basque Potato Tortilla
I am new to French Fridays with Dorie, so first I’d like to say Bonjour! I’m glad to be here! I just caught on to the whole Leave Your Link thing today and coincidentally, I just posted about a recipe from AMFT. Unfortunately, it was not the Basque Potato Tortilla. (I started on desserts and am working my way backward!) Earlier this week, I made the Sable Breton with Berries and it was so delectable. I promise from this point forward I will follow the rules, but just this once, I have to post because it turned out so lovely!
I liked this more than I expected, but you still won’t catch me eating it cold!
I’m back! Sorry I missed last week. Spring sports have already kicked in and I’m still recovering. BUT I did make the p’stilla, just sayin’.
Hope you are warm and dry wherever you are!
Well I have been on the road all day…so pardon my tardiness! Loved this dish!
Delicious and fairly easy. Just what I needed after a day of shoveling snow.
Loved it and will definitely make it again. Next time with mushrooms!
Will definitely make this again and again! Delicious!
We liked, but didn’t love, this one.
I love egg dishes!
Tortilla was okay….made it with mussels and chorizo without pasta on page 316. Highly recommend the mussels.
Yum! Yum! Yum! Two weeks in a row I loved it.
so late, but I still really liked this!
we had it while waiting for our chocolate mousse cake to cool… that, plus a glass of wine… can’t be bad!
Used wild mushrooms instead of potatoes – loved it!
Nana’s got us through the deadline this week – a winner (Nana and the recipe :) Can’t wait to try it myself. Will update post when I do. Stay warm everyone !
Simple and tasty. But when I think of all the recipes that could have been chosen, it was an unexciting choice (basically tortilla espanola). As mentioned previously, I also found it took a bit longer to cook the potatoes, and somehow I also almost burned the bottom. It was a new pan so maybe that’s why.
Bon appetit a tous!
Finally published! I had to make it at work where I have a functional broiler, good thing the day was pretty slow.
Ugh … Totally thought we were supposed to be making the Orange Almond Tart this week!! But … I couldn’t find almond flour which is usually readily available where I live. I made Chocolate Mousse as an alternative, then realized that we were making Tortillas. Nincompoop that I am …
Anyway … here’s my post. Tons of memories in this dish for me.
Just under the wire for Friday! More of a ‘technique’ than a ‘recipe’. With this there is no reason to ever waste anything in your fridge again.
That’s exactly what I was thinking!
In under the wire, this time!
I learned to make this originally from a woman from Spain this past fall and I think I like the flipping it and finishing it off on the stove top method a little bit more. Like my teacher said you could add anything to this to jazz it up. I used some colorful potatoes and chorizo in mine and served it with Espinacas a la Catalana.
I almost skipped this week, but decided it would make a wonderful Saturday lunch. And with a little sausage and cheese, it did.
This was nice and easy.
My first Friday with Dorie and I wish I had done better. But here it is. Looking forward to next week.
I had fun making this dish, and it brought back some memories:)
This brought back memories of Spain.
A little tardy, but I’m visiting with family and that comes first. Still, a good recipe!
Made my Basque tortilla tonight for game supper; I added some zucchini & ham & a little Parma cheese. It was very nice; used cast iron skillet- no sticking
tardy for the party! But here is my post. http://peaseporridgepdx.wordpress.com/2011/02/07/chickens-make-eggs/
A week of record high temps in Sydney made cooking impossible so sorry for late post!
I am late, too…have been out of town for much of the last 6 weeks.
I made a lot of FFWD lately, though, including the tortilla and am now back on the schedule with all of you!
Hi everyone! I just signed up, and am very excited to cook these recipes with all of you. Loved this recipe, perfect for dinner and lunch the next day.
A week late! So lame. Sorry!
Woo hoo! I’m the latest!
All of February is posted together. I made the tortilla twice: once with the potato which was delicious and then again with onions.
