    Home sick today, and a slice of this makes for a great breakfast. Can’t wait to make another with the right sized pan!

    Some days, a girl just needs to carb load (and a little protein thrown in can’t hurt…)

    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 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:)

    This is a standard family meal for us. Loved it anyway, because this time the kid made it. :-)

    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).

    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!

    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!

  34. creolekid February 4, 2011 at 1:18 PM #

    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.

  35. PheMom February 4, 2011 at 2:27 PM #

    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!

    didn’t have any potatoes this week so it ended up being a frittata!

    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’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!

  44. Bakeawaywithme February 4, 2011 at 7:19 PM #

    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.

  45. lindseymilam February 4, 2011 at 7:30 PM #

    Loved it and will definitely make it again. Next time with mushrooms!

    Tortilla was okay….made it with mussels and chorizo without pasta on page 316. Highly recommend the mussels.

  48. Candy February 4, 2011 at 9:54 PM #

    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!

  51. Guileless Gourmande February 4, 2011 at 11:09 PM #

    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!

    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.

  55. stoutkitty February 5, 2011 at 7:43 AM #

    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.
