    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…)

  3. Ronda Kisner February 4, 2011 at 8:55 AM #

    This was tasty! I will be making it again.

  4. flourchild February 4, 2011 at 9:02 AM #

    This is a good recipe!

  5. popsiclesandsandyfeet February 4, 2011 at 9:03 AM #

    Mushroom and herb over here…. this dish is simple, chic, so french…

  6. mardi@eatlivetravelwrite February 4, 2011 at 9:06 AM #

    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!

  7. Michelle DT February 4, 2011 at 9:08 AM #

    Wonderful…minor mods included sliced potatoes and asparagus. Delish and beautiful presentation. Perfect for brunch, lunch or guests.

  8. Tasty Trix February 4, 2011 at 9:10 AM #

    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:

  9. kitchenarian February 4, 2011 at 9:16 AM #

    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…

  10. SugarPlumFairy February 4, 2011 at 9:17 AM #

    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:-))

  11. Anne Marie February 4, 2011 at 9:19 AM #

    My husband and daughter enjoyed this more than I did.

  12. Miss Kris Kitchen February 4, 2011 at 9:22 AM #

    Easy, family friendly, tasty, and was a hit at my grandkiddies tea party.

  13. StephIrey February 4, 2011 at 9:23 AM #

    Family liked this a lot, especially with Dorie’s piperade and some thick cut, apple wood smoked bacon.

  14. cakeduchess February 4, 2011 at 9:25 AM #

    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:)

  15. Newfinmysoup February 4, 2011 at 9:35 AM #

    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!

  16. Marie February 4, 2011 at 9:41 AM #

    A good version of a classic.

  17. beth@thescreenporch February 4, 2011 at 9:43 AM #

    Excited to see everyones tweaks with this one.

  18. ComeUndone February 4, 2011 at 9:53 AM #

    Two words: Duck Fat

    I incorporated mine into a bento with French soul. I think I’m ready to take it for a picnic!

  19. Kat February 4, 2011 at 9:54 AM #

    I liked this challenge, and fell on love with my cast iron skillet all over again!

  20. lizzy February 4, 2011 at 10:35 AM #

    A fabulous breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  21. Serene February 4, 2011 at 10:40 AM #

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

  22. kudoskitchen February 4, 2011 at 10:50 AM #

    Yum ~ Will be making this again soon! So pretty too!

  23. candygirl February 4, 2011 at 10:53 AM #

    Brought back wonderful memories of Barcelona!

  24. MsHobby February 4, 2011 at 10:54 AM #

    This was so much fun, my husband made it with me! I added pancetta, yum!

  25. Vegan Thyme February 4, 2011 at 11:04 AM #

    No eggs were harmed in the making of this dish.

  26. katiebe February 4, 2011 at 11:06 AM #

    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).

  27. franklyentertaining February 4, 2011 at 11:08 AM #

    We mostly all liked this one at my house. Can’t wait to try it again with the mushrooms!

  28. Susan February 4, 2011 at 11:17 AM #

    What fun! A delicious breakfast. Next time I’m using cast iron!

  29. the urban baker February 4, 2011 at 11:19 AM #

    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!

  30. enela79 February 4, 2011 at 11:19 AM #

    Tortilla-Omelet-Fritata= Identity Crisis?! (FFwD)

    This was SUCH a tasty dish! I’m excited to see everyone’s results :)

  31. RedsKitchenDiaries February 4, 2011 at 12:04 PM #

    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!

    • flourchild February 6, 2011 at 4:43 PM #

      I would love to leave a comment on your blog but do not know how. Can you help me?

  32. Katrina February 4, 2011 at 12:20 PM #

    Takes me back to Spain! How can you go wrong with potatoes and eggs?

  33. Seattlepastrygirl February 4, 2011 at 12:20 PM #

    I love this and will definitely be making it again.

  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!

  36. Megan February 4, 2011 at 3:24 PM #

    This is a great standby for a quick lunch or dinner.

  37. cupcakemuffin February 4, 2011 at 4:17 PM #

    Here’s mine! I used fennel and cilantro in place of potatoes, and it turned out well! :)

  38. KY February 4, 2011 at 4:48 PM #

    I made the mushroom version. Delicious!

  39. wanderlustforfood February 4, 2011 at 5:16 PM #

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

  40. Allison February 4, 2011 at 5:29 PM #

    Yum! I really liked the Basque Potato Tortilla

  41. TheAvarice February 4, 2011 at 6:19 PM #

    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!

  42. gaaarp February 4, 2011 at 6:24 PM #

    I liked this more than I expected, but you still won’t catch me eating it cold!

  43. Cheryl February 4, 2011 at 6:24 PM #

    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!

  46. KarenP February 4, 2011 at 8:14 PM #

    We liked, but didn’t love, this one.

  47. ldubois2 February 4, 2011 at 9:50 PM #

    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!

  49. nancyo February 4, 2011 at 10:23 PM #

    Used wild mushrooms instead of potatoes – loved it!

  50. tricia February 4, 2011 at 11:05 PM #

    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 !

  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!

  52. evilcakelady February 4, 2011 at 11:15 PM #

    Finally published! I had to make it at work where I have a functional broiler, good thing the day was pretty slow.

  53. tammycirceo February 5, 2011 at 12:18 AM #

    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.

  54. SisBoom February 5, 2011 at 1:32 AM #

    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.

  56. SoupAddict Karen February 5, 2011 at 1:45 PM #

    I almost skipped this week, but decided it would make a wonderful Saturday lunch. And with a little sausage and cheese, it did.

  57. Annie February 5, 2011 at 8:21 PM #

    This was nice and easy.

  58. Angela February 5, 2011 at 9:32 PM #

    My first Friday with Dorie and I wish I had done better. But here it is. Looking forward to next week.

  59. CafeTerraBlog February 5, 2011 at 11:41 PM #

    I had fun making this dish, and it brought back some memories:)

  60. Judy22 February 6, 2011 at 12:45 AM #

    This brought back memories of Spain.

  61. Zwetschgen February 6, 2011 at 5:28 PM #

    A little tardy, but I’m visiting with family and that comes first. Still, a good recipe!

  62. Jacquelyn February 6, 2011 at 10:38 PM #

    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

  63. maryeats February 7, 2011 at 12:49 PM #

    tardy for the party! But here is my post.

  64. sanya living February 9, 2011 at 6:03 AM #

    A week of record high temps in Sydney made cooking impossible so sorry for late post!

  65. luciacara February 10, 2011 at 8:43 AM #

    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!


  66. Samantha February 11, 2011 at 10:18 AM #

    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.

  67. Karla February 11, 2011 at 2:14 PM #

    A week late! So lame. Sorry!

  68. napangel February 16, 2011 at 12:13 PM #

    Woo hoo! I’m the latest!

  69. Waverly @ February 28, 2011 at 10:28 PM #

    All of February is posted together. I made the tortilla twice: once with the potato which was delicious and then again with onions.
