The traditional Spanish potato tortilla is one of Spain's signature dishes, and its most famous comfort food. Ask a Spaniard and she will invariably say that her mother's tortilla is the best. Served hot or cold, this potato and egg treat is always popular in homes and tapas bars across the country.
This durable, non-stick tortilla system will make a perfect tortilla every time. The two pans interlock with a stainless steel clasp for easy flipping. The bottom pan is slightly larger so the top pan fits securely. Flipping the tortilla is the most challenging part of the recipe, and this innovative design makes it easy.
Tortilla literally means "little cake" and in Spain this means a delicious savory combination of potatoes and eggs cooked in olive oil - you could call it a potato frittata. You may add diced serrano ham, chorizo, onions or other vegetables to add a more dynamic flavor. Spanish tortillas are completely different from the Mexican variety made of corn or flour.
Each pan is approximately 10 inches in diameter and can be used separately for other types of cooking. Avoid using metal tools which might scratch the non-stick surface. Wash by hand with warm soapy water.
