Tortilla de Papa

Sometimes I get tired of mashing potatoes or baking them so I make this Tortilla a lot, it is something my mom always made for us as kids, and its so yummy and simple to make, try it out! Serve with a salad, or meat, or whatever you want!


6 Potatoes, any kind
4-5 eggs
2 tablespoons of milk
1 spanish onion or any onion of choice
6 slices of bacon
salt and pepper to taste

First gather your potatoes, peel and wash.
Chop them, I like them small some people chop them bigger.
Set aside your chopped potatoes, preheat some olive oil in a deep pan. Now chop your onions and cook for a couple of minutes, on medium heat.

Now add your chopped potatoes to the onions.

Mix and cook until tender, not soft, tender without them breaking apart, you may have to mix this several times to prevent sticking and to make sure they all cook evenly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
In the meantime chop your bacon.

Cook your bacon in a separate pan until its a bit brown.
Remove and drain with a paper towel.
Add bacon to potatoes and mix.

mix eggs and milk
In a large bowl add egg mix, then potatoe mix and incorporate gently.
Return mix to the pan and cook for about 5-8 minutes on medium high heat.

Now here is the tricky part. Using a big plate or a lid cover your potatoes, you will have to turn around the whole thing and return it to pan so that both sides are cooked evenly.

Next without burning yourself turn it around. And slide it back gently to the pan!

Cook for another few minutes and you are done! Serve and enjoy with family.
Hugs to all!
