Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Apollo Mistral organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large yukon gold potatoes
  • 6 large organic eggs
  • fine sea salt
  • black pepper

Instructions

  1. Peel 2 large yukon gold potatoes, rinse them under cold running water and pat them completely dry with a dish cloth, cut each potato into 4 evenly sized quarters, then cut each quarter into 3 evenly sized pieces and thinly slice the potatoes, crack 6 large organic eggs into a large bowl, season them with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper and mix together until well combined
  2. Heat a good quality nonstick fry pan with a medium heat and add 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, after 2 minutes add the slices of potato and mix them around with the olive oil, mix the potatoes occasionally to ensure that they all cook evenly, after 15 minutes season the potatoes with a generous portion of sea salt and a little freshly cracked black pepper, mix together to to ensure all the seasonings are evenly divided, after cooking the potatoes for 25 to 26 minutes they should be perfectly cooked, turn off the heat and transfer the potatoes into the bowl with the beaten eggs and mix together until well combined
  3. Using the same pan heat it with a LOW heat (very important) and add the egg and potato mixture into the pan, using a spatula run it through the outer edges of the pan to make sure the tortilla does not stick, you can also give the pan a quick shake here and there to ensure it is not sticking, after 4 minutes place a plate that is bigger than the pan over the pan, put one hand over the plate and with the other flip the pan, slide the uncooked part of the tortilla into the pan and cook for another 4 minutes, using a spatula you want to compact the tortilla from the outer edges to give it that classic rounded edge, after a total cooking time of 8 minutes (4 minutes per side) remove the pan from the heat and transfer the tortilla de patatas into a serving dish, enjoy!
