FFwD: Potato Chip Tortilla

Potato Chip Tortilla

This week’s French Friday with Dorie is kind of neat — a Spanish Tortilla made with potato chips instead of slices of potato! You basically crush a bunch of chips and add to eggs, onion, spices and pop into a pan to cook! I’d go so far as to say that if you crushed your chips on the larger side and didn’t tell anyone that you’d used potato chips, they might not even be able to tell.

I used a mix of red onion and green onion in mine and I was very tempted to try this with the multicolored vegetable chips, but after reading the label, decided against it as they were higher in calories, fat and carbs than these olive oil potato chips. Go figure.

Anyway, here’s a link to everyone’s posts and here are my photos below!

Trader Joe’s chips with olive oil…a good choice!

  1. That looks reeeeally good. Maybe it’s the oil bubbles in the picture, but I want to stick my face in it. haha! Glad you enjoyed this one. I’m looking forward to making it eventually. I do love a good egg dish.

  2. Eileen: Ha! Totally! I took it out of the oven and took a super-quick pic as I thought the bubbling oil looked…delicious! 😉
    Soma: Thanks!
    Cher: Thanks! 🙂

  3. Eileen, please, please, please don’t put your face in bubbling oil, ‘kay? 🙂 But she’s right, it looks very festive and party-worthy with all the bubble action.

  4. Looks great! The little bubbles I see in the photo reminded me of mine as I stared intensely into the oven because I was afraid to over-brown the tortilla. I think you made a great choice with the olive oil chips.

  5. Looks like your tortilla came out just perfect. Not for this first time I was wishing that I had a cast iron pan when I made this. Sigh, maybe next year I’ll add one to my kitchen.

  6. Beautiful pictures of your tortilla, I like your additions and the versatility of this recipe. I also like the chopped herbs on top, definitely looks good to have a little sprinkle of freshness served on top!
