Join Gaby in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes Tortilla de Papas. Salting the potatoes ahead of time draws out some of their liquid and guarantees they’re well seasoned, but skip this step if you want some of that moisture when you take a bite!
Check out the recipe here:

10 large eggs
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp. kosher salt, divided, plus more
2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes (about 6), peeled, cut into ¼” slices
2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion, halved, thinly sliced lengthwise

Beat eggs, pepper, and 1 tsp. salt in a large bowl; set aside.

Pat potatoes dry with a clean towel. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Cook potatoes, turning occasionally, until tender, 8-10 minutes (you can cover the skillet in the beginning; the potatoes should be white, not brown). Add onions in batches and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 4-6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer potato mixture to a rimmed baking sheet and let cool slightly. Strain oil into a heatproof bowl. Wipe out skillet.

Beat eggs again until frothy. Add potato mixture to eggs; season with 1 tsp. salt. Heat ¼ cup reserved oil in same skillet over medium-high (chill remaining oil and reserve for another use). Add egg mixture, arranging potatoes to submerge. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, making sure potatoes are submerged but mostly undisturbed, until eggs are almost set and top is still slightly runny, 15-20 minutes.

Invert tortilla onto a large plate, then slide back into skillet browned side up. Cook over medium heat until golden on the bottom and cooked through, about 5 minutes more.

Cut into wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature.

*Do Ahead:* Tortilla can be made 2 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.

I made this and it was a success! I made in cast iron skillet, I made in small pan just split amount in half for 7.5 inch skillet. I think that's the size. I used different flipping method asking the food God's for help. It worked! Next time I might add some Parmigiano Reggiano. Thank you Gabby. You are a great teacher.

potato tortilla
......okay, for anyone completely dismissing this recipe because the flipping part looks too difficult, or you don’t have plates big enough, or whatever.....just make a smaller one. Use your 8 inch nonstick instead of the 12. It’s much easier to handle.

I still find her methods a bit too much. I make those in a different order, also not that abuse of a flip,, you just need to add some strength. Anyway her results are perfect.

I'm spanish and i have to say that we cook the ognions and the potatos way more before making the tortilla, so the ognion have that sweety roasted flavor. We cut the potatos with a knive and we try to cut them irregular, like in triangles or flat pyramids. That way the potatos have a crunchy side and a soft side. Good video as always BA!
