I was so excited for this week’s French Fridays with Dorie because uhhh, it gave me an excuse to eat potato chips for dinner! Not just chips but my favorite plain, greasy, overly salty potato chips!
This tortilla is a take-off of the traditional which uses cubed, fresh potatoes. It’s just eggs pretty much – they’re whisked with some green onions, fresh herbs, and in this recipe, potato chips before being cooked on the stove until almost set and then finished off in the oven. Dorie says that this is best cooled to room temperature and served as finger food so that’s exactly what I did.
I really enjoyed the recipe (and so did everyone else in my house) but I didn’t think the potato chips added much overall. They got mushy and you could hardly tell they were there. I think I would rather just have scrambled eggs with a side of crispy chips! It was a fun recipe to try – and quite tasty – but I won’t be “wasting” my precious plain potato chips on it again.
As always, the members of French Fridays with Dorie won’t be sharing the recipe since we want to encourage you to check out Around My French Table but a google search might turn up a few blog posts featuring the recipe. ;)
