Potato Chip Tortilla

While most of the recipes in Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table are hits, there are bound to be a few misses.  Unfortunately, this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was a miss with us.

The recipe is called Potato Chip Tortilla.  A traditional Basque tortilla is an egg dish similar to a frittata, usually made with cubed potatoes.  We made Dorie’s take on a traditional tortilla earlier this year.  This week’s recipe replaces the cubed potatoes with crushed potato chips.

This dish didn’t do much for us.  I liked the flavors of the herbs (parsley and thyme) and green onions, but not the texture.  It was a little dry and almost rubbery.  We are used to “eggier” egg dishes.  I could see making this again as a frittata without the potato chips and adding cheese.  Our favorite part of the meal was the bacon served on the side!

I hope the other Doristas liked this better than we did!
