Today: Watch Kristen Miglore and Erin McDowell create a Spanish-ish tortilla without a recipe.


This is not quite a Spanish tortilla, but it has all the desirable qualities of one—with a little less work. In this video, Executive Editor Kristen Miglore and Test Kitchen Manager Erin McDowell riff on the classic Spanish tortilla. Their rendition involves fewer worrisome flips of a cast-iron pan and a slight variation on cooking the ingredients, but yields the same texture and beautifully stacked layers of egg, onion, and potato you want from a Spanish tortilla.
