Posted for Zaar World Tour II, this simple Chilean dish is from Eliana Parra and Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant. Serve it with Salsa De Cilantro (Pebre) Salsa De Cilantro - Pebre and, even though the recipe does not call for it, top it with your favorite grated cheese.
- Wash and peel (peeling is optional) potatoes; slice into 1/4" rounds.
- Heat oil in heavy frypan until very hot, but not smoking; fry potatoes for 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden-brown; remove potatoes to absorbent paper to drain.
- Beat eggs well with parsley; add salt and pepper to taste; add the drained potatoes.
- Discard all but 3 tablespoons of the oil from the frypan; reheat if necessary; slowly pour egg-potato mixture into the pan; distribute the potatoes evenly; cover frypan and cook omelet for 4 minutes on medium-low heat; turn omelet over and cook, covered, another 4 minutes; top with some grated cheese, if desired, to melt during the last couple of minutes in frypan; carefully remove omelet from pan and cut into 4 servings.
Good, but kind of greasy for our tastes even after draining the potatoes well. Next time I will boil the potatoes and lightly pan fry instead of deep frying. In itself, this is kind of bland, luckily I tried the recommended cilantro salsa and now THAT was terrific!
Dishes like this are among my most favourite to fix for a brunch meal because they're tasty, satisfying & so easy to fix. I made it as a breakfast burrito, added fresh chives & cheese & served w/salsa on the side. Yum - My kind of comfort food! Will know tonite if I got a good pic. Thx for posting.
This was sooo good. DH helped me by cutting the potatoes cause me and knives don't mix. But, I did add some onion cause I love onion and we fried the taters really crispy. This with the salad we made tonight(late tonight)was perfect. Thanks for a quick meal.
