Once again Nana has made it in before the deadline while I spent last Saturday cooking the pork (was to be posted by last Friday). I beleive this is going to be the holiday trend of playing "catch up" around here. But I have been enjoying the early results of Nana's cooking - especially the creme brulee, which we will post on another French Friday !
***(update- I "caught up" this morning and added the results to the bottom of this post......)
Per Nana :
I had to make this potato chip tortilla just to prove
to myself that it wasn't as wacky as it sounds.
The recipe is extremely simple and using the chips makes
short work of the traditional Basque tortilla.
After mixing the eggs with the rest of the ingredients,
I added this to the potato chips and stirred.
I did think the mixture was a bit too thick so I
added an additional egg which really helped.
The cooking method was nice, starting on top of
the stove and finishing the tortilla under the broiler.
I was pleased with the results, and hubby and
I both enjoyed it.
As far as I'm concerned, the flavors were perfect.
I will definitely do this one again.
Chard-stuffed pork roast anyone ?
Nana's results were so beautiful (and delicious) that
I had to make this one right away, even if I missed
the French Friday deadline.
I was very curious about all the flavors that were combined
for the stuffing and also happy to get to use the cardamom
that does not make it out of the spice drawer often enough.
Raisins and red pepper flakes ? Not a typical combo.
And just like Nana, I had to use skewers since we left
our kitchen twine in Vermont. Twine would have been best.
The flavors were lovely but I mostly came away
wondering why I do not serve pork roast more often
when I have company- since this was a fairly
impressive looking dish for very little effort.
As usual, Dorie inspires us once again.
Now to make that tortilla dish for breakfast tomorrow.....
Update- I was not kidding about making it for breakfast.
It was fabulous. You know you are profoundly behind when
you don't even read the recipe to realize it was a quick
and easy potato chip omelet. A keeper for sure !
Would the chips be covered...they were !
Now on to the creme brulee ! Kidding.
