My 3rd time making Tortilla Española from scratch (see most recently 13.165 Tortilla Española).
Hit and miss. The flavors were fine, enhanced by the sauce. The starchiness of the Korean potatoes worked well to provide a fluffy-creamy texture that paired nicely with the scrambled egg. However, the eggs didn’t bind sufficiently to the potatoes, so that the tortilla didn’t hold together – wondering whether I used too big of a skillet and/or not enough eggs – likely the (Korean) eggs were smaller than those contemplated in the recipe – resulting in an overly thin omelette with inadequate egg mass (see also 6.057 Tortilla Improvisado). Anyway, everyone seemed to like it.
7.8 kg of potatoes remaining.
