My name is Jamie Bissonnette from Toro in Coppa Boston
and Toro NYC. And I am at Spoon University with
Food & Wine, and I'm gonna show you how to
hack a tortilla espanola using potato chips. [SOUND] Tortilla Espanola,
it's a typical tapas you'll see in Spain, they've got
eggs, sometimes onions and potatoes and ton of olive oil,
three simple ingredients. We'll use some salt and pepper and
we'll go with the busted out. I can get as
good as you would get in Spain. We'll take bowls
to crack our eggs. Round 1 [MUSIC] You win. Just
fold in the yolks to the whites till they look
90% homogeneous. You don't want it to look one color.
The other ingredient for this dish is going to be
potato chips. They'll kind of Get soft and still remain
a little bit crunchy. Potato chips are also my favorite
food so. Black pepper, just a little bit of salt.
Crush them up a little bit. Now you can kind
of let it go. This is where you crack open
a beer and you forget about it for about a
minute. Eggs are carmelizing. It's gonna be great. Finish him.
Here we are. Super simple tortilla Espanola with eggs potato
chips. Wanna take it up [INAUDIBLE] with you. Round two.
Take the bag bring it with you. It's the perfect
little to go bag. Walk around you're at the bar.
You can eat it right out of that. That was
so great. Carmelized, carmelized potato chips, the nutty-ness of the
egg. It's crispy, it's nutty, it's creamy, it's a perfect
late night snack. Good luck. [SOUND] Game over. [SOUND]
