Back in March I wrote about the many steps it takes to make ONE tortilla de patatas and this summer my family asked me to make one for them. I was eager for them to be able to try this traditional Spanish dish, however, my family is quite large (therefore, just ONE tortilla de patatas wouldn’t be enough). My mom then reminded me that I could use her KitchenAid mixer attachment to help slice the potatoes! She encouraged me to make them without even peeling the potatoes which I never thought to do since in Spain people peel virtually everything (apples, pears, peaches, etc) before eating them. So I decided to go for it: leaving the peel of the potatoes was going to save me a lot of work!
So I set myself up for slicing the potatoes with the help of the KitchenAid mixer:
Slicing up the potatoes was SOOOOOOOOOO easy thanks to the KitchenAid!
Potatoes sliced & onions diced!
My dad helped me fry all the potatoes… we had a great production line going on!
My first KitchenAid utensil (and most recent new kitchen “toy”) came in handy when frying the potatoes in the hot oil.
This is just one of four tortillas cooking!
I think it took around 4 or 5 hours to make them all for the family party that day!
But it was time well spent!
Everyone loved them!!!!
