Tried to find a BB&B today in San Antonio. I was unsuccessful. Maybe I will hop another bus tomorrow and find one...I did buy another suitcase so I have room for it...but, I'm probably going to swing through CT on my way back to Ontario--have to pick up the Volvo--the van died right before I left, so I need to bring the Volvo back before I planned in June--either that, or I'll be hitchhiking...wonder if the MS would stop for me? I know where the BB&B is near where my BGF lives. And, I know where the W&S is in Syracuse....but, I still hope I can convince my mom to let me use her credit card and order it online for my b'day present when I get to MN.

Is there a hotel near you? Go in and ask the conciergerie if he has a list of B&B's. He won't know if you are a guest or not. And if he is smart, he won't ask. He would want you to remember how helpful he was and you would come back as a guest.

Spanish Tortilla's

Aren't you guys looking a little bored? No wait! That's me!

Here's another quicky recipe for ya'll. I cheated a smidge on this one. But hey aren't all quickies?


Spanish Tortilla

1 Large baked potato- Cooled, skinned, sliced.
1/2 Yellow onion- sliced thin
6 Large eggs - beaten
Kosher salt,fresh ground black pepper
Bacon grease

Preheat the pie maker
In a large bowl beat the eggs. Add salt and pepper.

Slice up the baked potato, add it to the egg mixture. Fold it in gently.
Soak it for 10 minutes.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of bacon grease to each section.

Add a few pinches of the sliced onions, enough to cover the bottom. Close and let them cook until soft 5 minutes. Longer if you prefer them to be caramelized.

Take the egg, potato mix, and spoon a few potatoes into the bottom. Even layer. It's ok if they break. Expect a few to..

Go back and pour in just the egg mix. Fill it to just about to the top. Close and lock.

Cook 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how dark you prefer your tortilla.

It looks like you sliced the cooked potato pretty thin. When you mixed it with the egg, did they break up into little pieces?

Tim,

Very few did. Mostly it was the end pieces. It won't matter once the eggs are poured over the top. Not even noticeable.

You could always steam the sliced potatoes. But hey, I saw that potato looking at me like "what are you going to do with me smart gurl?" Make my lunch! anything else?

Munky.

That is a smart use of your pie maker! Thanks for the recipe and the clarification.
