Tortilla de Patatas

Arguably one of the purest forms of tortilla de patatas, all you need for the Malaga version of this dish (besides the obligatory eggs and potatoes) is garlic, parsley, and some seasoning. Simple, elegant and absolutely delicious! While often eaten cold, this dish is excellent served hot as well – perfect for a winter’s day.

Baked Potato from Las Papas del Museo
