Two triangular eggy potato servings surrounded by tomatoes and herbs

Great Served Hot or Cold

In Mexico, as we’ve come to learn, the tortilla is a staple corn or flour flatbread, made quick and consumed even quicker. But don’t ask for a tortilla to go with your salsa in Spain unless you want this flavorful egg dish—and you just might. The thin Spanish frittata calls for rich flavors and a dense texture courtesy of potatoes, and can be served straight from the oven or cold as a first course.
