Idaho® Potato Torta

Serve a wedge of Idaho® Potato Torta with a fresh arugula salad for lunch or a light supper.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups Idaho® potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/8-inch cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups Vidalia onions, cut into 3/8-inch cubes
  • 4 - 5 cups olive oil (preferably extra virgin)
  • 6 large eggs, well beaten
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • Manchego cheese (optional)

Directions:

  1. Cover potatoes and onion with olive oil in heavy-bottom saucepot. Simmer on stovetop over medium to medium-high heat until potatoes are just tender, about 8 minutes. Occasionally, stir carefully to prevent potatoes from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  2. Drain and reserve 2 tablespoons oil. Mix potatoes and onion with eggs, parsley, salt and pepper. Preheat 10-inch nonstick saucepan on stovetop with reserved olive oil on medium heat. Pour in potatoes, onion and egg mixture, smoothing out mixture with a rubber spatula. Gently shake pan, using rubber spatula to keep mixture from sticking to sides, until eggs begin to set (approximately 5 minutes), being careful not to brown eggs.
  3. Place pan in 300° F preheated oven until mixture is completely set (12 - 15 minutes). Be careful not to overcook, as torta will be rubbery with overcooking. Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes and carefully invert onto plate or cake circle. Cool to room temperature and slice.
  4. Serve with shaved Manchego cheese.
