Key Ingredients


  • 1 pound baby white potatoes or Yukon potatoes, sliced thinly in rounds

  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped (about 1 cup)

  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided

Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Step 2

Combine potato slices, onion, ¼ cup oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss with clean hands to combine ingredients. Spread potato mixture onto prepared baking sheet.

Step 3

Bake for 35 minutes, carefully stirring with large spoon about 15 minutes into the baking time. Do not brown. Potatoes should be soft and tender.

Step 4

Whisk eggs, evaporated milk and remaining ¼ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Fold in potato mixture.

Step 5

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg and potato mixture. When edges begin to cook, push them in with a spatula. Cook for about 4 minutes or until bottom of tortilla is set. Top and center should still be uncooked.

Step 6

Flip tortilla onto a plate large enough to cover skillet. Carefully slide tortilla back into skillet using a spatula. Push sides of tortilla with spatula, making sure sides of skillet are clean and egg sticks to tortilla.

Step 7

Flip tortilla onto plate one more time. Carefully slide tortilla back into skillet using spatula. Cook for 2 minutes or until tortilla is completely cooked.

Step 8

Slide tortilla onto a serving plate. Garnish with cilantro and tomatoes. Serve immediately.
