Transcript:How to Flip a Spanish Tortilla

My name is Tony Sierra, and today we're going to learn two ways to flip a tortilla espanola, Spanish Potato Omelet.

First Method of Flipping Spanish Tortilla

After we have cooked the tortilla on one side for about 4 minutes, the egg has cooked around the sides, and the bottom is browned, it's time to flip the tortilla. One way of flipping the tortilla is by placing a dinner plate over the frying pan and flipping it over. Now, we just slide the tortilla back into the frying pan.

Second Method of Flipping Spanish Tortilla

Another way of flipping the tortilla - and probably easier - is by sliding the tortilla onto a dinner plate, covering it with an identical plate and flipping it over. Now, we just slide the tortilla back into the frying pan. Now, we return to the stove and finish cooking the tortilla.
