Give the traditional Spanish tortilla a nutritional shake-up with this tortilla de sweet patatas!

Have you ever had a wheel of brie in your house?

Did it make you feel like you should be in some kind of support group?

What?  Oh.  Uh.  …me neither.  Averts eyes.


The night before last, I dreamt about prostate cancer.

I don’t even have a prostate.

But for some reason having a lecture on prostate health has concerned me so much for all of your safety that it gave me nightmares.  Have your PSAs checked.  Please.  For the sake of my mental health.

This was, of course, after the dream in which approximately a gazillion of my posts were stolen by another “blogger”.

In the dream, I left a comment on the site saying that I was going to take legal action against him if he didn’t remove my work within five days.  To which he responded, via email, that the whole thing was all my fault because my site has an rss feed.  And so really, I’m just asking for it to be stolen.  But not to worry!  Because he is such a nice guy with a serious love of food and because there is no personal gain for him in this at all whatsoever (aside from gaining revenue for stealing posts from me, Two Peas and Their Pod, goodLife{eats}, and smitten kitchen, among others) (and did you notice how I did that?  Actually linked to other people’s sites.  It’s because I have a serious love of food.  And I want to expose you to these awesome sites.  True story.) he would be willing to replace the “Posted By Joanne” under my recipes with “Posted By”.  As if I were a willing contributor to the site.  Still no link to my page.  By the way.  But you know, it’s in my best interest because his site is going to be getting “tons of traffic”.  Soon.  Really soon.  In his dreams, for instance.

Oh wait.  That was a tangent.  And perhaps not quite so much of a dream as I would like it to be.

But you see now why I found myself compulsively eating this tortilla.  At all hours of the day and night.



Let me explain to you how this recipe came about.

It all started when ThatGirl of Paved With Good Intentions wrote something about a thoroughly lackluster butternut squash and brie quesadilla that she had tried to make.

Brie?  Lackluster?  FOR SHAME. Were my thoughts on the subject.

So I bought some brie, fully intending to make it work.  Then, from the quesadilla, I somehow started thinking of this really dense potato frittata that my mom used to make us for dinner.  Except upon further research, I realized that what she was calling a frittata was actually a Spanish tortilla.

Then came the conclusion that sweet potatoes are always better than white potatoes.  And that five spice powder does wonders to really bring out the sweetness of the sweet potatoes.  And that a little cayenne pepper is good for the soul.

I have frenzied thoughts sometimes.  Evidence.  See above.

And now here we are.

My name is Joanne and I have been a brie addict for the last five years.  Please.  Join me.


Tortilla de (Sweet) Patatas
Give the traditional Spanish tortilla a nutritional shake-up with this tortilla de sweet patatas!
Yield: Serves 4-8
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ lb sweet potatoes, cut into thin slices
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • ½ tsp five spice powder
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 5 eggs (organic! local! free range!), beaten
  • 4 oz brie, cubed
  1. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sweet potato slices and the onion and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 15-20 minutes. In the last five minutes or so, sprinkle the five spice powder and cayenne pepper over the top of the potato/onion mix and stir until incorporated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Remove the potatoes/onions to a large bowl. Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Pour the eggs over the potato/onion mix. Stir so that they are evenly incorporated and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in the brie cubes.
  3. Reheat the pan you were using before over medium-high heat. Pour the potato/onion/egg/brie mixture into the pan. Using a spatula, push down on the potatoes as much as possible so that the layers really get squished together. When the tortilla starts to set and the top is looking a little less liquidy, about 6-8 minutes flip the tortilla onto a large plate. Slide it back into the pan so that the uncooked side is now facing the pan. Reduce the heat to low and cook until a toothpick in the center comes out dry, about 3-4 minutes.

    wowza! In general I disapprove of stealing (and I’ve run into scumbags you like mention, too) but I love that you stole this from my friend ThatGirl and replaced butternut with sweet potatoes… because I’m about to steal it from YOU and do my usual thang putting in butternut squash for sp’s!

  2. Cara says:

    oh, can I just say, you totally rock? Every time I’ve even considered making a Spanish tortilla, I get completely turned off when I see the 1/2 cup oil they call for – to serve like four people max. I cringe and walk away. I love that you’ve done this with a mere tablespoon!

  3. Pam says:

    Totally going to make this!!!! AND I will link back saying where I got it from, unless I forget, which is highly possible, and then you just need to remind me.

  4. Whatever?!! Getting down to reality, I shall not be joining you in the Brie Eaters Anonymous group. I am proud to be a Brie eater of some renown. Alas, I have none in the house and the snow is up to my ——– (figure that one out). I do have sweet potatoes and other cheeses. Hmmmm!


  5. kate says:

    That looks insanely good!!

  6. I never got all that into brie, but I could see this converting me. Sweet potatoes always are winners in my book. P.S. I have extremely bizarre dreams all the time!

  7. Simply Life says:

    oh this looks amazing – you are brillant!

  8. marla says:

    I must try something like this. I am smitten by sweet potatoes. Love that this tortilla cooks up in one pot. As for that schmoo stealing content – geesh, can’t stand that.

  9. Kristen says:

    I really have to train my brain to accept the Spanish tortilla. I live way too close to Mexico to think of anything but the flatbread. This looks wonderful, Joanne.

  10. jenna laughs says:

    Oh. My. Gosh. Can I please have this sitting in front of me right now? I love brie – it’s yummy and melty and delicious. It’s also an original recipe – bravo, lady!

  11. Amy says:

    I’ve said it before, and…. “stealing is so 7th grade.” Hm. So maybe this guy is actually in the 7th grade? I’d figure out where he lives and make my dog poop on his lawn. OR you can accept it as the highest form of flattery?

    Nah. I’d be pissed. And drown my anger in a wheel of brie. Definitely.

  12. gotnomilk says:

    Wow, that looks beautiful. I can almost taste it!

  13. Candace says:

    I’ve got to make this. It looks soooooo good. I was going to make Spicy Sweet Potato and Pasta but now I’m not so sure. I might have to make this first. I definitely did not know about the 5 Spice Powder and Sweet Potatoes. I will definitely add that to the Spicy Sweet Potato and Pasta if and when I try it.

  14. Laura says:

    I love this post and I love this recipe! I can’t wait to try it because really sweet potatoes are always better than any other kind! Thanks for sharing!

  15. Faith says:

    I think I might need a wheel of brie in my fridge, lol! Love your thought process in developing this recipe, Joanne! It looks fantastic!

  16. Lyndsey says:

    Oh my what an interesting way to use bries. I need to join a group on just that “new ways to use brie” of course it so good just on it’s own too! I did enjoy seeing how this amazingly beautiful and I’m sure filling dish came to be! Thanks for sharing! 😀

  17. This comment has been removed by the author.

  18. Dear Joanne, this is my recipe, I already thought of it but didn’t post it yet. In your dreams you stole it from me:)

    By the way how do you know it was a him?

    On a positive note if someone steals your work its an endorsement of high quality.

  19. Tasha says:

    I want to comment about the situation of having your posts stolen without so much as a link back, but I am so momentarily starstuck by this recipe…my brain can only process “brie and sweet potatoes” right now. It seriously sounds amazing in every way! (And I do hope you can get the other part resolved quickly.)

  20. I too am a brie addict. Happy to know I am not alone in this world. This recipe is simply awesome…beautiful use of sweet potatoes and cheese! Good work girl!

  21. This post had a lot of frenetic energy. With good reason, that “dream” would rile me up, too. The criss-crossed chives are like two swords, ready to fight it out with the content thief. (I think I’m off on a tangent of my own.) Looks gorgeous, the tortilla. Love that mix of flavors.

  22. janet says:

    Love it, Joanne! Hypomanic a tad? 😛

    I love how there is little oil because Spanish tortillas typically have gobs of it. 🙂

    Thanks for bringing it to WHB!

  23. I can’t believe this dude is stealing all this content. Surely HE must be dreaming. I hope it all gets straightened out soon!

    Clearly potatoes and cheese is the best way to solve this problem…

  24. I love this variation! I grew up in Spain and hence had a LOT of tortilla de patata. It’s one of my favorite foods, and this looks like such a great spin.

  25. Hannah says:

    Ugh, I am craving all things carb-filled right now and I could probably eat this whole thing in one sitting. Naturally, I’m thinking pureed tofu instead of eggs, and vegan cheese, but it should be an easy switch… This sounds like a slice of sweet potato heaven!

  26. Catherine says:

    This looks! Remember that old jingle? Well, perhaps you are too young..anyway I love your sweet potato tortilla…I love sweet potatoes as dessert or part of the main course…Blessings, Catherine

  27. Kristin says:

    I am not a huge fan of brie but this does look fantastic.

  28. Mo Diva says:

    Who is this douche stealing your shit! I wanna punch him in the prostate.
    UNfortunately, a lot of people dont realize how delicate these topics are… as bloggers I think we all have beena victim of some sort of wrong doing… but lets try to make hte best of it. My impersonator (that litte Bit…nevermind) has opened doors for me to build great relationships with the people she scammed. a lot of them are working with me now (and love the REAL me because I am so much more professional than the 17 year old moocher) i digress… you put it out there and now if i see it im gonna call him out. I love you. have a slice of that deliciousness and it should be over soon.
    better yet, save two pieces, i will come over and we will be merry. i will cough and be asthmatic, and you will talk about cheese while i sweat with will power to stay away from the phlegm maker.

  29. polwig says:

    I have been a brie addict for too long to count. the tortilla looks amazing.

  30. Someone sounds like a big ol’ jerk. I hope you gave it to him good!! My all-time favorite Spanish dish is the Spanish tortilla. When I studied in Spain for a summer in college, I asked my house mom to make it for me nearly every day! I imagine I’d love this version too. I’m in total agreement that sweet potatoes make every potato dish better!

  31. Dont worry about the man-blogger. Ive had the same thing happen to me, and I just remind myself that it doesnt matter. Im not in this for traffic or monetary gain, merely the pleasure of sharing recipes and making a few friends.

    This recipe is awesome and I WILL make it.

  32. That Girl says:

    Seriously, when I saw the title I got SO excited because I knew if anyone could salvage that quesadilla it would be you (or Cara)! And as for the content stealer, you let me know if you need a nicely worded letter on letter head using words like “appropriation” and “intellectual property.”

  33. elra says:

    Love sweet potato, healthy, sweet and delicious. Wonderful idea Joanne.

  34. You don’t know how happy I was to get to the end of the post and find out this recipe looks like it could be pretty darn delicious without the brie! I’m sure it adds a bit, but really, this egg dish can hold it’s own. I mean, you almost lost me on that tangent, so I was happy with the reward for my perserverence 🙂

  35. I saw a few of my photos on someone’s site but they were kind enough to remove them. I really hate it when people try to prove they are right, when they are wrong. Anyway, this dish looks scrumptious, I would easily steal THAT off you!

  36. This sounds really good for sure, a very unique combination of sweet potatoes and brie and I love the 5 spice here too, excellent!

  37. Kimberley says:

    I’m confused …. so the stealing really happened? That sucks. Seems so rampant in the blogging world, which is a pity. Hope that’s resolved quickly. 🙂

    On a brighter note, I love what you’ve done with this Spanish tortilla! Great idea.

  38. Please let me know if you see any of us regulars visiting this site, I wouldn’t want to attribute to his “high traffic”.

    So are the sweet potatoes like the tortillas? It sounds really good and very simple. I have to admit though, I’ve never had brie. Don’t hate me! 🙂

  39. So amazing looking—really; you are a genius! I’ve only had my photos stolen at this point, but even that made me CRAZY! I had sent an email that I didn’t mind him using my photos as long as he credited me with the photos and linked to my site. No answer. AAAAGGGGHHH! It’s a lot like those annoying people who cheat at online games such as Scrabble by using seven-letter word programs. Why, one has to wonder? What IS the real gain in this? Good luck. No more bad dreams—I’ll send my son’s dream catcher your way! 🙂

  40. I bought a 1kg wheel of brie for the holidays – I must definitely be in your camp!
    Great idea for the tortilla. I haven’t made a Spanish style one before but it is on the list.
    Give that dude the stomping he so clearly needs. 😉

  41. Swathi says:

    Delicious, awesome creations, there are lot lazy people who willing to steal others work without even have single guilt. I too experienced not from other blogger but from a famous local newspaper in India.

  42. This is a beautiful and delicious looking dish and a positively hysterical post. I consider Brie one of the most luxurious indulgences ever. This looks awesome.

  43. Megan says:

    I am a brie addict too, and this tortilla sounds incredible.

    So sorry about your stolen content — truly a nightmare.

  44. I’m experimenting in vegetarianism, so this really piques my interest. That and I think sweet potatoes should be their own food group. Love ’em.

  45. Corina says:

    This looks so much more colourful than a normal tortilla. I’m a big tortilla fan so I’ll definately make this.

  46. This is definitely a really cool twist on Tortilla Espanola! It’s notoriously NOT one of my favorite dishes (usually too bland), but this looks the opposite of bland! And BTW, you could totally run down that blog-stealer, you marathon runner, you!

  47. Boo to stupid people.

    Yum to this recipe. I’m not a brie fan but I can be a convert…

  48. Stella says:

    Yum, Joanne! This looks so good. Ooh, and, no, I’ve never had a wheel of brie;)

  49. Totally making this – I don’t know why I’ve never thought to use sweet potato in a tortilla instead of white potatoes – much better idea! Great idea using five spice and cayenne as well – you’re a freakin’ genius, that’s what you are!
    Sue 🙂

  50. You could have at least linked to his site so we could all go and reprimand him! What a jerk not knowing the rules of giving credit.

    Oh, and I am a brie lover too. Have you ever tried d’Affinois? Oh mmm gee!

    This sounds delicious!

  51. Wait, what? What does that mean you have RSS so your stuff is easier to steal or what? I don’t get some people.
    I. heart. brie. yum me! I will join in your support group and bring the wine! 😉
    You always crack me up to bits! I work in surgery so I totally feel ya about weird paranoia medical conditions! 😉
    This is another one I will most def be trying!
    love the chinese 5 spice w cayenne! Yessss!

  52. Raina says:

    That was some When I was a hairdresser, I used to have dreams that I gave people really bad

    Your tortilla looks so good. I would have thought it was a frittata too. With the brie in it and the sweet potatoes and spices…wow..that is so yum!

  53. daphne says:

    haha, u need to sleep better joanne! lol but i am a fan of brie and could eat too much of it….so maybe in this way, i can justify having more than a bite…

  54. Ada says:

    Thanks for the prostate PSA! Someone close to me is currently battling the cancer which totally could have been prevented with early detection

    Um, Tortilla de Sweet Potatas??? That sounds totally awesome.

  55. teresa says:

    brie and butternut squash as a couple? they look gooood together. what a tasty dish!

  56. Oooh, I have never though to make a tortilla with sweet potatoes! I’m not sure they are ALWAYS better but they sure do look lovely in this dish. And the 5 spice pwder is genius!

  57. Pam says:

    I am Pam and I too am a brie addict. I am also now a tortilla with sweet potato addict… how amazing does this look! Lord woman.

    Anyway, I too have had nearly every post stolen from scrapers… they suck. I started putting For the Love of all over my recipes and put it on my pictures too so when they do steal my recipes, at least I have my name everywhere for people to see.

  58. Cathy says:

    Yum! I love brie also – the best is a wedge, sliced in half, filled with fig spread, and topped with hazelnuts! It could be my meal 3 times a day!

    Glad to hear you’re reading about prostate cancer for education, not for family reasons!

  59. Mari says:

    oh how I have missed looking at all the wonderful things you create! I miss you chickie!!!!!

  60. Lizzy says:

    Melted Brie is a bad addiction of mine. Especially baked brie. This recipe looks AMAZING!!! And I’m really loving sweet potatoes lately : )

  61. Dawn says:

    BRIE and SWEET POTATOES? Be still my heart.

  62. Mary says:

    This is the kind of dish that I find enormously appealing. This looks delicious, Joanne. I hope you have a great evening. Blessings…Mary

  63. sweetlife says:

    a perfect combo brie and sweet potaotes…yummy, sorry about that weirdo, how retarded..get your own life!!

  64. sophia says:

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!! I just used up my last wedge of brie!!!!!!! AAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And that was like 5 minutes ago!!! dsjkbfksjdfdj!!!!!!

  65. Velva says:

    So, this what we should be doing with a wheel of brie-where have I been? This looks wonderful.


  66. Natalie says:

    brie and sweet potatoes? aka 2 of the world’s best foods? come make this for me puuuulease!

  67. Muneeba says:

    u are an original through n through, and if any more dream blogger thiefs give u a hard time, u unleash ME on them! I’ll rip em a good one!
    PS: I’ve never owned a wheel of brie. But now I’m planning on it 🙂

  68. Kim says:

    Okay, now I’m really curious whose stealing your posts? And, I really don’t get why people would do that.

    If there is anything that can help you forget about your woes then it would be this tortilla, which looks insanely delicious by the way. I think you really have a knack for coming up with original recipes.

  69. yikes! and don’t even post a link of his site, i don’t wanna give even 1 hit of traffic to this guy

  70. theUngourmet says:

    In the past few years I have rediscovered sweet potatoes. For years I hated them, only eating that God awful marshmallow mess during the holidays. This recipe looks like another winner for me to try.

    Crazy Dreams!!

  71. Hey i made a tortilla on Sunday too:-)
    But not with sweet potatoes:-))
    I know how good sweet potatoes are + excellent for the skin too and i must start having lods of these!
    UR tortilla is making me soooo hungry babe and i mus have a repeat this sunday!
    And i used exactly the same eggs as u did , 5 , organic , local , free range , but the ones here are small!
    U have come up with a wonderful recipe , i was makn it for FFwD, but added whatever i had at hand for the recipe:-)))

  72. Katerina says:

    It hasn’t happened to me but if it did I would have been very angry. You follow me and you know that even if I make tons of changes in one recipe I always mention the original source of inspiration. So I am thinking if I can do that I guess everyone can. I hate it when it happens, but these people on the net are exactly the same people who still in real life too. Your dish is very pioneering and I love the combo’s of tastes.

  73. grace says:

    the first step is admitting you have a problem–kudos. 🙂
    now, i don’t dream about blogging, but i do dream about food, and cheese is involved more often than not. i like what you’ve done here.

  74. Barbara says:

    My dad didn’t have anything checked, ever, and by the time he was diagnosed, prostate cancer had spread to the bone. So I tell my boys…have everything checked, every year!

    Now I don’t have a brie addiction, but I do have a sweet potato addiction. Count me in!

  75. Oh yes, sweet potaters are much much better – why must you tempt me so ;). Ugh how terrible of that guy to blatantly steal and even try to blame it on you (the gall!). Hope all that works out for the best and you get an apology outta him at the very least!

  76. this is a neat dish and you will be such a good doctor

  77. Wow- I am like the 77th comment so who knows if you even see this but your photos are amazing and that pie looks so delicious I can’t even explain how my stomach is growling. My husband would go crazy for this. Might just surprise him with it next week! Thanks girl

  78. Ohh very yum! I’ve made a Spanish Tortilla before with regular potatoes, and I loved it. I bet sweet potatoes would be even better!

    I’m sorry someone stole your content 🙁 Did they eventually remove it from their site??

  79. it looks worth trying, very tempting dish

  80. Hahaha…you have the craziest dreams! So funny!

    Camila F.

  81. I’d be happy to join you in your brie addiction, and five spice powder with sweet potatoes does sound perfect. The crispy top on your tortilla looks great!

  82. Sorry you have to deal with someone taking your goods. Why do people have to do that? It probably wouldn’t be a good idea to virtually throw a tortilla in his face, so you might as well eat it all.

  83. I really have to laugh when I was reading you having dreamed about “prostate cancer”… are a woman with wild imagination. Yes, it is a compliment. :-))
    I used to eat lots of brie, just with some Loire valley its buttery creaminess. This tortilla de sweet patatas must have tasted heavenly.

  84. aipi says:

    That looks spectacular! Thanks for a gorgeous post!

    US Masala

  85. Emily says:

    Holy cow, this looks amazing! I adore sweet potatoes.

  86. Great idea using sweet potatoes instead of potatoes! Love this!

  87. Looks absolutely delicious! would love to have a slice right now.

  88. Claudia says:

    Too bad that guy is not available for us all to kick his a–.

    That tortilla could be the Spanish version of Okonomiyaki. And, I think I like it better. Especially as it contains Brie. Oh yes.

  89. Acky says:

    Ciao Joanne! Lovely recipe, I also like the photo of the bowl with all ingredients mixed! yummy!

  90. chrysta says:

    Looks awesome hon! I love your site as well! I used to read your site all the time last year then I fell away from blogging. But Im back at it and sssooo happy to see gorgeous pics again!

  91. I don’t even know what to say. Brilliant, Joanne. Does it taste like dinner or dessert? It looks savoury, but sounds too decadent to be eaten as a main. I have made the Spanish omelet. YUM. This does look deadly and I actually have ALL of the ingredients as we speak. My name is Valerie – and gladly, I will join you!

  92. Hi Joanne… I’m a brie addict, too. 🙂 AND a sweet potato addict. And this here is my dream come true!


  93. I dream of being forced to cook for KingKong ..I really hope it remains a dream only.My husband will love this tortilla a lot ..I hope I ll be able to reproduce it for him some day.Looks really yum!

  94. I think I could easily eat that whole pan. Sadly, this makes me feel kinda proud 🙂

  95. La Liz says:

    You have more creativity in your fifth metacarpal than that guy-who-won’t-link has in his entire corporal presence.

    Fantastico recipe! Carrots and sweet potatoes–excellent! This is a Beta Carotene Blowout, utterly delicious-looking and accessible to us mortal cooks (like me). Thanks!

  96. Shari says:

    This is what dreams are made of! This recipe is amazing! Brie is the best (and even though I am lactose intolerant I can’t get enough of it)…although my boyfriend probably doesn’t appreciate my requests at 4am in the morning to rub my belly! Too bad – I’m addicted too!!

    Shari from

  97. Tortilla with sweet potatoes!! I am sold!

  98. Julie says:

    can i tell you i had a dream the other night that i had a giant high school reunion that was in a spin class hahaha i think it was becasue i missed my wednesday morning spin class so i literally dreamt about it

  99. girlichef says:

    I thought I’d seen you at meetings. I was the one across the room with the hat pulled low over my eyes…sneaking bites of brie when no one was looking. And…for real!? How did you find the perpetrator? Did somebody point him out or did you run across it yourself? I always wonder if any of my stuff is floating around out there without me knowing it. Shame on him. There’s plenty of food to go around. No need to steal. This looks flippin’ amazing, btw. {drums fingers sneakily}

  100. I was going to tell you that you should really work to get more traffic. Doesn’t look like you have enough here 😉 Sorry you’re going through that, love. That stinks!

    But looking at the more exciting part of this post… I’m LOVING this original recipe of yours. Some of my favorite ingredients (one would be brie) all in one dish!

  101. Reeni says:

    The same thing happened to me! That’s why I shortened my RSS – which I hated doing – it’s like punishing my readers. I love your twist with the brie and sweet potatoes. Completely delicious!

  102. Johanna GGG says:

    Looks delicious – the tortilla not the idiot trying to steal your feeds – I had this happen once and I was made to feel like it was my fault for having rss feed – aren’t we silly putting content on the web 🙂

  103. Allison says:

    I can’t be left alone in a room with a slice of brie. I may not steal your content but, I would steal a bite or two of this when you were not looking. Delicious!

  104. Shannon says:

    oh. my. golly. i think you’re right. sweet potatoes are always better 🙂 i need to make this… and soon. knocked this one out of the park 😉

    i’m sorry to hear about your postings… hope the situation has been rectified!

  105. Miriam says:

    Is someone really stealing your work? That’s horrible, I’m truly sorry. I keep trying to convince myself that people are honest and try to do the right things and then I hear stories like that and it makes me sad. Your work really is wonderful! I enjoy reading your posts, they make me smile and your recipes are always so beautiful. Despite people being awful, I hope your weekend is a very happy one :).

  106. Monet says:

    Sweet potatoes, brie and eggs…yes, you have me sold. Hook, line and…(I’m actually not sure how this is supposed to end! 🙂 Thank you for sharing yet another delicious and beautiful recipe. I hope you have a fabulous Friday and a relaxing weekend!
    PS. Keep those blog thiefs away!

  107. Such a gorgeous dish–I just need a fork and a glass of wine with it and I’d be happy. 😉

  108. ann says:

    110 comments!!! You don’t need me to tell you that you rock. But I have to because you seriously do. Amazing, AGAIN!

  109. Waw, Joanne!! This sweet potato & brie frittata looks just fabulous, my friend! Just look at that stylish prenetation too!

    I am so going to make this this evening ofr as brunch for sunday!

  110. Victoria says:

    I love this variation on tortilla espanola!! Sweet potatoes and brie?? This is sooooo much better!

    And the first step is admitting you have a problem 🙂

  111. Mo 'Betta says:

    I can’t believe some people are so lame that they steal content from another site. What a schmuck.

  112. Brie and sweet potatoes? Oh yes, please! I know this had to be delectable. 🙂

  113. Eliana says:

    I have never seen sweet potatoes look this good. Of course, because you hadn’t made them. This looks stunning Joanne.

    Ugh, sorry you’ve been having to deal with that creep – so frustrating!

    On the bright side, yay for an original – it looks so tasty Joanne!

    Dreaming about food blogging and prostrates…I think you may have finally done it. You’ve gone and lost your ever loving mind! 😉 The dude’s name wasn’t Judith…errr…..JUDE Griggs was it?

    Honestly Monica…..(His reaction reminded me of that)

    Have a great weekend, Joanne!

  116. This looks interesting. We must be on the same I made tortilla de patata last night, and it was so simple and satisfying. I also happened to make baked brie, one of the few cravings experienced over the past few months with this bun in the oven. This is a novel and good idea.

  117. I always have wheel of brie in my house 😉 I am shocked about your thief, I am not sure why I’m shocked but the arrogance. You seriously need to give us his link so we can blast complaints…
    Oh, and this is so delicious, loving the sweet potatoes 🙂

  118. Oh, such a great idea! Why didn’t I think of this?! Love sweet potatoes, so subbing that for potatoes in tortilla — yummilicious.

    Huh. I survived on tortillas when we did our honeymoon in Spain. I have never successfully made them at home. They have turned out, but none tasted like they did in hill villages in Andalusia. Sigh. So maybe I should just not even try to compete with those memories and use the humble sweet potato instead! I love this idea Joanne.

    My first attempt at a Spanish tortilla did not yield an appetizing result. Your sweet potato version however, looks scrumptious. It may prompt me to try my hand at this again soon.

  121. Kevin says:

    What a great way to enjoy some sweet potatoes!

  122. Marisa says:

    Man alive that looks good! And yes, how the heck could anything be bad with brie?

    PS: The orange of the US sweet potato always looks so pretty to me. We’re stuck with boring old yellow-beige ones. :-/

  123. Love this twist you did on a Spanish tortilla! Especially the brie mmm.

    so I have now made 3 of your recipes this week…. and they were all amazing. this one is probably my favorite, served with roast asparagus with shaved parmesan.
    had a little trouble flipping, so next time I will probably just pop it in the oven for the last 5 minutes rather than flipping it over. thanks for the great recipes!
