Celebrating is about sharing, telling stories, talking. It's about eating a piece of cake that a friend made for you, having a glass of wine or savoring a cup of coffee. It's that unknown sensation that doesn't let you get up from the table after eating. It's much more than just placing silverware and plates on a table, it's creating an ambience, a style, a sensation, an unforgettable memory.

Mini tortilla de patatas



These are mini tortillas Españolas that are great for hors d'oeuvres and tapas.



I used a silicone baking cups for mini cupcakes.



You can add different toppings for decoration like grilled red peppers, anchovies, Manchego cheese, olives, chorizo or just leave it plain.



This was for a Sunday brunch where I also made pasta with cherry tomatoes & basil and panko breaded chicken breast. 



For the breaded chicken breast I made several sauces to choose from, they were like dips. Everybody liked the curry mayonnaise, the fig with caramelized onions and the chipotle sauce.
Tortilla Española
Ingredients:
6-8 eggs
6-8 potatoes
I onion
2 garlic cloves minced
olive oil
Salt and pepper
Preparation:
I boiled the potatoes to make everything easier and faster. I cooked the chopped onion and garlic in olive oil until they were tender. I cut the potatoes into small pieces, then added them to the olive oil and smashed them together while cooking with the onion and garlic. I removed them from the stove and mixed all of it in a bowl with the whisked egg seasoned with salt and pepper.

Pour the mixture on the cupcake baking tray and bake approximately for about 15 to 20 minutes.

A perfect bite to follow a Sangria...

What a great idea to serve tortilla! I love tortilla de patatas and I often make the "Italian version" of it, but I had not thought of making mini individual servings of it! They look so cute!

I had friends over the other night, they came to watch the soccer game which I am not fond of it, but anyway I set the table with appetizers wine and small bites. Of course I did the mini tortillas again, this time I used a silicone mini muffin pan and it worked perfectly they were absolutely fabulous! I sprinkle some of them with peppercorn blend & olive oil, others with just tiny pieces of green and black olives. You must try it....
