Video: Quick potato omelettes: a catastrophe, two ‘meh’ and a discovery

The potato omelette is a dish that we have more than exploited: we have talked about its perfect formula, we have made it live, we have analyzed its packaged versions, told where they make it best and criticized the places where it is massacred. What we have never done is try the quick versions of the recipe that circulate on the internet, and that is what today’s Comidistest is about.

We prepare four tortillas accelerated potato – Ferran Adrià’s chips, one with a pressure cooker from the blog Mercado Calabajío, another with microwave, and a last with mashed potato. One of the recipes seemed a horror to us and two left us a bit indifferent, but the other one we were enthusiastic about. If you want to know what it was, you will have to watch the video above. Take bait! Long live the clickbait! Muahahahahahahaha!
