Tortilla Espanola With a Twist

Brady Evans with her own twist on the classic Spanish mix of potatoes, eggs, and onions in delicious layers.
By Brady Evans

A Twitter friend came to the rescue on this one.  I was up extra early due to the time change (6:45am) and my comrade was up extra early to her infant child.  I was craving a breakfast and sent out an S.O.S. for a potato egg bake.  She led me to her blog.  And I found exactly what I was looking for there.

Eggs and potatoes are a delicious combination and while my husband was a little skeptical of the addition of sweet potatoes, he was pleasantly surprised.  I served this as an easy breakfast because it is delicious warm or room temperature.  It would also make a great side dish for dinner.
