7 large eggs
1 bag nice plain potato chips (6.7 oz)
2 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. olive oil
Break 6 eggs into a mixing bowl. Add 2/3 of the bag of chips and stir, crushing them a little as you blend the eggs together. Allow the mixture to sit until the chips absorb most of the egg, about 5 minutes. Beat the remaining egg in a small bowl and add it to the egg-chip mixture. Add the salt.
Heat 2 tbsp. of oil in a small saute pan (no more than 6″ in diameter), over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and stir briskly a few times with a wooden spoon to prevent them from sticking. Shake the pan in a circular motion for 10 seconds to keep the mixture loose as the eggs start to stick together. Lower the temperature and cook for 1 minute more.
Place a plate over the pan and invert the pan/plate so the tortilla winds up on the plate, raw side down. If the pan looks dry, add the last 2 tbsp. of olive oil. Return the tortilla to the pan by sliding it back in, raw side down. Cook for another 60 seconds, until the bottom is fully set.
Slide onto a clean serving plate, garnish with a sprinkle of salt and maybe a few more chips.
