This recipe is very simple, but flipping the torta takes a bit of practice. Don't get discouraged, take your time, and be gentle. It may take more than one time, but you'll get it eventually. Once you give this dish a try the practice wont be an issue because you'll be craving a slice every Sunday morning.
'Omelettes' on Serious Eats
Any oyster lover's search to eat more oysters in the morning will inevitably lead them to the Hangtown Fry. Traditionally this dish is more of a scramble than an omelet, but when I'm cooking an oyster in the morning already, it seems silly to not toss it in some cornmeal and then gently fry it in bacon fat.
This is a nice, light omelette that makes a perfect summer lunch. There is a delicate contrast between the fluffy eggs, tangy cheese, and fresh, sweet basil.
Bacon and hash brown lovers will love this omelette—it's three of the best breakfast foods in one. I love how the fried potatoes add crunch and the bacon imparts a meaty, smokey flavor.
This is a perfect example of how far a few ingredients can take you. The key to this omelette is Gruyère cheese. It melts beautifully, and its flavorful, stinky nature makes it the perfect match for grassy, oniony chives.
