Today Luisa (author of Cooking with my Carmela ), brings us the recipe to prepare revolconas potatoes. Maybe it sounds more like scrambled potatoes, or shaken potatoes (read shakes) or stirred. Use the title you prefer, revolconas potatoes are a dish full of flavor, which everyone at home will enjoy.

Undoubtedly, revolconas potatoes are a classic of our gastronomy. If you like boiled potatoes and paprika, this dish will be a star in your house; but the ingredients are not left here: one of them is the famous torreznos or bacon, since it is a typical dish of shepherds and ramaderos.

Today you will find revolconas potatoes as a tapa or portion in many restaurants and bars in the Castilla area. Here in the South, they are not very well known, but I assure you that at home they are now the star dish on some Sundays.

If you want, to curl the curl, you can present them with a fried egg on the side, and then yes, they will make you wave. It is a dish that comes in handy to get the cold out of the body (and to enjoy too, which we deserve!).

Now we go with the recipe that is very simple.

Ingredients (for 4 people)

  • 1 medium potato per person (4 units)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of sweet paprika from la vera and a pinch of hot pepper
  • 150g of fried bacon
  • Salt and extra virgin olive oil


  1. First, cut and peel the potatoes, cook in plenty of water with the bay leaf, until tender. Drain, reserving the cooking water.
  2. Meanwhile, in a frying pan , fry the bacon until crispy. Reserve.
  3. In the same pan, add a couple of tablespoons of oil and fry the garlic without browning. Add the paprika and then a glass of water from the previous cooking, being careful not to splash. Now add the potatoes, mix everything so that the potato is impregnated with everything. All that remains is to stir and leave to your liking, if you see that they are dry, add a little more water.
  4. As for the texture, the potato has to be mashed but not mashed.
  5. Finally add the bacon, unite everything and serve. I have used the mini-cocottes, they are the perfect size for a portion and they look beautiful on the table.

Hola Francisco, nos quedamos con tu aportación!!! Muchas gracias por tu comentario, estamos de acuerdo en que será un festín :) Un saludo!


Hola, la receta digamos que esta bien en general, pero nunca pondría panceta, si no que serian unos buenos torreznos, bien pequeños o mas largas y anchos siempre al gusto, pero que tengan chicha, haciendose con una buena corteza para que cruja, es un festín de plato.
