These crunchy cheese potato torrejas are absolutely delicious. The best thing about them is that they’re baked so they’re soft inside and crispy on the outside. Of course, you can also fry them if you prefer. They take little time to make, but you can always prepare them today and eat them next week. We’ve had them for lunch with a side green salad, but they’re also great as a side dish with chicken, beef or pork.
