Baked eggs and chorizo - Spanish inspired Huevos a la Flamenca
Sunday brunch just got better with this my version of the Spanish inspired dish Huevos a La Flamenca, that is made with smoky chorizo, green peas, peppers and runny egg to dip in. All baked into perfection, Oh my so yummy, will make you crave for more and more.
Runny eggs cooked in tomato rich sauce with Spanish chorizo, peppers and spices, it’s a perfect combination of all simple ingredients together. When you dip that toasted sourdough bread into the egg, the golden colour of the egg still runny and combined with chorizo and spices is such a wonderful way to enjoy a delicious breakfast or brunch together as a family.
The original traditional recipe originated in Andalusia, SourthenSpanish region and is made with Serrano ham, potatoes and green peas served in a small terracotta bowl or a tapas bowl, I have modified this using ingredients that are easily available in all supermarkets.
Make sure to use good quality ingredients, like a good quality of extra virgin olive oil for this recipe, it adds more flavour and taste. You can use any neutral oil like sunflower or vegetable oil. However I recommend using Spanish extra virgin olive oil like the one I have used is linked here.
It’s such a easy and simple dish to make but the outcome is so yummy. I made this with my little 3 month old then, who is 20 months now asleep behind me :D so you can imagine it’s not a complicated one at all.
It’s quite similar to Shakshuka except in this recipe I have used Spanish chorizo and green peas, the method is the same. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
