"Huevos Rotos" with Jamón Ibérico

"Huevos Rotos" (broken eggs) with Jamón Ibérico is a dish created by the famous restaurant "Casa Lucio" and has become a basic dish for tapas in Spain.

In addition to a good Iberian ham, it can also be accompanied with other ingredients such as Manchego cheese, chorizo or cod and, of course, always with crispy white bread.

  1. Peel, wash and cut the potatoes. Add salt and fry them with plenty olive oil. When golden, remove them and drain on absorbent paper for a few minutes. Then place them on a flat plate.
  2. Fry the eggs over a medium heat with olive oil. Remove the eggs with the egg yolk still in liquid state and place them over the fried potatoes.
