Eggs in Flames - Spain

Breakfast in Spain is usually a simple thing. Mostly a simple coffee and toast with jam (peach jam!). 
But there are always the exceptions, like churros served with chocolate (a recipe will follow later) or the following spicy egg dish. 

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground chili powder
  • 1 can peeled tomatoes 
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 6 eggs
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350°F (160°C)
Heat the oil in a medium skillet. Sauté the onions until soft and slightly brown. 
Add the bell pepper and chili powder and cook for a couple of minutes. 
Add the tomatoes and tomato paste and let simmer for 10 minutes over low heat. Stir frequently. 
Pour the tomato mixture into a shallow baking dish. With the back of a big spoon make 6 holes for the eggs. Carefully crack one egg over each hole and place it in there. 
Cover with the pepperoni. Bake for about half an hour or until the egg white is done. 
Garnish with parsley and serve with fresh bread.
Serves 4 to 6
