Huevos Del Abuelo

My Mr talked to me about this dish a couple of times in the past, passed on in his family from generation to generation – ‘just how grandfather made it’ – but we never came around to making it ourselves (I have never tried it before, either). So the other day, when we were without ideas about what to have for dinner (this was BEFORE I started meal planning 😉 ), we have pulled this one out of the recipe bucket – a perfect example of a fantastic dish with few ingredients, that is prepared just as fast as it is devoured. Made by my amazing chef-boyfriend!

1. Peel and slice the tomatoes. On a little olive oil, cook the tomatoes until they are soft. Add a bit of salt and pepper and mix.
2. Break and pour the eggs on top of the tomatoes. Cover and simmer on low heat until the whites are fully done and the yolks are half done. Sprinkle with some oregano and serve over (or mixed with) white rice.

  1. Oh wow, especially that fact that you didn’t even have to make it. I could so start my day with something like that.

    I make a similar dish, Eggs in Purgatory, and it’s quite a dish, just like yours here is. Both are simple to make and quick. Just what I like in a breakfast — or lunch or dinner. 🙂

    Eggs can come to the rescue when your cupboard is bear or you have no idea what to prepare for dinner. Your dish sounds like it was delicious.
