How d’ya like your eggs in the morning?



M: I like mine on a plate – Huevos al plato – eggs on a plate, like my mother used to do.

First of all she made the sauce, tomato sauce. She made it with a little bit of chilli:


- tomato,

- chilli ,

- garlic,

- salt and pepper

- a pinch of sugar.


You can use fresh tomatoes but peel them, then chop them up. Fry the tomatoes with your onion and garlic and olive oil, obviously. A bit of chilli, yes – a pinch, a bit more, you choose your heat! So, you fry the ingredients until they reduce to a lovely, thick sauce, it doesn’t have to be smooth.


Now the eggs.

Get a little dish. Right. Fill with some sauce. Crack and egg into each dish. And bake it for 10 minutes in a medium oven. Then serve it with beautiful crusty bread. Then you break the egg open and you eat!



It's here! It's arrived! Our little Tapas baby...
