How to make Flamenco eggs (Huevos a la Flamenca)
Step1. Preheat oven to 230°C (446 °F) . Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onion and garlic and saute for about 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are soft. Add half of the ham and sweet pepper. Saute for 2 minutes, then add paprika. Simmer over low heat for 10 minutes until a fairly thick puree is formed. Add peas and tomato paste (optional). Salt and pepper.
Step 2. Transfer to a dish or onto 4 fireproof plates. Make a dent in the center of each serving. Carefully crack an egg into each dent. Sprinkle with the remaining ham and place a slice of sausage on top of the yolks. Place the plates in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes until the egg whites are browned and the yolks are still pliable, or 15 minutes if you prefer a fried egg. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
