Ous Estrellats (Fried Eggs and Potatoes)
A recipe for Ous Estrellats (Huevos Estrellados, Fried Eggs and Potatoes) from the cookbook, Barcelona Cult Recipes.
Servings 4 Servings
- Plenty of olive oil
- 4 potatoes cut into 2.5 cm (1 inch) dice or into chips (or fries)
- 4 very fresh eggs
- Iberian ham cut into thin strips
Fry the Eggs:
Heat plenty of olive oil in another frying pan. Crack the eggs and slide into the pan. Fry, continually basting with hot olive oil. The idea is to have the egg whites set fully while keeping the egg yolks beautifully runny.
Divide the potatoes among four ceramic bowls. Slide 1 egg on top of each. Season the eggs with a little salt and top with strips of ham. Serve immediately. Alow the hot egg yolks to burst over the potatoes, if preferred.
