I moved from the UK to France in 2005, gave up my business and with my husband, Paul, and two sons converted a small cottage in rural Brittany to our home   Half Acre Farm.

Paul also learned he could grow vegetables and plant fruit trees; we also keep our own poultry for meat and eggs. Shortly after finishing the work on our house we was featured in a magazine called Breton and since then Ive been featured in a few magazines for my food.

Pre-heat oven to 180°

Heat Olive Oil in a deep frying pan, sauté onion, peppers and garlic until soft, add chorizo, tomatoes, peas, paprika, potatoes, Vinaigre de Xéres and White Wine. Simmer and reduce keeping the mixture juicy and thick but not dry, add salt and pepper to taste (at this stage if it’s not quite to your taste you could add the chilli flakes).

Transfer to an oven dish (I use a round clay dish). Lay the torn up strips of Serrano ham on top. Make 4 wells in the mixture and break 4 eggs into the wells.

Cook in a preheated oven at 180° for approx. 15-20 mins (or until eggs are cooked) this is the tricky bit as I think this depends on your oven as to how long it takes !

Serve with crusty bread and a glass (or 2) of red wine Huevos a la Flamenca – Flamenco Eggs recipes guest posts  My name is Roz but lots call me Rosie.  Welcome to Rosies Home Kitchen.
