Huevos a la flamenca (Eggs flamenco)

Huevos a la flamenca, also known as Eggs flamenco or  Andalusian baked eggs, is a traditional Spanish dish, with many regional variations.

Regardless of its origin, the basic recipe for huevos a la flamenca is to gently fry onions, garlic, tomatoes and peppers, add a pinch of paprika, salt and pepper, crack eggs over the mixture, add your choice of herbs and bake until the egg whites are set and the yolks still soft.

Easy, quick, filling and delicious.  Serve with crusty bread or garlic bread fresh out of the oven to elevate this dish to a substantial meal.

Paula Deane adds walnuts and cinnamon.  Another idea is to top the brie with apricot preserve and pecans, or add roasted almonds to brie baked with honey and fresh rosemary sprigs .
