Spanish Baked Eggs for Mothers Day

Spanish egg 1spanish eggs 2spanish eggs 3I had so much fun cooking for the Wifey and her family on Sunday for Mothers Day. It was the first cook up we have had in the new house so it was great to get the family together.

My version of Spanish baked eggs was the perfect brunch. Rayne’s mum is a celiac (allergic to wheat and gluten) so I have to create a dish that is celiac friendly and a wow factor for the whole family.

You should be able to find these paella pans at most cooking outlets but if you are having trouble contact Dallimores Homeswares in Subiaco and they should be able to steer you in the right direction.

You can find these large pans in a mini version too so if you are not cooking for the whole family then you can use a couple of the small pans as individual portions.

As you can see they are versatile and can be used for a variety of dishes.

  • 12 ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 jar char grilled capsicum
  • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 3 Italian sausages sliced
  • 2 cups spinach leaves
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves
  • Handful rocket
  • 200g feta
  • 1 can cannelloni beans
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil

 Pre heat oven to 220degC.

 In a large bowl season the tomatoes with salt, pepper and a splash of olive oil.

 Add your capsicums, pine nuts, sausage, spinach, beans and basil to your tomatoes and mix through.

 Add all of your ingredients to the paella pan and cook in the oven for about 10 minutes.

 Remove the pan from the oven and make a well in the mixture, crack an egg into it. Do this for all of eggs. Crumble feta over the top.

 Place back in oven and cook for a further 8-10 min or until eggs are cooked to your liking.

 Finish with some fresh rocket and serve with some crusty ciabatta or as my mother in-law did, eat with some corn chips.

 Serves about 8 people as part of a shared breakfast.
