A delicious brunch as served in Basque Country, Spain 

The Basque Country

While travelling in the Basque Country, I spent a few days visiting beautiful Basque Country towns (both on the French and Spanish sides) like Saint-Jean de Luz, San Sebastian (See the article I posted a while ago, HERE), Bilbao and the Atlantic coastal plain.

The Casco Viejo

One of the best culinary experiences in Bilbao lies in the old district called the « Casco Viejo« , with lots of tapas bars and great local restaurants…
Easy salsa verde…not to mention it has fewer tourists than San Sebastian, which makes this old district even more interesting
And here’s the square in the old dictrict where I ate this dish

Steps

Easy salsa verde

The Cast Iron skillet

The skillet that this dish was served to me in Basque Country was pretty close to a Lodge Cast-iron Skillet, which I bought for the occasion

Cooking the vegetables

Start by cooking the diced

Onion

(1) until they start to caramelize, then add the diced

Bell Peppers

(3) with the spices :

Chile Powder

,

Paprika

,

Chile powder (or Espelette)

,

Onion Powder



Easy salsa verde
Then add the

Diced Tomatoes in Can

(3 ½ Cups or 690 g) (can of diced tomatoes)

Easy salsa verde
After

10/15 minutes

, the vegetables are very soft, the liquid has thickened

Easy salsa verde
Easy salsa verdeSeparate the vegetables in two halves and blend one half
Easy salsa verdePour this vegetable sauce in the skillet
Then pour the 2nd half of vegetables that were not blended

Easy salsa verde
Easy salsa verdeUsing the back of a spoon, dig a few holes (one per egg) into the vegetables
Spoon

Riccota Cheese

(1 Cup or 250 g) into those holes and press (to create a hole that will contain the egg)

Eggs

into each hole

Baking

5/10 minutes



Easy salsa verde

Baking

When the egg whites start to set, top with

Parmesan Cheese

and pre-cooked slices of

Spanish Chorizo

(I precook them in a skillet).

Do NOT replace Spanish Chorizo with mexican or another chorizo ! Taste is totally different. You will find Spanish Chorizo online, imported from Spain, on Amazon for instance

Easy salsa verde
Here you go ! After

5/10 minutes

of baking, the cheese has melted, take out of the oven and top with

Basil leaf

leaves
