Spanish Garlic Potatoes & Eggs | Classic Recipe from the Basque Country

These Spanish Garlic Potatoes & Eggs are one of the most iconic dishes that hail from Spain. But more specifically, the Basque Country which is located in the north of Spain. They´re packed with flavors, seriously easy to make and done in about 45 minutes.

Spanish Garlic Potatoes & Eggs
These potatoes are the perfect side dish for any meal of the day, but they´re extra special next to some grilled fish and a bottle of Spanish wine. Either way, you can serve these potatoes piping hot or even at room temperature.

Spanish Garlic Potatoes & Eggs
For this recipe I used new potatoes. You want to use potatoes that are a bit more waxy than starchy. As they hold their shape better when boiled. You can also use yukon gold, golden delight or even red potatoes.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: When you add the broth into the pan, add in just enough to barely cover the potatoes, which was 2 1/2 cups (600 ml) in my case. You can make these potatoes ahead of time and just reheat, either in the oven or microwave.

    I made the recipe as written, but must have made a mistake, because I ended up with a bland watery potato soup and had to fish out the food bits with a slotted spoon. The 2 1/2 cups of broth seemed way too much.

    Looks good! Thank you! Would lemon juice be a good replacement for the wine or a little bit of vinegar?

      You could go either way, or even some broth with a squeeze of lemon juice 🙂 Much love
