Spanish-Style Eggs with Roasted Potatoes | The ULTIMATE Breakfast Recipe

Spain is known for having some great egg & potato dishes, and these Spanish-Style Eggs with Roasted Potatoes, sit right up there with the best of ´em. Packed with flavors, easy to make and done in about 45 minutes. Serve this dish for breakfast or even dinner. Either way, the flavors are mind-blowing good.

Spanish-Style Eggs with Roasted Potatoes
To make this dish, I used cage-free organic eggs. But you can use any eggs you like. But you know the old saying. The higher the quality of the ingredients, the better the over-all flavor.

I also topped the dish off with Manchego Cheese and Sweet Smoked Spanish paprika. Once again, you can use cheese you like. But make sure it has some flavor to it, as it really elevates the flavors of the dish.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: It takes about 40 minutes for the potatoes to be perfectly cooked in the oven. In order to get the eggs done at the same time as the potatoes. Start cutting your veggies and then cooking the scramble at the half way point of cooking the potatoes. Which was about 20 minutes in my case. You can also roast your potatoes ahead of time and just re-heat when cooking the eggs.

    In the egg dishes can I substitute an egg alternative as my grandchildren are allergic to eggs
