Spanish Tomato & Egg Scramble | A Traditional Egg Dish from Murcia
Spain is known for making some great egg dishes, and this Spanish Tomato & Egg Scramble ranks right up there with the best of them. It´s basically made by making a simple homemade tomato sauce, adding some whisked eggs into the sauce and mixing it all together.
This dish hails from the Region of Murcia, where it ´s known as Revuelto de Tomate Murciano. It´s super easy to make, packs a ton of great flavors and comes together in about 30 minutes. Perfect for a weekend breakfast next to some Spanish potatoes.
To make this recipe, I grated fresh tomatoes to make the tomato sauce. But you can totally use canned tomato sauce instead. I also used cage-free organic eggs, but once again, you can use any type of eggs you like. However, the higher the quality of the ingredients, the better this dish will taste.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: Once the tomato sauce is done and you add the eggs into the sauce, make sure to mix the ingredients gently and not vigorously. In my pan on a medium heat it took about 3 1/2 minutes to get the eggs perfectly cooked. Make sure not to overcook them. Otherwise they get a rubbery texture.
