    Bergy's Note:

    A number of years ago in a village in Spain I was served a dish similar to this recipe and thought of it as true comfort food.It was baked in a clay oven. It's been a while but this is my version of it. It was served for breakfast but I think of it more as a one dish dinner meal. It is an easy recipe with minimal preparation. You can make it ahead, reheat adding the eggs for the last 10 minutes. It can be as spicy or as tame as you like simply by choosing a type of sausage that you like. If you can get Portuguese Linguica sausage they would be perfect. I used Spanish Corizo-a very robust sausage full of smoke & flavor, You may even try Ham slices instead of sausage. The cook time is for making the recipe straight through-for "do ahead" allow another 40 minutes
