Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spicy Tomato Sauce: Heat oil in a small saucepan. Add onion and garlic; cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and red pepper; cover and cook for 20 minutes more. Let cool slightly, then puree in a blender or food processor; transfer to a serving bowl.
  2. Tortilla: Heat oil in a 7- or 8-inch skillet. Add onions and cook over low heat for 10 minutes; add potatoes to skillet.
  3. Season eggs with garlic salt and pepper; stir in cheese and add to skillet. Let cook for a few minutes, then carefully lift edges and tilt skillet so uncooked egg can run underneath. When eggs are almost set, carefully slide onto a plate. Cover with skillet and invert eggs back into skillet. Cook for a few minutes more or until cooked through.
  4. Sprinkle with parsley and cut into wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  5. This dish is also great when wedges are topped with small spoonfuls of Spicy Tomato Sauce.

Selected this for *Potluck Tag* as I love eggs and this treatment looked especially promising. The taste was magnificent well beyond the simplicity of the ingredients. As a time saver, I sauted the onions for both the sauce and tortilla at the same time adding a bit of smoked Spanish paprika. Loved the sauce and sopped up lots of it with pieces of bread. I did have some problems with the preparation of the tortilla. I used a 7-inch non stick skillet and allowed the tortilla to cook for 7 minutes and then set it under the broiler for an additional 2 minutes. Since it appeared firm, I began the process of turning it onto a plate to flip it. Alas, while the top and bottom were firm, the center was soft and the tortilla fell apart. :( I think using a slightly larger pan would work better in order for the heat to penetrate all the way through. Appearances aside, we loved the flavors and I will certainly try again. Thanks cookiedog.

We really enjoyed this and I will definitely make my eggs this way again. Loved the simplicity and the flavor of the sauce. I even forgot the cheese and it was still really good. Next time I need to make a bigger batch - but having one layer of potatoes across the bottom of the skillet was just right. Thanks for posting!
