Huevos Rotos is a Fun, Salty, Spanish Treat

Huevos rotos is a Spanish dish that means broken eggs in English, and you might be a little surprised by it! It’s definitely not something you should have all the time, but if you’re in Spain, and you maybe have a little hangover, or you’re just craving something super salty and fatty, this is the dish for you.

Huevos rotos can be found in two varieties. The first is with ham — or jamon in Spanish — and the second is with a cross between hot dogs and chorizo called salchichas.

The other elements to this dish is some type of potatoes, usually french fries, and everything is topped off with a fried egg and served with some bread on the side.

This is also a really easy and fun recipe to make at home if you want to show your friends some down-home Spanish cooking.

All you have to do is cut up potatoes and roast them until they’re golden and crispy. Fry up some hot dogs, sausages, or anything you have on hand, and then fry a few eggs in the same skillet. Let everyone dig in with some slices of bread, and it’ll be a fun way to share an international meal with friends.
