Huevos Flamencos: Eggs, Chorizos, and Ham in Spicy Tomato Sauce
- Large cast-iron skillet: 10 inches or 12 inches
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 whole red onion sliced
- 1 whole large tomato sliced
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 2 Tablespoons ketchup
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper powder
- 6 whole Filipino longanisas (cured pork sausages) pre-cooked then sliced
- 1 cup cubed cooked ham cut into 1/2-inch squares
- 2 whole Spanish chorizos sliced
- 1/2 cup sliced red peppers
- 6 to 8 whole fresh asparagus blanched and sliced
- 1/2 cup cooked corn kernels
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley chopped, for garnish fresh parsley
- for serving : buttered garlic fried rice
- 1/8 teaspoon Tabasco sauce for serving
- for serving: cooked pork and beans
- 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil divided, 1 Tablespoon for cooking the Filipino longanizas
- 4 to 6 whole large eggs
- Pre-cook Filipino longanizas in a skillet: Over medium heat, add ½ cup of water to 6 pieces of longanizas and pierce the sausages with a fork. After 10-12 minutes, the water will have evaporated. Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to the skillet. Cook the longanizas for 6 to 7 minutes more or till they are darker and have a shiny glaze. Remove from fire, cool a few minutes and slice.
- To make the Huevos Flamencos: In an oven proof skillet, over medium high heat, place a tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the sliced onions and minced garlic. Stir fry for 1 to 2 minutes or till onions are transparent. Add the tomatoes, ketchup and tomato sauce. Stir and season with Worcestershire sauce salt, pepper, red pepper flakes. When tomato sauce boils, turn off heat and remove from the stove top.
- Using the same oven-proof skillet or a baking dish, arrange in a circular pattern, over the tomato sauce, the following ingredients : Sliced Filipino chorizos, ham cubes, sliced Spanish chorizos, vegetables, red pepper slices, corn kernels. Crack open the eggs over the entire mixture, making sure they land in the middle, nestled next to each other.
- Place the skillet or oven-proof glass dish with the entire egg-chorizos mixture into the oven. Bake at a preheated 350 F degrees for 15 minutes, or till eggs are set, and no longer runny. Take out of the oven. Garnish with chopped parsley. Serve hot with buttered garlic fried rice or a basket of Filipino pan de sal, and some pork and beans on the side.
- Recipe Notes: For an extra spicy flavor, sprinkle a few drops of tabasco sauce over the cooked Huevos Flamenco.
- Cook's Comments: To make this dish easy, I sometimes use leftovers. I've used leftover tomato sauce from pasta dishes, extra ham slices, leftover longanizas from previous meals, and excess chorizos, holdovers from other meals. Make life easy for yourself and creatively add a little of everything you have laying in the refrigerator - it will be fantastic!
