A popular recipe that if you are Spanish you have eaten countless times. This time we are going to cook it with serrano ham D.O. from Teruel. A delicious white pork serrano ham, which is considered the best white pork ham.
The first thing we are going to do is peel the potatoes and cut them into small pieces of about 2 centimeters on the side. Then we will wash the potatoes to remove the starch. (This is a very useful trick, since it will facilitate its frying preventing them from sticking and leaving the potato loose when we take it out of the pan).
Once the potatoes are washed, we dry them well with a cloth cloth. They have to be perfectly dry, since otherwise the oil will jump when we put them in the pan and we could burn.
We put the pan with a little virgin olive oil. One finger does not have to cover the potatoes, since we will slowly fry them. We also add the garlic crushed with the skin and one or two cayenne chillies (depending if you want it more or less spicy). Having cut the potatoes thickly, we have to fry them slowly, since otherwise they would be raw inside. This process will take around 30 minutes.
While the potatoes are fried we will proceed to cut the serrano ham D.O. Teruel with knife. You can also use a serrano ham cut by machine. But when cutting the serrano ham D.O. Teruel at the moment is much better. Personally I recommend cutting it into small pieces as it will be easier to eat.
When the potatoes are practically cooked and fried, we will remove all the virgin olive oil from the pan. We put the serrano ham that we have cut in the pan. We set the heat to a minimum and let the ham release the fat and integrate with the potatoes.
It's time to fry the eggs, even if it seems the easiest task; It is not.
It is very important to fry the egg and keep the yolk liquid.
We finish the dish, putting the potatoes with ham and the eggs on top. Break the eggs and mix the liquid yolk with the potatoes and the serrano ham.
. Be careful with salt. Do not add salt until the dish is finished. Serrano ham is a salty food, when fried with potatoes it will release a lot of salt.
. Frying eggs is not easy. This tip can be very useful. Use a small skillet but make it high. Put enough oil but that is one or two fingers from the edge. When you open the egg do not put it directly in the pan, put it in another bowl and add the egg when the virgin olive oil is hot. We tilt the pan so that there is more olive oil on one side than on the other. We add the egg on the side that there is more oil so that the egg is completely covered. With a fork we mold the egg in such a way that it is in the form of a sphere, where the egg is fried on the outside and the yolk completely liquid.
. Eat with bread If it is from town much better.
