'Huevos Rotos' with Jamón Ibérico

"Huevos Rotos" (broken eggs) with Jamón Ibérico is a dish created by the famous restaurant "Casa Lucio" and has become a basic dish for tapas in Spain.

In addition to a good Iberian ham, it can also be accompanied with other ingredients such as Manchego cheese, chorizo or cod and, of course, always with crispy white bread.
