Gastrokid Gastrovid Recipe: Eggs de la Vera


Here’s a video recipe of our household’s favorite egg dish. It takes about 5 minutes from prep to serving.

to serve two kids the recipe is:

4 eggs, beaten
a tablespoon of butter
about the same amount of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon or so pimenton de la vera, aka spanish smoked paprika. We use the dulce or sweet version

In a medium pan over high heat melt the butter, add the olive oil. Let it heat up until smoking. Add the smoked paprika and let it sit for maybe ten seconds. Add the eggs and let them cook for 15 or 20 seconds or so. If the pan is hot enough the eggs will set very quickly on the bottom, tilt the pan slightly and drag the cooked eggs toward the high side, the runny eggs will descend and start setting. Do this several times until the whole mess is setting up, turn em over, cook it through. Salt it. Plate it. Serve with hot buttered toast.

    Isn’t two eggs at once unhealthy for a young child? I avoid giving my children more than one egg in a day (and not every day).

  2. Hugh says:

    there’s that cholesterol issue for sure, but since we usually only have this dish once a week, on weekends, two at once seems just right

  3. Very impressive. How did you cook and film at the same time?

    cooking with a camera in one hand and a pan in the other is a lot easier than doing it with a squirming kid on your hip! Kneading bread is another matter altogether
