Spanish Baked Eggs

Eggs baked in smoked paprika buttermilk soaking into crispy-griddled bread with Manchego cheese. I love the combination of eggs and bread. Just like biscuits and gravy this is one of those irresistible sauce and bread combinations that have been elevated even further by the egg!

2 tsp. butter

2 slices sourdough bread or bread of choice

4 Large Eggs

¼ Cup buttermilk

1 tsp. smoked paprika or regular paprika

2 TB grated Manchego cheese or cheese of choice

Pinch of salt

Heat the oven to 350.

In a non-stick pan just large enough for the bread melt the butter over medium-high heat.

Add the bread to the pan pressing down and sliding to evenly coat the bread with the butter.

Crack the eggs on top. Pour the buttermilk evenly over the eggs. Sprinkle on the paprika.

Sprinkle on the grated cheese and pinch of salt.

Cook on the stove for one minute to allow the bread to get crispy.

Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for about 8 minutes or until eggs are cooked to desired doneness.

You can also make in a large pan to feed several people at brunch.
