Huevos Tontos

This is a recipe my Grandmother from Spain would make. It is a traditional dish from the Aragon area. The "huevos" can be served alone, in a gravy, in salads, as meatballs and found in soups. In recent years the addition of lamb, pork, cod, and asparagus have become newer versions.

Deep Fry

Ingredients

1
half loaf of stale bread (can use bread crumbs)
2
eggs
5 clove
garlic grated
1/2 c
milk
4 sprig(s)
parsley chopped
1 pinch
nutmeg
1 pinch
salt
oil for frying

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Soak bread in milk. Once bread is softened remove from milk. Add beaten eggs, garlic, parsley,salt, and nutmeg. Mixture can be refrigerated at this point.
2
Heat oil for frying. With two spoons make balls out of the dough to drop into oil. For best results, make a few at a time so oil does not cool off. Remove when browned and place in colander or wire racks to cool.
3
The way we ate it is to make a rue from garlic, parsley, and flour and then to add milk until gravy is formed.
