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.

How to Make Huevos Tontos

Step-by-Step

  • 1Soak 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.
  • 2Heat 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.
  • 3The way we ate it is to make a rue from garlic, parsley, and flour and then to add milk until gravy is formed.
