If you want to be specific, this dish pertains to the Spanish meal of tapas. I will have to go much more into depth about tapas but not today. For now, to keep it short, tapas are small appetizers, but when served in a variety can make up a whole meal.

In my kitchen from time to time I turn certain tapas into full fledged meals. One such meal is Eggs Flamenco which can be a great breakfast, an elegant lunch, or a light pleasant dinner. When you pull the finished dish out of the oven you will be greeted with a smell and color that will instantly take you to the streets of Spain, to the flamenco dance, to the fiery colors of a beautiful Spanish dress, and the bright spirit of Spain. A little too poetic you say? Maybe, but Spain is made of this: of warmth, family, sun, commotion, and great food.
