Observations:

What can I substitute for Serrano ham in huevos rotos?
You can replace the Serrano ham with sausage, chorizo, or other cold meats such as Parma ham or Bellota for example. There is also a version of huevos rotos called "huevos rotos con carabineros" which is prepared with prawns.

How to make a gourmet version of this dish?
To improve this dish we recommend using truffle oil, truffle cold cuts or grated fresh truffle. Do not hesitate to add the herbs of your choice to decorate the dish, such as chives, green onion...

How to cook potatoes?
We chose to cook the potatoes in water and olive oil but traditionally the potatoes are fried in this dish. You can therefore cook your slices in olive oil or sunflower oil.
