WHAT PAIRS WELL WITH SPANISH STYLE EGGS?
For this breakfast dish, something to sop up the delicious oils and grease like bread works great! Sourdough or a nice Rye can provide some good contrasting texture and flavor. For tasty beverage pairing – try a Mimosa or a Bloody / Dirty Mary served in a martini glass. If you want something non-alcholic, look to a glass of sparkling water, but don’t be afraid to smear a cut piece of lime or lemon on the inside of the glass before serving! (written by Chef Stef)
