Rustic Fries With Caramelized Onion

Rapid, economical but still super tasty meals are my go-to on week days when the frenzy is fully installed.These are all organic products from my parents' farm - the soft potatoes, the tasty onions, the super fresh eggs which inevitably take the taste into another level. The combination of these simple ingredients is good enough to dismiss any other sauces or sides, because it is loaded in flavour provided by the caramelized onions that add a rich deep savory sweetness to this delicious dish. 

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 or 2 onions
  • potatoes
  • black olives
  • extravirgin olive oil
  • salt
  • chili
  • sunflower vegetable oil
In a frying pan caramelize the onions in olive oil, salt and chili. Reserve. Thickly slice the potatoes and fry them in sunflower vegetable oil. Place them between several coats of paper towel to absrob the excess of oil. Fry the eggs. Pour the caramelized onions over the fries. Serve hot.

  • 4 ovos
  • 1 ou 2 cebolas
  • batatas
  • azeitonas pretas
  • azeite virgem extra
  • sal
  • piri piri
  • óleo de girassol 

Numa sertã caramelize as cebolas em azeite, sal e piri piri. Reserve. Corte as batatas às rodelas e frite-os em óleo de girassol. Absorva o excesso de óleo em várias camadas de papel de cozinha. Frite os ovos. Despeje as cebolas caramelizadas sobre as batatas fritas. Sirva quente.
