Cazuela Gallega is a delicious egg, ham and cheese casserole, good for breakfast or dinner.




  1. Place 3 sheets of aluminum foil (approx 15 x 15 inches or 35 x 35 cm) into a bowl with a 5-inch (12 cm) diameter and 2-inch depth. Press gently the foil downwards in order to give it the shape of the bowl.
  2. Spread the butter all over inside walls of the aluminum-shaped bowl.
  3. Place one slice of ham in the bottom of the bowl. Cut the additional slice in three strips. With each strip, cover inside walls of aluminum bowl.
  4. Add both eggs to the bowl.
  5. Add the peas, spreading them all over the eggs. Be careful with the yolks—don't break them. Add 1 teaspoon of the liquid from the can.
  6. Add a pinch of salt, and the ketchup, trying to cover all the area.
  7. Carefully remove foil with the casserole from the bowl. Top with the cheese and bake 30 minutes in a preheated 400°F (205C) oven.
