Albufeira Eggs

Albufeira Eggs | My new favorite culinary hot spot is Portugal. They love their onions and definitely know how to cook a quality egg, so this is our nod to them. These eggs look like a lot of work, but they’re actually quite simple. Your oven does all the heavy lifting, all you have to do…
