  2. Make 2-4 spaces in the pan and crack in the eggs. Cook until the whites are set, then break the yolks. Sprinkle with paprika and parsley, and serve from the pan.

I make something similar but fry up some chorizo, chopped up, first to get the flavored oils out and then fry up some onions and mixed peppers, then add the potatoes. No need for the paprika.
