How do you like your eggs done? Sunny side up? Poached? Baked? Scrambled? I personally LOVE poached eggs. Everyone who knows me well, knows how much I love my eggs benedict! Poached eggs on english muffins topped with a big dollop of Hollandaise sauce. Just typing the description out is making me crave for some now at 5pm in the evening.
My next favourite is baked eggs. And that’s exactly what I made for baby today for breakie.
As our oven was due for cleaning, I just cooked this over the stove which was great! (: I found the recipe while reading OK! magazine, and it was a small little booklet which consists of a few recipes from different chefs! This particular recipe is from Pete Evans! I saw it, and I knew my baby would love it.
Pete Evans made his on the barbecue, but cause we didnt have one and the oven was down, I did mine all on the stove! I didn’t need to put much seasoning cause the chorizo used in this recipe did all the seasoning for me!
So here’s the recipe adapted from Pete Evans’ My Grill.
4 tomatoes, halved
1 chorizo, cut into slices
1 small tablespoon of chopped chives
pinch of hot paprka
1 cup of cheddar cheese
1. Cook the tomatoes on a non-stick pan till they are tender and cut into chunky pieces.
2. Place the chorizo into a cast-iron pan and fry it till it’s golden on each side. Place the tomatoes in with the chorizo, with the chives and just a little salt and pepper.
3. Make some holes in the mix to crack the eggs into. Sprinkle the paprika and cheddar cheese. Cover the pan with aluminium foil and cook it on low for 10-15 mins until the whites are cooked and the yolks are still runny. Serve with toast!
a close up! (:
The egg whites were cooked but the yolks were still runny which combined with the tomatoes made a really good dip for toast!
and you know what’s better? Having this with a nice cup of hot chocolate, and watching Karate Kid.
So what is your perfect combination with eggs? Share! I would love to hear it!
