Give breakfast a makeover with this throw-it-all-in one-pan wonder! A hint of chilli and fresh herbs complete this breakfast winner.

Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 mild chorizo sausages, sliced (150 grams)
  • 400ml tomato passata
  • ½ tsp harissa
  • ½ cup marinated red pepper strips
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to season
  • 4 free range eggs
  • ½ cup pitted green spanish olives, roughly chopped (90 grams)
  • chopped flat leaf parsley to serve


  1. Heat a medium fry pan with olive oil, add chorizo and cook for a few minutes. Add tomato passata, harissa and red peppers.  Bring to the boil, lower heat & allow the sauce to gently simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
  2. Make four small wells in the sauce and crack eggs into these, sprinkle with olives & cover with a lid. Allow eggs to cook on medium heat for 5 minutes until whites are firm, but the yolks are still runny.
  3. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Tip: It’s optional to swap the olive oil for butter for a light buttery flavour.
