This is a favourite breakfast dish in my household.


1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 garlic clove, sliced

3 tomatoes, roughly chopped


1/2 tsp cumin powder (optional)

1/2 (dry) chorizo, sliced

4 eggs

1 tbsp parsley, chopped


Pre-heat oven to 200C. Heat oil in a pan and cook garlic till golden. Add tomatoes, salt to taste and cumin, cover with a lid, reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes until soft.

Spoon tomatoes into individual baking dishes with some sliced chorizo, make a well in the middle and break one egg into each dish. Sprinkle a little salt over the egg and place in the oven.

Cook for about 10 minutes or to your liking.

To serve 

Serve at once with a sprinkle of parsley.
