Chorizo Baked Eggs

I came up with this recipe a few weeks ago when I woke up late one Sunday morning and realised I had a surplus of egg yolks in the fridge after making some macarons. These Chorizo Baked Eggs are an incredibly simple one-pan breakfast and just the perfect amount for a one-person brunch. Double it if you have company 😉


You will need:

  • Two teaspoons olive oil;
  • One chorizo sausage;
  • One small clove of garlic, sliced;
  • 1/4 small brown onion, chopped;
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika;
  • 1/2 tin diced tomatoes;
  • 2 eggs (I used one egg and two leftover yolks);
  • Chopped flat-leaf parsley, freshly ground black pepper and toast, to serve.

Preheat the grill to medium- hot. Add one teaspoon of olive oil to your oven-proof pan over a medium heat and cook the chorizo sausage until evenly brown. Remove from heat and set aside to rest before slicing it.

Into the pan, add the other teaspoon of oil and add the chopped garlic and onion. Cook until the onion is translucent, then mix in the paprika and add the diced tomatoes.

???????????????????????????????Stir to combine and allow it to just come to a simmer before adding the cooked, sliced chorizo and cracking over the eggs.

  1. This looks delicious! I used to order something similar at a local cafe called “Bus Stop Eggs” which I think was a version of Shakshouka. I’ve never made it home though. I like the idea of eating straight from the pan so I think if I had guests I’d do individual ramekins.

    Can’t ever go wrong with home cooked baked eggs!

    1. Considering how easy and quick it is, cafes must make so much money from breakfasts!
