Spicy Baked Chorizo Eggs

Spicy Baked Chorizo EggsThis is an easy “one pot” recipe of eggs baked in a tomato, chorizo, and paprika sauce. You simply mix the sauce together fairly quickly on the stove, then crack eggs into the pan, nestling them into the sauce. Pop the pan in to the oven to poach and voila!
Baked eggs are also called “Shakshuka” and originated in North Africa. You can change up all the ingredients and make it as healthy or unhealthy as you like – adding feta makes it even nicer… and so does dipping garlic ciabatta in to your dish, but still delicious without!

  • Chilli Flakes to taste (if you like spicy)

  3. Add the tomato paste, honey, paprika, spinach, chorizo and the can of tomatoes.
  4. Stir and simmer for another 5 minutes.
  5. Using 2 spoons to dig a little well, crack an egg in to each hole.
