Ingredients

  • 1 x 250g pack mini cooking chorizo sausages, peeled and cut into 2cm cubes
  • ½ x 28g pack flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • 170g Manchego cheese, grated coarsely
For the peperonata
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 red, yellow or orange peppers, deseeded and sliced 5mm thick
  • 1 red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 6 plum tomatoes, quartered, deseeded and sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 1 tbsp demerara sugar
  • 50ml red wine vinegar
  • grated zest of ½ lemon

Step by step

Get ahead
Make the peperonata up to 4 days before, cover and chill.
  1. For the peperonata, heat the oil in a large pan and add the peppers, onion and garlic and cook gently, uncovered, on a medium heat for 15-20 minutes, until soft but without taking on any colour. Season well.
  2. Add the rest of the peperonata ingredients, reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook until it turns to a nice semi-thick sauce consistency – about 30 minutes. Keep an eye and stir often it so doesn’t catch and burn. At the end, check the seasoning and remove the bay leaf and thyme.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chorizo and fry until it releases its fat and starts to crisp.
  4. Stir in the peperonata and bring it to a simmer. Mix in most of the parsley, leaving a little to garnish if you like, then pour into a baking dish (or leave in the pan if it’s ovenproof). Using a spoon, spread out the whole mix evenly, then make 6 small holes for the eggs.
  5. Crack in the eggs and scatter over the Manchego cheese. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the eggs are cooked but still runny, and the cheese has melted. Finish with the rest of the parsley, if using, and eat immediately. Good with crusty bread.
