Weekends for me are all about brunch. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. There is something great about starting your weekend with something fun and new to eat that hasn’t come from a cereal box. If I have to eat something quick like toast, I feel cheated out of one of life’s simple pleasures!

A new dish that I tried out last week was my Chorizo Hash. It was amazing, the smell of the frying potatoes and chorizo wafting through the house definitely would wake you up. Give it a go, it’s really easy takes about 25-30 minutes and you’ll be skipping out the door with a smile on your face, ready for the weekend. I think a nice hearty brunch like this is perfect before a long walk, like in Schull, West Cork above!

Ingredients (serves two):

120g chorizo sausage (I used Gubbeen’s chorizo… heaven!)

2 potatoes chopped into chunks

1 red pepper chopped

1 onion chopped finely

Handful of chopped scallions (optional)

1 garlic clove finely sliced

1 tomato chopped

1 heaped tsp smoked paprika

Salt & pepper

2 free-range eggs

  1. Chop potato into small cubes and place in pan of boiling hot water on a medium-high heat until soft (test this by pricking with knife… don’t overcook, you don’t want soggy potatoes!!) Remove cooked potato, drain and set aside.
  2. Finely slice the garlic and onion add to saucepan. Slice tomato, pepper and scallions and add to pan, stirring until soft. Add chopped chorizo and paprika and stir until cooked (around 2 minutes), then set vegetables & chorizo aside.
  3. Add the cooked potatoes to the frying pan. Season with salt & pepper and fry until golden and crispy around the edges.
  4. Return vegetables and chorizo to pan and cook on a low heat.
  5. Fry the two eggs. I find covering the frying pan with a lid ensures that the top of the eggs are cooked nicely too.
  6. Serve your hash with the egg on top!

    1. Ya give it a go, it’s really easy. The flavours do all the work 🙂 I love picture guides as well myself for recipes, you could almost create it just from the pictures! Let me know how you get on, I hope you enjoy!

    1. I know, I’m a granola girl! But I do like something different at the weekends! Usually some kind of eggs, or maybe pancakes or French toast! This was very tasty though- great before a outdoors-y day!
