I love breakfast like a lot.

Not weekday breakfast. Weekday breakfast can do one. We go back and forth between toast and cereal and I pretty much hate both of them. Which mainly stems from the fact that eating before 9am makes me feel crappy. Unfortunately waiting to eat until after 9am also makes me feel crappy and liable to fainting spells so you see my predicament. In actual fact I love cereal and toast out of the pre-leaving-for-work breakfast context. Coco pops for dessert? Perfection. Fancy toast smothered in melty butter and marmite as an afternoon snack? Ideal.

So when I say I love breakfast I mean I love slow weekend breakfasts. Breakfasts that are actually brunch, or basically just lunch, by the time we get round to having them. Our Saturdays and Sundays when we have no plans are some of my favourites because they centre around food and working. After cooking and eating a tasty breakfast Will works on his music and I work on my blog and we’ll sit in comfortable silence while occasionally chatting about what we’ll have for our next meal.

Ingredients

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 Red Onion chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic chopped
  • 1 Long Red Pepper chopped
  • 1 Red Chilli chopped
  • 150-175 g Cooking Chorizo cubed
  • 1 400 g tin Chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Dried Coriander
  • 4 Eggs
  • Bunch Fresh Coriander chopped
  • 50 g Feta crumbled

Instructions

  1. Heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the onion with a good pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Add the chorizo, garlic, pepper and chilli and cook for another 8-10 minutes until the veg is softened and the chorizo is releasing its oil.
  2. Add the spices to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and give everything a good stir together. Make a well in the tomato sauce, if no liquid runs into the well it's ready for the eggs. Make 4 wells and break an egg into each one. Cover and cook until the whites have cooked, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat and top with the coriander and feta. Serve with bread and natural yoghurt.

    Shakshuka is one of my favourite lunchtime dishes, but I’ve never tried it with chorizo before! I can already imagine how wonderful the smoky sausage will be in it. Yum!

    Chorizo and feta cheese are the best toppings you can add to Shakshuka. Thanks for creating this recipe, if you don’t mind I will share it at Canalla’ social media.

    This is such a delicious dish which I would love to try! Can I use some other kind of cheese instead of feta?

      Thanks! I’m sure you could try something else, goat’s cheese would be lovely on there as well
