I always keep a ring of Chorizo sausage in the fridge because in a pinch, it will enable you to produce a fabulous meal in minutes! So as I have a house full of girlfriends who had flown in to stay with me, Chorizo along with a few eggs became my saviour.
This simple dish is as colourful and tasty as it is filling. The recipe is straight forward and for those who aren't so great in the kitchen, this is a winning recipe and here it is:
Chorizo Brunch Skillet (serves 4)
1 ring of Chorizo (M&S and all supermarkets sell them, chopped/diced
5 spring onions, sliced
100g Gruyere cheese, finely grated
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. In a large heavy-based non-stick pan (which should be oven proof) over a medium heat, lightly fry your Chorizo sausage but not so it browns just so all the oils are released. Beat your eggs and pour a handful of your grated cheese into the raw eggs and mix well. Then pour the eggs into the pan, add your chopped spring onions and give it a quick stir so the ingredients are evenly distributed. Then sprinkle the rest of the grated cheese on top of the eggs (see inage above) and cook for another 6-8 minutes before placing in the oven for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and serve with a nice hunk of crusty bread. Simple, delicious and really quick.
