  • 100g cooking chorizo, cut into pieces
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 400g boiled potatoes, slightly crushed
  • garlic cloves, crushed in their skins
  • 2 rosemary sprigs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 parsley sprigs, leaves picked and chopped
  • smoked paprika, to taste


  1. Fry the chorizo in the olive oil with the crushed potatoes, garlic and rosemary. Allow the chorizo to form a crust before turning.

  2. Meanwhile, fry the eggs the way you like them. Mix the potatoes with the parsley and a light dusting of smoked paprika. Serve the eggs on top of the potatoes with a further dusting of paprika, if you like.
