Baked Eggs with Chorizo and Feta Cheese
baked eggs were unquestionable for a weekend brunch. I just can't resist a good egg at the weekend; whether that be boiled, fried, scrambled, poached or in this instance, baked. A somewhat indulgent breakfast that will take you a little longer to concoct, this recipe warms up the chilliest of days and makes you feel as if you're dining in a newfound brasserie from the comfort of your dining room.
With a stick of chorizo in the fridge and a block of feta cheese, this mission was a no-brainer. The recipe also calls for spinach, but this is the one thing I cannot eat and so I've left this out purely for personal taste (I'll include it in the recipe for those of you who eat it like Popeye!).
Having something warm for breakfast other than a fry-up or porridge intrigued me. Ok, so french toast and pancakes are pretty damn good too but this was just a little different. It takes a bit of prep and if your belly's rumbling, the wait is undeniably a test of endurance. However, for those that like a good "dippy egg", this pan-baked indulgence satisfies those needs with the eggs nestled delicately between the creamy, cheesy mishmash.
No breakfast is complete without a good cup of Joe and freshly squeezed orange juice, so whilst this is baking in the oven, get your beverages ready and your sourdough in the toaster.
