Chorizo Hash with Garden Omelette

Nothing can express more love for someone than a freshly made breakfast in bed. Whether you know how to cook an elaborate breakfast or not, it’s really the sweet gesture that counts. So that’s exactly what I wanted to do for my husband this past weekend. I picked up a crisp copy of the New York Times and got some fresh fruits. While I was at the market, I spotted some fresh Spanish chorizo in the meat department. At first I was going to cook it by itself but then I though why not make a chorizo hash? That sounded so delicious in my mind and it turned out even better than I expected. This is such an easy breakfast to put together that you really have no excuse not making it! Here’s the recipe;

Serves: 2


For the Chorizo Hash

2 Medium Yukon Potatoes, diced and par-boiled (always start with cold water)
1 Medium White Onion, sliced
2 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
1 Chorizo, casing removed
1 Cup Fresh Parsley, finely chopped
Salt & Fresh ground pepper as per taste
Pinch of sugar

For the Garden Omelette

½ Medium Red Pepper
½ Medium Green Pepper
1 Spring Onion
4 Large Eggs
Olive Oil
Salt & Fresh ground pepper
2 t Water (divided)
