Diablo Eggs

Submitted by:
The best breakfast ever!!!! Also a great hangover food. Eggs poached over a spicy bell pepper and chorizo stew, and grilled. Also known as coddled eggs.

Preparation time: 10min
Cooking time: 20min

Serves: 2


2 large rammekins or gratin dishes
4 Eggs
6 tablespoons of cream
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese

Stew Ingredients
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
tabasco sauce
10cm of chorizo, thinly sliced
1 onion
4 ripe tomatoes - medium to large size
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
salt and pepper


1. Chop all your veggies- the bell peppers in slices, the onion in thin slices, the tomato in 1cm rings, and the chorizo in thin slices.

2. Fry the onion with the chorizo in a bit of oil. Add the other veggies and stir fry. when they are a bit cooked, add the vinegar. Cook untill you are left with about 1-2 cups of juice in the bottom of the pot. Cooking time should be 15min at full heat.

3. Put these 3/4 to the top into large rammekins. Crack two eggs over the top of each, being careful not to break the yolk. Drizzle three tbsp of cream over each one- just enough to cover everything lightly. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and put in the oven until its just set, and the cream has browned a little.

Serve with toast and garlic mushrooms!
