  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1 chilli de-seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup cheese
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 dozen sticks of asparagus
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp butter
  • salt to season
  • handful of fresh chives chopped


Eggs: Dice chorizo and fry in a heated a frying pan till it becomes slightly crispy. Drain on paper towel. Crack eggs in a bowl, add the egg white, milk, salt  and whisk. Add 3/4 of the chorizo and 1/2 the chopped chives to the mixture.  In a frying pan heat oil  and 1 tsp butter. Pour in the egg mixture and cook for a minute, add cheese and cook for another minute or so before taking pan off heat.  (We like our eggs firm so we cook it for at least 3 mins.)

Asparagus: Heat remaining butter in a frying pan, throw in the chilli and cook for 1/2 minute, add asparagus, toss for 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if you wish.

To serve, Place eggs on toasted sourdough, with asparagus on the side and  garnish with remaining chives and chorizo.
