Preparation time

20 minutes

Cooking time

25 minutes




  • 2kg new (or Charlotte) potatoes, cut into chunks 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 150g chorizo sausage, chopped 
  • 6 spring onions or 1 small red onion, chopped 
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh red or green chilli 
  • 200g chestnut mushrooms, sliced 
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil 
  • 4 eggs 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 15-20 minutes, until tender.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, then add the chorizo sausage, onions and chilli. Cook over a medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the chestnut mushrooms and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, until the mushrooms are browned.

Drain the potatoes well, then tip them into the frying pan and stir well. Keep warm over a low heat, stirring occasionally.

At this point, heat the vegetable oil in a separate frying pan and fry the eggs until done to you liking.

Share the potato hash between 4 warmed serving plates and place a fried egg on top of each portion. Serve, sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.

Cooking tips

Make sure you buy chorizo sausage that needs cooking – just check the packaging. If you prefer, poach the eggs instead of frying them.
