chorizo and egg breakfast cup egg muffins


  • 6 free range eggs
  • 1/2 pack feta cheese
  • Around 75g your favourite chorizo sausage chopped finely. I used venison and chilli from a recent trip to Borough Market in London.
  • 1/2 a small onion or a couple of spring onions chopped
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper


Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk. Add the chopped onion of choice, chorizo and crumble the feta into the mixture.

Oil a muffin or yorkshire pudding tin and divide the mixture between the holes in the tray.

Cook in the oven on 200C for around 12 minutes but check from 10 minutes and every two minutes until cooked to your desired liking. Remember the cheese and chorizo oil will mean it will be slightly moist and mushy to the touch but if you take them out and leave to rest for a few minutes they will continue to cook in their residual heat.

Eat immediately or refrigerate when cooled slightly and warm in the microwave for breakfast the day later.

You could add any other cheese of your preference but halloumi probably wouldn’t work so well as it keeps its shape and won’t melt into the eggy mixture whilst cooking. You could add some mustard to the mix, chiptole tobasco, peas, spinach, bacon, salami, ham, finely chopped broccoli or chopped tomato so get experimenting.
