Here’s an egg dish you’ve probably never heard of. It ticks all the boxes for a great family meal – quick, easy and relatively few ingredients. It’s also absolutely wonderful if you love peas. This recipe makes up enough for two main meals or 4+ side dishes.


  • 4 medium Bird Brothers eggs
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 100g chorizo – sliced finely
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 100 ml chicken stock
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • tbsp olive oil


  1. Fry the chorizo for a few minutes before adding in the onion and garlic until soft and golden - no need for olive oil.

  2. Add chicken stock and peas and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes until the peas are cooked through. Then season with salt and pepper.

  3. Make 4 hollows in the mixture and crack eggs into them – cover and cook until the eggs have set.

  4. Serve with crusty bread
