  1. Boil the sweet potatoes for 8 mins until tender, then drain. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large ovenproof pan and cook the onion and chorizo for 5 mins until softened. Add the sweet potatoes and chickpeas and cook for 5 mins more. Roughly break the mixture up with a fork, then flatten it down lightly to form a cake. Cook for a further 8 mins, without stirring, until cooked through, crispy and golden on the bottom.

  2. Heat grill to high. Break the eggs onto the hash, season, then place the pan under the grill and cook for 2-3 mins until the whites are set. Sprinkle with chilli to serve.

This was ok, but really wasn't keen on the eggs being on top. Added garlic and tomatoes as suggested by others. Don't think I will make it again.

This turned out to be a surprisingly good recipe. Wasn't too sure about grilling the eggs on top, so will cook these seperately next time. Nice with a serving of baked beans on the side.

..Baked Beans on the side????!!!...ok............classy:...You're obviously British then are you?...tell you what : some greasy chips would be nice as a side with this as well, wouldn't they??

Yes, but don't we have fantastic manners? We're pretty competent on the punctuation front too...

This went down well with the family, although I was the only one who liked the egg so may do one on the side next time. Followed the advice to add a tin of tomatoes and more garlic may do half sweet/half white potatoes next time.

I made this previously and found it still quite dry with a can of tomato. This time round I used 1kg sweet potatoes with 340g chorizo, added tomato based pasta sauce with herb, throw in garlic and thyme (happened to be in the fridge). I am very happy that the result is so much more satisfying and flavoursome than before. Easy and simple - definitely will make it again.

I enjoyed this, however, for me it was a bit too salty and lacked a bit of flavour. I added a tin of tomatoes like others have said which stopped it being too dry. For me the egg made the dish. I would probably add more seasoning (and definitely some garlic) if I were to make this again.

Have made this a few times and it is always a hit. I agree that better with less chorizo. I also added half a bag (125g) of rinsed baby spinach before the flattening stage. Just stir through until it wilts. Adds another vibrant colour and is delicious.

Made this for my family and it went down REALLY well! Loved it. I looked at the comments before and added 2 cloves of garlic with the onion and then added a tin of chopped tomatoes when adding the chickpeas because I prefer my food saucy. Kept everything else the same and it was excellent. Will definitely cook again, is a proper winter warmer

Made this the other night for me and my flatmate and we both loved it. Would probably use a little less chorizo or more sweet potato as the chorizo was a bit overpowering but was so delicious, will make again

I also added a tin of beans as per the suggestions below - and some tomato puree as well as some small red and yellow peppers and this was delicious and well received by even the fussiest member of our household. I will definitely make it again.

We loved it! After reading the comments below, I added 1 garlic clove and some tomato puree.
I made these with the sweet potato and chorizo quesadilla's. Will definitely make this hash again, it is so easy and tasteful!

WOW! Loved this. Went down really well with my family and we ate every last bit. Only problem was i didnt have a big enough dish that i could cover and that would fit in the hob, but i just had to keep turning it, just took a bit longer than i thought it would. Delicious!

Added a tin of baked beans instead of chickpeas, 2 cloves of chopper garlic and a sprig of thyme in with the onions. It went down an absolute treat. I only had 260g of cooking Chorizo so I cut it into rough chunks and left it under the grill a little longer.

It had a sweet hit to it and it was beautiful, great for Halloween or Bonfire Night, I've been told I must cook this again.

This is a tasty, simple and quick recipe that requires little prep. I use half sweet potato and half white potato as I think it is far too sweet otherwise. It can be quite rich so I serve it with a salad on the side with plenty of fresh tomatoes. I also omit the eggs.

I made this meal tonight and it was very well received. I added a few squirts of tomato purée and a little water when cooking the chickpeas and sweet potato through and grinded in some spices (mustard seeds, dried chilli and white pepper) to give it a little bit more of a kick. The eggs really top off the meal well and the green chilli was a good topping.

Thought it was a little bit dry - maybe some chopped tomatoes would help. Eggs were lovely - added them and baked in oven for 5 mins

I made this for supper and also added two large handfuls of chopped fresh tomatoes and three cloves of garlic. I have to say it did rather look like a campsite breakfast but my sons loved it and said it would be great for a hangover cure! I would fry/poach the eggs separately if I made it again but I doubt that I will. Good student food though.

Really nice - add garlic and red wine. Don't let the eggs cook for too long - grill the top before adding the eggs.
