Method

  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.

We made this for dinner last night but also added a tin of tomatoes as my husband likes a "sauce", it was so yummy! Can't wait to have it again! =D

I put a blob of sour cream when serving and it makes it juicer. We love this one and made it many times in the past. Cheap, quick, easy. Perfect for mid week dinner.

Felt this was a little bit dry so I added a tin of chopped tomatoes and some garlic.
Fed three people and they cleared their plates!!!!!

Ok. A bit dry, needed more seasoning or garlic as suggested above. If made again, it would need some modifications.

This is delicious. I added some garlic, the recipe seems to have left this out :)
I didn't add chilli, didn't have any, but added bell peppers instead.
Also didn't add the egg, I think there is plenty of protein etc already, so didn't need it. I may add them sometime when I make it, depends :)
Really nice.

Hmmm, not so sure about this one. My husband asked if it was actually a recipe, and said it reminded him of a dish you might make on the last day of a camping holiday when you have random items of food left. I have to admit I agree with him.

I wonder, would it be so much different if i used some "normal" potatoes for this, not the sweet potatoes? We don't have that kind of vegetables sold around where i live.

was just browsing for ways to use up sweet potatoes when I came across this. It was on the plate 30 minutes later and was absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe but didn't top with chilli as OH does not like them, but added sprinkle of paprika during cooking. This is now on the repeat recipe list.

Very tasty, the sweet potatoes go nicely with the chorizo. The chorizo I got was quite spicy, so I'm glad that I didn't add any peppers. Very easy to make as well.

I made this last night with new potatoes that needed using up and put it in the oven as opposed to under the grill when I added the eggs as I wanted the yolks to still be a bit runny.
