  1. Heat the oil in a medium frying pan, and add the chorizo and onion. Fry for about 8 mins, until the chorizo is golden and has released its orange oils, and the onion is soft.

  2. Turn up the heat, tip in the kale and stir-fry for 1 min until wilting. Stir in the potatoes, paprika and some seasoning. Fry everything together for another 5 mins or until the potatoes are hot through and the kale is tender. Scrape the bottom of the pan now and again for those all-important crispy bits.

  3. Meanwhile, fry or poach the eggs, then serve on top of the hash.

Really tasty and will probably make again. Used boiled new potatoes and that worked well. Think I'd steam the kale and add to the dish as it got quite brown without being fully cooked.

I was really looking forward to this - used rooster spuds but think maybe it needed to specify new pots? It was pretty awful to be honest but only due to spud situation...

We cooked this for dinner and it was delicious! Would definitely cook again.

This made a lovely weekend brunch and was simple to put together. The flavour combinations and textures worked really well. Worth a try.

An easy, delicious meal. Extremely tasty - one that we will certainly be making again and again! We used normal sausages instead of the choirzo and it was still amazing!
