  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.

So easy, yet very satisfying. As I had no leftover potato, I diced some to the same size as the chorizo, baked them in olive oil until they were golden brown, then added them according to the recipe. I also added a pinch of chili flakes to give the dish a bit of zing. I will certainly cook it again and next time will try smoked paprika just to see how it works.

Amazing recipe. I added garlic, 1/2 red chilli, 1 red pepper and 1 onion sliced. Really good. Also used smoked chorizo and pimento powder.

Lovely tasty dish. I steamed the kale first so it was nicely wilted. Boiled the new potatoes and smashed them up a bit so they stuck nicely to the bottom of the pan. Saved in my favourites. :-)

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!

Do the potatoes HAVE to be cold?

Thanks for your question. No they don't, this is just if you're using leftovers.

Great recipe - I had left offer pepperoni to use up so subsided the chorizo. I also used cubes of frozen spinach instead of the fresh kale.
