Tasty breakfast treat!

The simplicity of this recipe belies its' yumminess! Lovely recipe and very filling - feels like you're being naughty with fried chorizo, plus fried eggs - but overall a reasonable calorie count. We enjoy this as an evening meal and sometimes add chopped onion and sliced mushrooms to get some veg in and balance out the meal.

I made this for a special new years day brunch and it went down really well. My family generally thought that it was a bit different from the usual breakfast offering but that it was a nice change. Don't be tempted to skip the fresh herbs, they really made the dish. I also boiled my potatoes the day before to save time and it worked a treat.
