  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.

Just cooked this, only change was used the full 1kg bag of sweets instead of the 600g stated. Wasn't dry in the slightest and had plenty of flavor. Like many others have said, not too about the eggs, tho my partner liked them in top.. Nice and quick tea, will be making this again

I don't normally mess with recipes but I want to share how I adapted this for one and made it into one of the best things I've ever cooked for myself. The changes were pretty small too. I did 1 sweet potato, half can chickpeas, half can of chopped tomato. added crushed garlic clove, oregano and a medium red chili (seeds removed). Everything else I kept the same. Honestly, this was sooo tasty I had to post!

Made a big mistake in not reading the comments before making this - it was very dry and also kind of gross, I couldn't eat it so will be having toast for dinner. Will maybe try again with some tinned tomatoes added but I don't know if it's worth it.

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.

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
