Fired-up Mushroom, Chorizo and Potato Hash

Fired-up Mushroom, Chorizo and Potato Hash

Serves 4


2kg new (or Charlotte) potatoes, cut into chunks

1 tbsp olive oil

150g chorizo sausage, chopped

6 spring onions or 1 small red onion, chopped

2 tsp chopped fresh red or green chilli

200g chestnut mushrooms, sliced

3 tbsp vegetable oil

4 eggs

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


This delicious hash is fired up with fresh chilli for a bit of spicy heat. It’s finished off with a fried egg and chopped parsley for a simple brunch, lunch or supper dish – and it’s ideal for a bonfire night option without the eggs.

Prep time: 20 minutes / Cook time: 25 minutes

Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 15-20 minutes, until tender.

Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, then add the chorizo sausage, onions and chilli. Cook over a medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the chestnut mushrooms and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, until the mushrooms are browned.

Drain the potatoes well, then tip them into the frying pan and stir well. Keep warm over a low heat, stirring occasionally.

At this point, heat the vegetable oil in a separate frying pan and fry the eggs until done to you liking.

Share the potato hash between 4 warmed serving plates and place a fried egg on top of each portion. Serve, sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.

Cook’s tips: Make sure you buy chorizo sausage that needs cooking – just check the packaging. If you prefer, poach the eggs instead of frying them.
