Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2411 - Chorizo Potato Cakes With Eggs & Avo

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Boil a full kettle

Peel and chop the potatoes into rough, bite-sized pieces, then add to a pot with plenty of boiled water and a generous pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 12-15 min or until fork-tender

2 2411 - Chorizo Potato Cakes With Eggs & Avo

Meanwhile, heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the diced chorizo and cook for 6-8 min or until starting to crisp

Whilst the chorizo is crisping, trim, then chop the spring onions

3 2411 - Chorizo Potato Cakes With Eggs & Avo

Once the potatoes are done, drain them and return to the pot to steam dry

Mash the potatoes until smooth

Add half the cooked chorizo (reserve the pan, remaining chorizo and any oil for later), chopped spring onion and 1/4 tsp [1/2 tsp] salt and pepper and give it a good mix up – this is your potato cake mix

4 2411 - Chorizo Potato Cakes With Eggs & Avo

Shape the potato cake mix into 4 [8] chorizo potato cakes

Add the chorizo potato cakes to a lightly oiled baking tray

Put the tray in the oven for 12-15 min or until golden

Tip: If the potato cake mix is a little wet and not sticking together nicely, add a spoonful or two of flour

5 2411 - Chorizo Potato Cakes With Eggs & Avo

While the potato cakes are cooking, add the white wine vinegar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil to a large bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper and stir is all together – this is your dressing

Wash, then add the baby leaf salad to the dressing and give it a gentle mix up

6 2411 - Chorizo Potato Cakes With Eggs & Avo

Chop the chives finely

Cut the avocado[s] in half lengthways, around the stone[s]

Remove the stone[s] using a teaspoon

Scoop the avocado out of the skin[s] using a spoon and slice it finely, lengthways

7 2411 - Chorizo Potato Cakes With Eggs & Avo

Return the pan with the remaining chorizo to a medium-low heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil

Once hot, crack the eggs into the pan

Cook, covered for 2-3 min or until done to your liking
