I use the term shakshuka loosely here, as these poached eggs in chorizo-tomato sauce are inspired by the popular Middle Eastern and northern African dish. The result is an “eggs in purgatory” vibe with a mild hit of spice from the chorizo.


  • 2 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 220 g Woolworths smoked Spanish chorizo pork sausage, roughly chopped
  • 1 x 400 g can whole unpeeled cherry tomatoes
  • 4 Woolworths free-range eggs
  • fresh herbs, for serving (optional)
  • pita, for serving

1. Heat a pan and add the olive oil. Fry the chorizo until crispy. Add the tomatoes and stir through.

2. Crack in the eggs and place a lid on the pan. Cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes for a nice, gooey yolk. Serve with warm pitas.
