Dip ‘n’ Share Eggs

Posted on

I’m going through something of a breakfast food obsession at the moment.

For a while I used to skip breakfast, especially at school when I’d have skipped anything for an extra half hour in bed. But in my old age I’ve found a new appreciation for all things brunch-like.

Smoothies, pancakes, bacon, toast (particularly with mum’s carb-free bread oddly enough), granola, & eggs, especially eggs.

This is a recipe inspired by a little brunch place in Los Angeles called Stella. They serve up “Moroccan Eggs” in tiny individual skillets to hungry, heavily caffeinated customers.

With a lack of tiny individual skillets and a distinct absence of Moroccan goodies in my cupboard I whipped up what I like to call “Dip ‘n’ Share Eggs”.

I thought I’d post it today while you’re (hopefully) still on holiday and with tomorrow’s hangover in mind. Knock this up for brunch and knock that hangover out of the park.

You can make endless variations on this recipe, just use the bits & pieces you have in the fridge.

To serve two I used:

Olive oil

1 large clove of garlic, crushed

1 small uncooked chorizo sausage

1 can of tinned tomatoes, crushed by hand

Handful of cherry tomatoes

Handful of chopped peppers

Sprinkle of salt, smoked paprika and dried chilli flakes

A blob of honey

Big pinch of chopped coriander (cilantro)

2 eggs

Handful of feta

Another pinch of coriander (cilantro)

And sourdough bread.

Start by chopping up your cherry toms and peppers.

If you can, choose a nice heavy based skillet/frying pan that you can serve your eggs in at the table. I used a small one for two people. If you’re feeding more, use a bigger one!

Heat it on a medium/high heat and add your olive oil. When it’s nice and hot add your chorizo, all sliced up and your crushed garlic.

Fry until the garlic turns golden & keep moving the sausage around.

Now add your cherry toms and your peppers (careful the fat doesn’t splatter you), then pour over your tinned tomatoes.

Sprinkle with a generous pinch of flaked salt.

Dust with smoked paprika, a good snow of chilli flakes and your blob (technical term) of honey.

Now you want this to cook away and reduce down for a good 15mins on a medium-low heat. Stir it now & then.

Once about half of the liquid has cooked off, add your first big pinch of chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves.

Give it a good mix about and break two eggs, gently onto the top.

They should poach away nicely in the sauce. While they’re cooking pop some of your bread onto toast.

If you’re cooking on an AGA, place them right onto the hob.

Otherwise, use the toaster!

When the eggs look almost done, crumble over your feta.

And sprinkle with the rest of your coriander.

Leave it to cook and melt for a few more moments.

And then serve (on a chopping board so you don’t burn the table).

Throw your toast, some forks and at least one spoon aboard too.

Now, grab that gorgeous creature you woke up with, dip that bread in ‘n’ share some of the best eggs you’ve had all year.

The ultimate way to start the new year with a bang.

I hope you have fun tonight, I plan on freezing my tail off at the fireworks so let’s hope it stays bright & clear! Fingers crossed my dress arrives in time…


Have you seen these yet?

    All I can say is ‘whoa!’ Shame my detox starts tomorrow, otherwise I’d be all over this!

  • That does look like good hangover food, or just a good breakfast in general. Maybe we’ll check out Stella on New Year’s Day, since we’ll be just around the corner. Thanks for the recommendation!

    – Rachel @ With Love, Rachel

    • Rosie

      Lucky you Rachel! Their scrambled eggs with procciuto and parmesan is also excellent. x

  • Aw this could not have come out at a more perfect time! I have a ‘bring a dish’ dinner party for 25(!!) to attend for NYE tonight and this would be perfect! Thanks Rosie!

    Hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas and have a wonderful New Years!

    • Rosie

      Thank you! Love from London! x

  • This is perfect timing for my New Year’s breakfast with the boyfriend. Definitely going to have to make this for him. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

    • Rosie

      Looks like he’s found a keeper πŸ˜‰

  • Megan Gale

    Omg this looks delicious. I want to make it in the morning but I only have goat cheese no feta. Hmmm I wonder if it would work as a substitute. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    • Rosie

      Would be so good with Goats cheese Megan!

  • Ohohoho that looks delicious! πŸ˜€
    Excuse me while I go and make it right now because I happen to have all of the ingredients! πŸ˜€

    • Rosie

      Eggstraordinary Rosie!

  • Absolutely adore the dress. Which colour did you go for? These eggs are exactly what my BF will be craving tomorrow. Would have made them for him this morning but I am one of those unfortunate people sitting at my desk until midday when I can kick everyone out the office!

    Have a lovely New Years and all the best for 2014!

    Katie <3

    • Rosie

      Oh no! Bad luck Katie!
      I went for red, think I’m a bit pale to pull off yellow at the mo!

      • Good shout. Red will look gorgeous on you. I really like the yellow one but can’t justify it with the paleness of my skin at the moment.. Maybe for summer πŸ˜‰ <3

  • I LOVE eggs, so definitely gonna try this! Love your dress choice too for NYE!

    Here’s to a fabulous year ahead, Happy 2014 Rosie xoxo

  • Tiff

    Can you please do a post on everything you got for Christmas? I want to see so bad!!

    • Rosie

      I’m afraid it wouldn’t be terribly exciting Tiff.
      I’m moving into a new apartment in a couple weeks so almost everything is for the new place!
      I hope you had a good one x

      • Kaleen

        Would be lovely to see your new apartment all made up when you’re done decorating! I love seeing people’s spaces as I have caught the decor bug in my boyfriend and I’d new home.

        Congrats on the new place!! It’s exciting and hectic πŸ™‚

        XoXo Kaleen

  • Alice

    Mother may I. This looks insane. I’m not out tonight sadly as I’ve done my back in this week and am fairly immobile, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a nice brunch, if anything, I deserve it more! x

    • Rosie

      Oh no Alice, you poor thing!
      You absolutely deserve this. Take it easy and eat it on the sofa! x

  • This looks so good!

  • Sandra

    Omg I need this.. looks utterly delicious! Hope you have a Happy New Year!

  • Yummy! I make Moroccan baked eggs all the time, in little ramekins. But I like the idea of the dip & share. Will def give this a whirl! Happy New Year R.

  • Ottolenghi has this! It goes by the name of Shakshuka, I did a post on it a while back with quite a similar recipe, but minus the chorizo and with added saffron. Chorizo sounds like a great addition though, will keep it in mind for the next time.

  • The slow pace

    That looks delicious! My traditional New year’s breakfast is really simple: a cup of coffe and a huge slice of pandoro, but I will try this recipe this year, that’s for sure!
    I hope you have a great 2014!

  • This looks gorgeous Rosie! As we’ve already planned a big lunch at my house to nurse our collective hangover, I’ll save this for the 2nd!

    Happy New Year from a devoted reader from Kampala! X

    This looks delicious! I’m going to make some eggs right now! Healthy and yummy (and right in line with my 2014 slogan of being the best me). Thanks for inspiring me to not just pour a bowl of cereal this morning since my Mr. is at work while I’m home.

    xoxo from the USA: Courtney

  • This looks absolutely scrumptious! Can’t wait to try it, anything with ‘brunch’ and ‘feta’ in the summary is a must-try! πŸ™‚ xo

  • Bethany Burroughs

    Sounds brilliant! I was wondering what to cook up – that would be easy – tomorrow morning. Eggs are actually the best thing to eat after a night of drinking to absolve your body of the hangover symptoms. That and coffee. Oh, and water. Happy New Year Rose!! xx

  • Carb-free bread! This is a thing? I would love a link for this if you have one.

    PS. As usual this looks absolutely delicious. I love a good egg…

  • Yum yum! Will definitely be trying this one.

  • House of Herby

    A little Scottish restaurant near me does a dish like this as an appetiser – they call it ‘gypsy eggs’. I’m either going to make this or go back,either way you’ve inspired me!

  • I already commented it but I wanted to update: I live on the east coast of the US and we’re anticipating a pretty big blizzard this evening. I’ve got all my warmest layers on, and I was inspired by your recipe to throw together a version of dip n’ share eggs using the ingredients I had in my kitchen! Leftover tomato sauce, garlic, and Italian seasoning ended up being very flavorful, and the taste of the poached egg was amazing. I’ve never poached eggs before, and I’m very excited about this! Thanks so much for the great idea. Cozy and full-bellied, I’m quite happy now πŸ™‚

    Best,

    Hi and Welcome yes looks very nice but I have to watch the tomatoes seeds not good for the Heart. I do quite a few omelettes bacon mushrooms mixed nuts and fruit two cloves of garlic I use the orange cheese seems to work well with the cholesterol I use 4 eggs NONE CAGED mix 4 eggs pinch of salt & Pepper two s/spoons of olive Oil milk same as you would put in tea mix well then pan on when hot and your grill is on throw it all in 5 mins take off the gas and under the monkey well grill use your left side then the right to equal the golden brown Omelette. I also make my own nut bars to make these I wouldn’t really give them away as nuts can be expensive to buy hazel Brazil nuts cob almonds mix fruit dates walnuts cashews linseed olive oil honey syrup oats pumpkin seeds sunflower seeds (no sugar) the cranberries cherries will be enough Cocoa nut and you can mix nutmeg cinnamon two handfuls of currants. feel the texture as you mix it all in then on to a tray in the oven 15 -20 mins so its just nice and brown take out leave to cool place grease paper over the top in the freezer half hour take out I use a spatula to line and cut through into bars then back into freezer 15 mins take the bars out turn them over put back into freezer to make the sticky side firm I wrap mine into grease paper like a parcel then use foil best to keep it nicely wrapped.12 bars and still got another tub for either making more or use for breakfast. or sell Β£1 a bar please note when you buy the nuts and fruit mix them down but not too small. Lubly jubly chew bar.

    Thank you Rosie for this recipe! This is the first of your recipes that I tried and my family was sufficiently satisfied (and perhaps slightly surprised with my culinary skills!). A perfect dish to share. Thumbs up all the way from New Zealand πŸ™‚

  • When I first saw the picture I thought it was going to be complex, but reading through I am definitely going to give it a go! I just need to find a skillet, or get my hands on a good frying pan and get cracking πŸ˜€

  • Looks good. Very good. Holy SHIP I need to make this.

  • Yes for breakfast. Also breakfast mad

  • Hailey

    These are called huevos rancheros – nothing new, you didn’t reinvent the wheel. A classic Mexican/ Southern US dish. Just call them what they are.

  • Cam Behan

    i think everyone i know is making this at the moment… slight addiction going on here in my town we are spreading the word on how tasty it is πŸ˜€ so yummy..

  • dramafan

    those are called juevos rancheros – rancher’s/farmer’s eggs its a spanish recipe

  • xenia

    the best breakfest ever , love it :):)

  • My take on the din’n’share eggs. Just added a few courgette pieces for extra crunch. Thanks for the recipe. Delish! x
