The Boy and I go out to eat quite a bit on the weekends especially for brunches. However, occasionally we do like to chill out at home and not have to leave the bed especially in this cold wintry season.

“Oh Spring, where art thou?”

On weekends like these, especially on Sundays when the thought of the dreadful Monday blues threatens to demoralise us, we opt for a good home cooked lazy Sunday recipe :)

On days like these, you want to get up, make a cup of coffee, throw something on the pan and pop it into the oven and crawl back under the warm sheets.

*ding* *ding* Sip, relax and read up on the latest news or catch up on the latest gossip via your phone and voilá!

Before you know it, breakfast is done :)

So, which lazy cooking recipe would be perfect for the relaxing lazy Sunday laid out above?

It involves eggs (oozy ones), chorizo, beans, tomato and corn!

Spanish Baked Eggs & Chorizo with Steamed Sweet Corn Recipe

2 large Eggs (room temperature)
1 mid-sized Chorizo (sliced diagonally)
1 can (400g) of Diced Tomatoes
1 can (400g) of Cannellini Beans or Butter Beans (washed and drained)
1 French Shallot (diced)
2 Garlic Cloves (diced)
1/2 tsp of Smoked Paprika
1/4 tsp of Ground Cumin
1/4 tsp of Cayenne Pepper
1 tsp of Parsley Flakes
1 Tbsp of Ketchup
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil

2 Sweet Corns (washed and peeled)


Preheat your oven to 200°C (degrees Celsius).

In a pan, heat olive oil on medium heat and add in diced garlic and French shallots. Cook until fragrant but careful not to burn them.

Add diced tomatoes, cannellini/butter beans, chorizo slices, smoked paprika, ground cumin, cayenne pepper and ketchup. Cook for about 6-8 minutes till it reduces slightly.
(Note: I’m adding the chorizo slices now rather than later because I prefer them to be cooked through but you can always add them just before placing the dish in the oven)

Turn heat off and add in parsley flakes with salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer into individual cazuelas (terracotta dish) or baking dishes. Make a well in the middle and break an egg into each dish.

Place each dish into the oven and cook for 8-12 minutes depending on how you want the yolk (oozy or solid). It will take longer to cook if the eggs are straight from the fridge.
(Note: It’s best to keep an eye out on the yolk as different ovens and baking dishes/cazuelas (flat or tall) may vary in cooking time)

Place sweet corn in a steamer and steam for 10-15 minutes. It should change to a slightly darker yellow and looking “plump” when cooked.

Once the baked eggs are done, take them out of the oven carefully (it’s hot!) and sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper. Garnish with fresh chervil or parsley.

Once the sweet corns are done, take them out of the steamer and brush all sides with butter. Do this while they are still hot and the butter should just melt through.

Season with salt.

And there you have it, a lazy Sunday breakfast recipe. Quick and easy. Eat them while they’re still hot.

  1. My favourite breakfast meal is a packet of 2 minutes noodle (spicy kim chi flavour please!) cooked with lots of veggies and fishballs served with coffee. And my favourite person to share this is with my lovely boyfriend.

    • Nice! I do that for supper!

    • Where art thou indeed?

  2. Ohhh we have a very similar recipe for baked eggs hehe :) But we don’t have beans i think I should add them and I like the idea of steam sweet corn hehe thanks for the recipe 😀

    I should cook more brunches at home and stop eating out hehe
    Daisy@Nevertoosweet recently posted…Alphabakes – Tomato Soup Cupcake

    • Excellent! We should all eat at home more 😛

  3. My ideal lazy Sunday breakfast would be one that I don’t need to cook. Therefore I would like to have my breakfast meal with my cooking idol Heston Blumenthal and he would cook for me. He would make what looks like sausages and eggs but is actually a sweet breakfast.
    Thanh recently posted…Rabbit Stew With White Beans And Chorizo Recipe

    • Heston FTW!

  4. How good are baked eggs for making at home. My ideal lazy Sunday breakfast would be eggs benedict – I have a worrying addiction to Hollondaise sauce!
    Cara @ Gourmet Chick recently posted…Middle Park Hotel

    • Yum! Would you eat it with the Pope? Geddit geddit?

  5. Bacon and Eggs plus poached eggs and pork belly and chickpeas or baked eggs with… stuff lol is what I want on a lazy Sunday morning!

    That Baked Egg and Chorizo looks delish – A WINNING DISH! 😀

    • U didn’t start with RAGEEEE? Hahahaha

  6. That breakkie looks amazing! My ideal lazy Sunday breakfast is just to have a small quiet one at home with the family and not having to rush off to work. And, of course, it helps if Hubby cooks it and delivers it to me in bed with the kids snuggled next to me :)
    Cherrie recently posted…Banoffee Meringues

    • Well you do have a super busy schedule! I want the Boy to cook ever meal! Oh wait, he already does 😛 BWAHAHAHAHA

  7. Oh, those cups are great! We never have enough little ones around the place.

    My dream ideal Sunday breakfast would see my husband and I back in Venice downing a machiatto and then wandering the streets with a pastry in hand.

    Meanwhile, back in the real world, it would be home made baked beans on grainy toast with a coffee, blue sky and sunshine … oh wait, we’re in Melbourne aren’t we, maybe the blue sky and sunshine are dreaming too 😀 !!
    CheezyK recently posted…Three Things Thursday – Olympic Edition

    • Oh oh! I want to go to Venice!!! Waaaaaa

    • Yup! Easy peasy lemon squeasy!

  8. Haven’t had spanish eggs in a couple of years. Found yours and gave it a try, and apart from overfilling the baking dish and slightly overflowing, they were awesome!
    Thanks from this kitchen-idiot. If I can make them, anyone can.

    • Aww thank you. That really means a lot :) Hope you perfect the overflowing bit!

      • Re-did the next day with larger baking dish, extra couple of eggs on top, and all’s good. Think it’ll be a regular thing now. Cheers :)

        • Hooray!

  9. Just dropping past to say how much I enjoyed this recipe! Very easy and most importantly very, very tasty. This was actually a trial run for me to see if we liked this…it got the big thumbs up so it will be served to around 18 people for breakfast as part of my hubby’s 40th! Thank you for such a delish dish and I’m looking forward to exploring your other recipes.

    • Oh my! Thanks so much :) I’m so glad it worked out! Let me know how the party turns out :)

  10. First of all, I am very thankful to blog owner , This is very interesting post for me . thanks a lot keep it good work
