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

Ingredients:
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)
Butter
Salt

Procedure:

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.
