Chorizo Breakfast Toasties

A great way to celebrate the weekend, spicy chorizo sausage and gruyere cheese toasties served with a fried egg and roast tomatoes. 

Serves: 4


8 slices of sourdough
4 chorizo sausages, skins discarded
200 grams gruyere cheese
4 tablespoons fruit chutney
50 grams butter
8 tomatoes
4 eggs
cracked pepper
fresh parsley, optional


Preheat the oven to 170ºC. 

Place tomatoes on a lined baking tray and roast until soft and juicy, this should take 20–25 minutes.

In a non-stick fry pan over a medium heat, fry chorizo mince until golden and crispy. Chorizo is very fatty so no oil is needed for frying. 

Place 4 pieces of sourdough on a chopping board. Smear each piece with fruit chutney and top with a slice of gruyere cheese, a large spoonful of chorizo mince and another slice of cheese. Then, place another piece of sourdough on top. 

Melt ½ the butter in a large non-stick fry pan. Place 2 toasties in the pan and fry on both sides until golden brown and cheese has melted. Add the other ½ of the butter and fry remaining toasties.

Fry eggs in a non-stick frypan. Season with salt and pepper and serve with extra fruit chutney and parsley.
