This delicious breakfast recipe includes a spicy tomato and chilli sauce with fried eggs and small flat breads – it also goes great with refried beans giving you just what you need for the day ahead.

Ingredients

  • 5–6tbsp lard or dripping
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1–2 red chillies, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 tins plums tomatoes
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon piloncillo or demerara sugar
  • A generous few splashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • A small handful of chopped tarragon
  • 4 corn tortillas, chapattis or other flat breads
  • 4 eggs
  • 60g Lancashire cheese

Method

  • First, get the tomato sauce cooking. Heat 2 tablespoons of the lard in a wide saucepan and add the onion and chilli.

  • Let them sweat over a low heat for 10 minutes until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic, cook for a few minutes more, and then add the tomatoes. Season the sauce well with salt, pepper, sugar and Worcestershire sauce, breaking up the tomatoes with a wooden spoon to make a roughly textured sauce. Leave the tomatoes to gently cook over a low heat for half an hour, adding a little water if they get too dry.

  • When you are ready to eat, melt 1 to 2 tablespoons of the lard in a frying pan and gently turn the flat breads in the fat. Put them in a low oven, wrapped in foil, to keep warm, along with four plates. Add the tarragon to the sauce and stir.

  • Melt the rest of the lard in the frying pan and turn the heat right up until the fat is sizzling. Fry the eggs, two at a time, spooning the lard over the top of them so that they turn a golden colour at the edges and absorb some of the flavour. Season the eggs well with salt and pepper.

  • Put a flat bread on each plate and top with the tomato sauce. Put a fried egg on top and scatter with the grated Lancashire cheese.
