Slice the onions. Crush the garlic cloves. Slice the red peppers. Slice the yellow peppers. Roughly chop the fresh coriander.


  1. 1 Grill the sausages for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden and cooked through. Slice them into bite-sized pieces.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, heat the oil in a deep frying pan and add the onion, garlic and peppers. Cook over a gentle heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden.
  3. 3 Add the paprika and cook for 1 minute, then add the tomatoes and 2 tbsp water. Cook gently until the tomatoes have burst. Season and stir in half the coriander. Stir in the sausages.
  4. 4 Make 4 indentations in the mixture and crack an egg into each one. Cover with a lid and cook over a gentle heat for 6-8 minutes, until the eggs have just set. Scatter over the remaining coriander and serve.

    My husband was not too sure about this when I described them to him- he was worried they would be too slimy. However, I persevered and we had them for a Sunday brunch. Needless to say they were delicious. Simple ingredients that were really tasty and filling!! Will be having again!!!

  • Mat

    Really enjoyed this! It was easy to follow instructions and tasted good! Although I swapped the paprika for chilli...

  • Hannah Gray

    Very easy. And very tasty

  • Theresa

    Have made this a few times now and it's quickly become a firm favourite.

  • Samantha 20man

    Very tasty dish and an easy to follow recipe. I used a tin of chopped tomatoes to avoid the skin on the cherry tomatoes. Whenever I use tomatoes, I like to add Worcester sauce and Tabasco. My husband and I enjoyed this dish with crusty bread. Will definitely make it again.

  • Charlotte

    I over cooked the veg & egg... :( but still a very tasty dish and I would definitely do it again, just keep an eye on timing !

  • Lizzie

    Loved this recipe - easy to put together after dinner and lots of veg/salad to keep things healthy. Left out some of the oil (just used a bit of the sausage juice) to keep it healthier so a big extra water was needed. Bright colourful tasty dinner!

  • ChShep

    Really delicious, easy to prepare/cook & great for my low carb diet. I made a couple of substitutions- 100g of tomatoes & 200g of chopped tomatoes I swapped the reduced fat sausages for the M&S 93% pork content ones.

  • Suzanne

    Very easy and quick to make. Really tasty. My husband and I really enjoyed this, will be making again!

  • Natalie

    Really tasty! I read some of the reviews before making and definitely agree with adding some chopped tomatoes, Worcester sauce and Tabasco to give it a bit more flavour.

  • Paige

    I've now made this dish twice and myself and my partner have really enjoyed both times. Also a nice easy recipe to make.

  • Brenda short

    This was a good dish, but not the proper Mexican huevos rancheros. To get it a bit closer to authentic, serve each egg on a crispy tortilla, sprinkle pico de gallo, avocado, feta cheese, and black beans. Add salsa for a kick.

  • Andrea

    Really tasty. Served with crusty bread. Tabasco lifted it and can see how some Worcestershire sauce and additional tomatoes would make it even tastier. Will definitely make again soon.

  • Kalie

    Really enjoyed this dish. Great with sour dough toast.

  • Laura

    Loved it!

  • Helen

    Loved this but tweaked a bit adding more paprika and seasoning The recipe was easy to follow and has inspired me to try more as was in a bit of a cooking rut and was fed up with the same old things Smoked haddock kedgeree next
