Eggs & Chorizo


Dry-cured Spanish chorizo is a simple way to bring some flair to your morning eggs. Crisp the chorizo in your frying pan first, which causes it to exude the fragrant spiced fats that you’ll use to scramble the eggs. Top with fresh chopped herbs or some crumbled cheese, if you like.
