Recipe #6 One-pan huevos rancheros

6 recipes down 100 to go.

We love breakfast!! One of our favourite things, no matter where we are in the world, is leisurely mornings having coffee and making breakfast together. So we decided to try a new breakfast recipe. We liked this recipe but would make a few adjustments next time. The potatoes didn’t have the nice crisp that we like… one of things we have learned on our cooking adventures together is that the flavour is all in the brown!! So next time we make this we would cook the sausage, garlic, parsley and peppers together in the pan and then remove them, set aside and then cook the potatoes in the same pan, without washing it, to get all those lovely brown bits and all that flavour in your potatoes. We would also add a bit more smoked paprika… LOVED the smoked paprika!! We hope you enjoy this recipe and adjust it to your preference.
