Chorizo and egg bake

Today's dinner was protein packed, super quick and very filling. It totally hit the spot. I absolutely love Spanish smoked chorizo and always have a pack of it in my store cupboard. It reminds me of Goan sausage curry, which I am absolutely crazy about. I might attempt it some time with the Spanish chorizo, but today it contributed to a simple egg bake. If you don't eat pork you can use any other sausage, just add some paprika and some extra garlic to it. If you don't eat meat at all then make it with lots of vegetables - it tastes really good too. 
Since it was just the 2 of us, there is some left over, so tomorrow's breakfast is sorted :)

Serves 3-4

140 gms smoked chorizo sausage chopped

5 eggs
100 gms grated cheddar cheese (I used low fat cheddar)
1 onion finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 red chilli chopped (You can use green chilli)
Salt and pepper to taste
Steamed vegetables as a side (optional)


Preheat the oven to 170 C

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, add the grated cheese, onion, chorizo, garlic and chopped chilli. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer to a lightly greased baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with some steamed vegetables or salad. We had it with steamed broccoli, seasoned with some garlic salt. :)
