This week we just felt like having breakfast for dinner. The rocket and chorizo hash is our take on a classic breakfast meal in the US, though I’m not sure it’s quite as popular over here! Don’t fret, readers, we haven’t gone barbarian on you – the chorizo is a Quorn product, as you are about to see.
This was a great recipe to make – I kind of ad libbed the whole thing but it worked out delicious, which is always fun. The peppery taste of the rocket goes so nicely against the spicy sausage chunks, and the potato really brings it all together. It turned out a tiny bit greasy, but I put that down to being a little overzealous with the oil – after making fritters (which you will see next week!) I think I was being too pour-happy!
It’s a very easy recipe to change up if you want some other flavours. Spinach is a classic choice for this meal and you could also try out other types of sausage – I reckon hot dogs would work nicely. A bit of garlic is essential to this one but you could experiment with other herbs and spices too – even bring a bit of sweetness in!
Here’s the video, and scroll down for the full recipe!
- Packet of Quorn chorizo sausages (2)
- 2 large handfuls of rocket
- 1 onion
- 250g potato
- 2 garlic cloves
- Cut the chorizo into chunks and put into a frying pan with a little oil.
- Cook over a medium heat for around 5 minutes, until browning at the edges.
- Meanwhile, chop the onion.
- Set the chorizo aside and cook the onion in the same pan for around 10 minutes until soft.
- Meanwhile, chop the potato into small chunks - you may leave the skin on or peel them as you prefer.
- Chop the garlic into thin slices.
- Add the potato and garlic to the frying pan and cook until the potato starts to brown.
- Add the rocket and chorizo and mix thoroughly.
- Cook gently for 5 minutes until heated through - the rocket will be just starting to melt.
- Best served with your favourite sauce drizzled over the top! You can also fry an egg for an extra protein boost and dip your potatoes into the yolk.
