Mexican Eggs On My New Induction Cooking Range!

We just got our brand new slide in induction range! It is a classic design with state of the art features. It’s been a week that the Samsung induction range has been in our house – and we are on a spree to cook food from around the world! And yesterday I made some really yummy Mexican eggs! I had been wondering exactly how to go about it. But then I came across this really easy peasy recipe online! And might I say – the recipe was a hit, and an absolute keeper!

It has already gone into my recipe collection scrapbook, along with a photo of the completed dish for posterity.

And now I am about to share this with you!


To make this you will need:

•    Olive oil – 1 tbsp
•    Garlic clove (crushed) – 1
•    Brown onion (finely diced) – 1 small
•    Smoked paprika – 1 tsp
•    Tomatoes (roughly chopped) – 300 grams
•    Red capsicum (seeds removed and finely chopped) – ½
•    Chicken stock – 80 ml
•    Eggs – 2
•    Coarsely grated cheddar – 2 tbsp
•    Parsley (chopped) – to serve
•    A 20 cm heavy non-stick frying pan

Now for the instruction:

1.    Place the saucepan over heat and heat the olive oil.
2.    Once oil is warmed throw in the garlic and onion and fry for about 2 minutes on a medium low heat, or till the onions are translucent and softened.
3.    Throw in the paprika and stir. Cook for another 1 minute.
4.    Now throw in the capsicum followed by the tomatoes.
5.    Stir and let it come up to a simmer. Cook on the simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. By this time the tomatoes will be soft.

6.    Now pour in the stock and put on a cover for the ingredients to cook and the flavors to meld together.
7.    In roughly 5 minutes, the whole mix should have thickened.
8.    Add salt and pepper to your liking and stir.
9.    Now cook uncovered for another half a minute.
10.    Now make a hollow in one side of the gravy and break in the egg carefully.
11.    Repeat with the other egg on the other side. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or till the eggs are done. If you like the tops to be more cooked, just throw on a loose fitting lid.
12.    Now quickly pour over the grated cheddar and parsley and serve with fresh toast!

This makes for a great dish – so do give it a shot!
