    This Spanish breakfast recipe is guaranteed to be a winner!
    I could not resist making this adaptation of a classic English breakfast using traditional Spanish ingredients like soft cooking chorizo, smoked pancetta and morcilla black pudding and serve them with a crispy duck egg and fried bread.


    1. Pre-heat your grill to the highest setting and your oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
    2. Place the potato slices on a baking tray lined with non-stick paper, season with salt and a drizzle of olive oil and cook in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Place on a tray lined with some kitchen paper and keep warm in the oven.
    3. To cook the chorizo sausages, add the sausages to a hot frying pan with a drop of oil and fry for 2 minutes on each side. Place in the oven and cook for about 6 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden. Keep warm in the oven.
    4. For the tomatoes, cut the tomatoes across the centre/or in half lengthways and with a small, sharp knife remove the green 'eye'. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil, one garlic slice and a piece of thyme. Place under the grill and cook without moving for about 6 minutes or until tender but still holding their shape.
    5. For the black pudding, heat a medium sized frying pan, add the oil and fry the pieces of morcilla for 2 minutes on each side until crispy. Keep warm in the oven.
    6. For 'proper' fried bread it's best to cook it in a separate pan. Ideally, use bread that is a couple of days old. Heat a frying pan to a medium heat and cover the base with oil. Add the bread and cook for 2-3 minutes each side until crispy and golden. If the pan becomes too dry, add a little more oil. For a richer flavour, add a knob of butter after you turn the slice.
    7. Place the smoked pancetta slices on a grilling tray and cook straight under the grill for 2 minutes each side or until your preferred crispiness is reached. Like the sausages, the cooked pancetta can be kept hot on a plate in the oven.
    8. For the fried duck eggs, break the eggs straight into a really hot frying pan with one finger of oil and fry for 60 seconds or until the egg white is golden crispy and fully cooked. Season and gently remove with a fish slice.
    9. Once all the ingredients are cooked, serve on warm plates and enjoy straight away.
