This gorgeous breakfast is perfect for weekends or a lazy brunch. It also makes a great supper when you can eat the whole thing to yourself!

  • #To Finish#
  • 2 medium free-range eggs

  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Few sprigs fresh coriander


  • Spray a large non-stick frying pan with olive oil and place over a medium heat Add the onion, pepper and garlic and fry for 5 minutes until softened. Stir in the smoked paprika and tomatoes. Fill the tomato tin about a quarter full of water to rinse it round and then add to the pa Simmer for 10-15 minutes until the sauce is rich and thick and any excess water has evaporated. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Crack one egg into a cup. Make a small well in the sauce and gently lower the egg into the well. Repeat with the second egg. Season the eggs with a little salt and pepper.
