With a nod to shakshuka, The Londoner’s Moroccan-inspired Dip ‘n’ Share Eggs cuts the cumin and saffron but with no compromise on flavour.
Easy to make in one big pan, this recipe encourages you to use whatever you have to hand – be sure to include chorizo though. As the meat cooks, delicious juices soak into the peppers and tomatoes. Devilishly moreish, this portion is plenty for two – if you can bear to share.

With an interesting use for the classic British ingredient, Rose Prince combines black pudding, paprika, olives and capers for a hearty brunch dish packed with plenty of heat.
While black pudding isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, this is a great recipe to introduce it in a different setting. Serve with a bloody mary cocktail for the ultimate warming combination.
