The idea for my chorizo and sweetcorn hash came from a cafe local to us. People kept saying how good theirs was, but it wasn’t gluten free. So I decided to make my own version! I had some cooked potatoes leftover from the previous night’s dinner and really, it all went from there. Simply add the other ingredients, crack in some eggs and bung it in the oven. Bish, bosh, bash, done.
Once I got the timings nailed, this turned into a recipe which is so versatile it can be used for any meal! The spicy chorizo pairs perfectly with the runny yolks, and I love it with some fresh parsley sprinkled on top for extra flavour and colour. I normally share this dish with my partner Steve as a kind of brunch/pre-lunch snack, but to be honest I would eat the whole thing on my own too as a meal!
The perfect gluten free brunch – or dinner!
I’m definitely trying to create more recipes at the moment which are one-pan-wonders or just really simple to cook. This reflects my usual style of cooking! Sometimes I love nothing more than to set aside a few hours to bake, or to cook a really special dinner. But usually time is precious (and somewhat rare) so I need quick and easy meals I can throw together after the gym, or while I’m working.
I know a lot of you guys feel the same – so I’ll definitely be publishing more quick and easy meal ideas in the coming months. If there’s anything you’d like to see then please do let me know! Or if you have a go-to midweek meal you love cooking, please do share it with me. I love finding new recipes which quickly become a household favourite.

Chorizo and sweetcorn hash
This gluten free chorizo and sweetcorn hash is a super easy dinner or brunch idea. This can be shared between 2 people or made for one hungry person!
- 400 g cooked potatoes (in approx 1-inch cubes)
- 75 g chopped chorizo
- 1 small red onion (finely chopped)
- 150 g tinned sweetcorn
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 large eggs (or 4 if you want 2 per person!)
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
- Salt and pepper (to taste)
Preheat the oven to 180'C. Add the olive oil to a frying pan (or ovenproof skillet) and heat on a medium heat.
Add the chorizo and onions and fry for 2-3 minutes until the onions soften. Next add the sweetcorn and potato and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring until everything is mixed together.
If using a frying pan, transfer the potato-mix into an ovenproof dish. Make little wells for the eggs using a spoon and crack them into the wells.
Place in the oven for approx 8 minutes, or until the whites have just set. Take out of the oven, sprinkle with salt, pepper and the chopped parsley and serve hot.
