Recipe: George St Canteen’s Mediterranean Breakfast

St Albans institution, George St Canteen is THE best brunch spot. We've got hold of their Mediterranean Breakfast recipe so that you can create a holiday-style brunch at home.

Mediterranean Breakfast

Serves 2, 30 minutes


2 sweet potatoes, cut into wedges
Drizzle of rapeseed oil
Freshly ground black pepper and salt, to
2 good quality chorizo sausages (each
about 70g)
1 bunch of cherry tomatoes on the vine
Splash of white wine vinegar
4 medium eggs
1 avocado
½ lemon
Tabasco sauce, to taste


Preheat the oven to 200°c.

Put the sweet potato wedges into a roasting tin, drizzle with oil and season with a little salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes until crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.
Meanwhile, put the chorizo in a frying pan and fry for about 5 minutes until slightly crispy, and then add the tomatoes. Cook for another 3 to 4 minutes until the tomatoes are softened.
Meanwhile, put a large pan of water on to boil with a splash of white wine vinegar for the poached eggs. Poach the eggs to your liking (we find that 3 minutes is perfect).
Halve the avocado and scoop the flesh out into a bowl. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, some salt and pepper and a splash of Tabasco sauce. Mash together.
When the eggs are ready, plate everything up and drizzle over the chorizo cooking oils over the eggs.
