Scale

Ingredients

  • 9 eggs
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 x chorizo sausages, sliced
  • 1 x 330g tin of black beans
  • 6 slices bacon of your choice, chopped
  • 700 grams frozen pastry (shortcrust or puff)

Instructions

  1. A 20.5 x 20.5cm cake pan, or a round or rectangle 23cm metal pie dish is ideal.
  2. Heat oven to 200°C. Use two thirds of the pastry to line a shallow greased 23cm pie tin (roll pastry out on a floured board if you’re using a block rather than sheets).
  3. Drain the beans and place in a medium bowl. Add the sliced onion, smoked paprika, cumin, chorizo slices, and bacon. Stir well.
  4. Spread the bean mixture over the bottom of the pastry.
  5. Crack 8 eggs on top and gently mix in with a fork. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Use the remaining pastry to make a lid. Crimp the pastry edges together with a fork and trim off any excess.
  7. Cut four small vents in the pastry lid with a sharp knife.
  8. Brush with a beaten egg mix and bake 35 – 40 minutes until rich golden brown and crispy.
  9. Serve warm, or cold with your favourite spicy relish.
