EoMEoTE #4: Chorizo and rocket

I've been meaning to join in an EoMEoTE (End of Month Eggs on Toast Extravaganza) ever since I saw the first version way back in December last year. Eggs, toast... is this not the international brunch of choice? With limitless opportunities for culinary entrepreneurship? Brilliant, brilliant idea Anthony and Jeanne!

As usual though, time crept up on me so when I saw Julia's punctual post on her EoMEoTE for version #4 this morning, I shrieked and raced to the fridge to see what was available.


Toasted ciabatta with scrambled egg, chorizo and rocket

I love good chorizo.
I also love rocket.

Hello EoMEoTE #4!

I have always loved the taste sensation of chorizo oils soaking into crusty bread. This version had the bonus of spicy seared chunks of sausage contrasting with soft silky eggs and cut through with the peppery cleansing effect of rocket.

Mmm... Is it too early for sangria...?

    ...I shrieked and raced to the fridge to see what was available.You really cracked me up. That was priceless, AG. :)

    And now you've got me hankering to race to the supermart to buy some chorizo!

    Hi AG,

    Both you and Julia are too punctual for this one! =P

    I haven't even thought of what I was going to make yet. Hmmmm, better get moving! I need to run to the grocery store. I don't even have eggs in the fridge! =)

    *yikessssss*
    *shrieeeekkkkkkk*
    I have missed out yet another EoMEoTE! and another IMBB too! *cry*
    I definitely need some sort of reminder system here. :p

    The chorizo looks yummyyyyyyy! I love rockets too. I like the nutty flavour in it. I love scramble eggs too. And I love sausage of any kind! This is just my type of breakfast...er..Actually I would have it for brunch.

    Hi Julia - *grin* It was true. I woke up bleary eyed all set to leave the house in an hour for the first ever Sydney bloggers yumcha...then saw your posting!

    I cooked, plated up and photographed pretty darn quick!

    Then gobbled it all up before racing off to yumcha and gobblings lots more!

    Hi Reid - Nah I totally forgot. But I do work best under deadline!

    I was never one of those gloating students who handed in their assignments early. This is quite a change.

    Hi Jeanne - No you have the hardest job... collating all the entries! I'm looking forward to seeing them all.

    And don't worry about typos. They're just like laughter lines. Sign of a good time!

    Hi pinkcocoa - It's not too late. You have until Fri/Sat to post according to Jeanne's EoTEoME rules & regs entry.

    Chorizo rocks. I should've seared it a little more though...

    Welcome friend, or as they say in Japan yokoso tamagochiAnd chorizo!

    Pink Cocoa: you most certainly are OK, the event is most accepting of laziness and tardiness - it is part of the founding ethos. I think we've had an entry that was a month late.

    Hi Anthony - Hajimemashite! Dozo yoroshiku.

    Chorizo ain't half as kickin' as your shiraz-side-up creation.


    Pinkcocoa - I'm looking forward to your EoMEoTE. Will it be pink? Will it have chocolate? Will it incorporate yuzu or okara in some form or fashion? :P

    Your dish looks lovely; I'm sure my husband is going to want this (not for me, what with being a vegetarian and all...).

    Of course, there are some half-way decent veggie sausages on the market...and I love any excuse to eat eggs!

    Hi Stephanie - Glad you liked it. Veggie sausages are ok but the best bit about chorizo is the chilli-infused oil which leaks out! :P

    I do love my sauteed mushrooms and scrambled eggs on toast too...
