This is quite a free style recipe and can be changed to use what you have or suite your taste.
The main ingredients to keep are the bread, eggs, potato, garlic, some form of herbs and the bacon or chorizo.
This is how I choose to do it.
Take your two slices of bred and cut a hole in them to put an egg.
Keep the middles
Get all the ingredient ready because there is little down time. Prep as per list.
Add a glug of olive oil and a knob of butter to a large sauté pan,
Add the potatoes on a medium heat and allow to soften a little.
Add the finely diced bacon. (I use a dry cured smoked bacon because it's what I have)
Allow to fat to sizzle a little.
If the Chorizo is a cooking version then add it now. If not leave till the end.
When the potatoes are soft enough to eat but still have a crunch then add the leeks.
Allow the leeks to soften.
Add a touch more butter to give more colour if required.
If at any time the pan stops to gently sizzle add a little more Oive Oil.
Add the garlic, herbs and a pinch of chilli flakes. (Amount dependent on how hot you like it)
Put the skillet/griddle on to warm for toasting the bread.
Now is a good time to put a coffee on.
Keep an eye on the potato mix and toss when needed.
Put the bread on the griddle and allow one side to lightly toast.
When done remove the toast and oil the griddle.
Add the toast back (untoased side down) and crack an egg into each of the holes.
You may get a little leakage under the bread but this can be trimmed so no worries.
The eggy toast can be flipped for just a few seconds if that's how you like the eggs.
Mrs Orfy like her egg almost solid and I like mine runny and sunny side up. You can do them how you wish.
Serve with a pinch of black pepper, grated Parmesan and a touch of parsley if you have it.
