Mexican Breakfast Eggs

This brunch-time favourite recipe is not only ridiculously tasty but also very nutritious with protein, vegetables and spices all rolled into a one-plate wonder!

I like to make this on a lazy Saturday, with “Your Favourite Coffee Break” playlist on Spotify running in the background. I would patiently wait for the egg to poach slowly in the pan while humming along to the morning sunshine.

Have a go with this delicious recipe and enjoy your cosy weekend brunch ๐Ÿ˜Š


  • Olive oil
  • 1 red onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 1 green pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 5 ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 4 British Lion Eggs
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Small bunch of coriander for garnish


  1. Heat a large pan on medium heat and sweat the diced onions until soft and translucent for 5 minutes. Add the red and green peppers and continue to cook for 5 minutes, then add theย garlic and chill to continue to cook for 2 more minutes.
  2. Next, add the cumin seats with the mixture and cook for a further 2 more minutes. Finally, it’s time for the tomatoes to be added, and slowly cooked for 15-20 minutes until the tomatoes have collapsed in the pan turning into sauce.
  3. Now it’s the time for seasoning to your taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Once ready, make 4 wells in the tomato sauce and crack 1ย egg inย each well to poach the eggs in the sauce.
  5. Cover the pan to slowly poach the eggs for 5-6 minutesย to your liking. I like it to be slightly runny in the yolk with a firmly set egg white.
  6. Chop up the coriander finely and sprinkle over the egg mixture. Enjoy with some toast to mop up the yummy sauce!
