Method

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Heat a large, heavy-based ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat until hot, then add 1 tsp oil and the paprika and cook for 30 secs, stirring constantly. Add the chorizo and cook for 30-60 secs until lightly browned, then transfer to a bowl, leaving the oil in the pan.
  2. Fry the eggs in the pan for 2-3 mins until lightly crisped. Sprinkle over the chorizo and crumble over the feta, avoiding the yolks.
  3. Place the frying pan under the grill for 1-2 mins until the tops of the yolks are just set, but still runny inside (or to your liking).
  4. Top with the spring onions and parsley (if using). Serve with yogurt on the side, if you like.
