Moroccan egg & potato hash with Merguez


  • Cook the potatoes in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water until just tender. Then drain and quarter.
  • At the same time, blanch the sausages in plenty of boiling water until just firm to the touch and drain well.
  • Then heat a large saute (or non-stick pan), spray with a little oil and cook the sausages, covered, until browned. Add the potatoes and spread out in one layer. Turn the heat down a little, cover and cook for about 10 mins until golden, turning every now and again. Then add the tomatoes, garlic, 2 tspn harissa and a little salt. Mix well, cover and gently cook for about another 5 mins until the tomatoes have collapsed a bit. 
  • Whisk the eggs with the cumin and seasonings.
  • Heat the oil in another non-stick pan and scramble the eggs very lightly. Then stir into the sausage mixture, sprinkle with parsley and taste for seasoning.
  • Serve with a dollop of yoghurt on top with the tomato chutney mixed with a little harissa and a simple green salad on the side.
