Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Makes: 4
Skill level: As easy as frying an egg


  • 8 large free range eggs
  • 4 tacos, tortillas or similar thin flatbreads
  • 1 or 2 ripe avocados – sliced
  • handful of coriander – roughly chopped
  • 1 or 2 chillies – finely sliced
  • 2 limes – quartered
  • chilli sauce – sweet or hot
  • sea salt

Put your tacos in a moderate oven for thirty seconds to heat through.

Meanwhile prepare your avocados and chop the chillies and coriander.


Next fry the eggs sunny side up in olive oil.

Roll up as best you can and enjoy as the egg yolk drips down your arm.

Verdict: A great spicy way to start the weekend and our latest favourite brunch here at Yumblog Cottage. The more generous you are with the ingredients, the tastier it becomes, so pile them on…and don’t think for a moment one fried egg would be enough.

Drink: A good strong cafe con leche.

Entertainment: As always on a Saturday morning, Danny Baker.
