Chow Down to Eurovision 2016 Good Morning Australia

With the incredible performance of Dami Im last night in Semi Final 2 it makes perfect sense to have an Australian focus on the Chow Down to Eurovision....Breakfast!

Apart from crazed screaming it is difficult to put into words the feeling of being in the Globen arena and witnessing the response to Dami's performance. People jumped to their feet applauding in the biggest reaction of any song for the night. 

I could not be prouder of Dami representing our country to show the amazing talent and diversity that makes us a great and potential Eurovision winning nation? (I know better not put the mockers on it)

So for everyone back in Australia getting up at 5am to cheer Dami on you are going to need a good hearty breakfast......which would also work in Stockholm after leaving Euroclub in time for breakfast! (yet to find a kebab van) 

I have kept the Eurovision flavour drawing from Spain with a simple hot breakfast you can just pop in the oven.
You can make the sauce ahead and just put it together at 4.30am so its ready for when the Eurovision theme tune rings out at 5am!

Spanish baked eggs
  • 1 large brown onion diced
  • 4 large roma tomatoes chopped
  • 1 red capsicum de-seeded and chopped
  • Olive oil
  • 4-5 large potatoes cooked
  • 1 large red onion
  • 2 chorizo
  • 100g pancetta
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 3 red capsicums
  • 6 eggs
  • Chilli optional
    • Sauce: Add a large splash of olive oil to a heavy based saucepan
    • On a very low heat add diced onions and simmer for about five minutes
    • Add the chopped tomatoes and capsicum and simmer on low for about 20-30 minutes
    • Blend
    • Roughly chop the cooked potatoes
    • Slice the chorizo and pancetta 
    • Roughly chop red onion, capsicums and tomatoes
    • In a large pan add more olive oil
    • Lightly fry chorizo, pancetta and red onion
    • Add potato, tomato and capsicum 
    • Add sauce and stir to combine
    • Make indents with the back of  ladle and crack in the eggs
    • Bake at 180°C for 20 minutes (15 if you like a runny egg)

    You can add more eggs if required....just squeeze them in

    Top with some sliced chilli to give you that extra wake up call
