Mexican Baked Potato Nests

Mexican Eggs
This is one of the recipes from the Spiralize Now cookbook. I will share this one recipe from it but I recommend you get it as it is just £5 and brilliant, with lots and lots of yummy recipes. I had bought the various ingredients for these but as I had both my strict vegetarians at home I decided to follow the recipe somewhat but to replace the chorizo with Quorn Sausages. I also substituted Sriracha sauce for the chillies in the books recipe and omitted the coriander. So it is a bit different than the one you’ll find in the book. But, hey, this is the Dutch Mama cooking!

To serve 4:

  • 4 yorkshire pudding tin
  • Preheated oven to 180 °C (350 °F)
  • 2 potatoes approx 400 g peeled and spiralized
  • 1 small onion spiralized (keep in a separate bowl)
  • 2 tbs olive oil ( i like using coconut oil but it really needs to be liquid to coat the potatoes)
  • 75 g chorizo or 3 Quorn sausages, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove finely chopped or crushed
  • ½ pepper finely chopped
  • A squirt of sriracha sauce (as much or as little as you like, but remember it is spicy!)
  • 1 small 200g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp of tomato puree
  • 4 eggs
  • Smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper


Switch your oven on to heat up.

Peel and spiralize the potatoes add to a bowl and pour your olive oil on them. Add pepper and salt to taste and mix till they are all coated. Divide these over the 4 yorkshire tins and bake for 10 min.

Now take the sliced Quorn Sausages and start frying them in a bit of oil. Add about a heaped teaspoon of SMOKED paprika and a squirt of Sriracha Sauce and season with a bit of salt and pepper to taste. This will simulate the spiciness of the chorizo sausage. Fry them over a low heat so they get coated and soak up the flavours. Set aside.

Now fry the onions, peppers and garlic till soft add the can of tomatoes and after heating this through add the sausage back to the mix.

Take the potato nests out of the oven and push the centres down with a spoon to make a hollow Topt this with the vegetable and sausage mixture making the hollow again. Crack an egg into the hollow and season. Put the tray back in the oven for about 10 min or until the eggs are set.

I served these with a fresh salad but they are perfectly nice on their own.
