Breakfast egg inferno (Vegetarian)

Breakfast egg inferno (Vegetarian)

I love eggs in the morning and I love huevos rancheros but I wanted something hotter this morning, so here it is!  Hold on to your hat!

Ingredients for 1 serving

2 whole eggs
1 egg whites
52g peppers, sliced
46g onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
6 pickled jalepeno slices
6g olive oil
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
95g chopped tomatoes
4 drops hot sauce
20g cheddar cheese, grated
120g spinach
5g fresh coriander, chopped
salt and pepper

(Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)


  • Put a frying pan onto a medium heat.
  • Add the peppers, spring onion and jalepeno slices to soften for a minute before adding the garlic.
  • Cook for a further minute before adding the chopped tomatoes, smoked paprika and a little seasoning to taste.
  • When the tomatoes start to bubble, add the spinach and pop a lid on to wilt the spinach for a minute.
  • Spread the spinach around the pan before adding your eggs.
  • Crack a whole egg into a ramekin, add some of the egg white and pour into the pan, repeat until you’ve used all your eggs and egg whites.
  • Pop the lid back on for 2 minutes and once the eggs start to set, add the drops of hot sauce to the eggs, and sprinkle over the cheddar.
  • Pop the lid back on to finish setting the eggs and melt the cheese.
  • Breakfast is ready when the eggs are cooked to your liking!


  • The hot sauce I used was Cholula.
  • Why not batch cook this recipe and have a portion ready for tomorrow too!

    Is it SH approved to use tins of chopped tomatoes or should we be using our assigned amount of tomatoes and chopping them up? (just wondering if there’s extra sugar or salt or anything in the tins?)

      Tinned chopped or tinned whole tomatoes are fine providing they are 100% tomatoes, so avoid the ones with added herbs, garlic, chillies etc as they may contain ‘extras’. Just look at the labels when you go shopping. Just weigh out the same amount as stated in your plan and for a more saucy sauce you can blend them until they’re smooth and use them in the same way.

    Hi what are you using for the protein on this recipe?

      This is roughly based on one of the C3 frittata recipes so no other protein source is needed as it’s a complete meal. It may have been accidentally tagged as C2 for a short time after we did some updates to the website. Sorry for any confusion.
