CIRIO is urging young cooks to get into the kitchen and let mum have a relaxing lie-in on Mother’s Day, which is on Sunday. Huevos Rancheros offers a healthy alternative to the traditional British fry-up, so mum will be wowed by a delicious breakfast with a difference.



1 tbsp rapeseed oil
½ onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
½ green pepper, finely chopped
½ red pepper, finely chopped
½ smallred chilli, chopped
½ courgette, sliced
Salt and pepperto taste
75ml Cirio tomato passata
Knob of butter
4 eggs (2 per person)



To make the salsa, heat the rapeseed oil, add the chopped onion and stir for two minutes then add the chopped chilli, garlic, red and green peppers and courgette and stir for a further four minutes until the ingredients have softened. Then pour in the Cirio passata and stir to warm through.

Once warm, pour out ¾ of the salsa from the pan into a heatproof bowl and set aside.

This will be used for the next three servings.

With the remaining warm salsa in the pan, use a wooden spoon to make a hole in the middles of the salsa. Place a knob of butter in the clear area in the middle of the pan, then break two eggs into this space. Place the lid on to the pan and cook for three to four minutes until the eggs have cooked into the salsa and the whites have firmed up.

Then carefully slide the eggs and salsa onto a warmed plate and keep warm as you repeat the process three more times to make four servings in total. To serve, add a sprinkling of chopped coriander leaves to each plate, add a dollop of refried beans and sour cream, and for some extra bite serve up with chopped jalapenos to taste.

Eat with warm tortillas for the ultimate hearty, satisfying brunch. Visit for more recipe ideas.
