  1. Heat the lard or oil in a pan and fry the chorizo until it starts to go brown.
  2. Add the bread cubes and turn them in the oil until they are crisp.
  3. Carefully stir in the eggs and add the chilli flakes, if using, and a little salt.
  4. Scramble the eggs until they begin to set and remove from the heat.
  5. Serve immediately.


Use butter instead of oil or lard. Try it with serrano ham instead of chorizo, in which case add a tablespoon paprika to give colour to the eggs.
