  • Eggs 5

  • Medium onions 2

  • Oil 2 teaspoon to shallow fry

  • Spicy chicken sausages 2

  • Green capsicum seeded and cut into strips 1

  • Sweet red chilli sauce 1 tablespoon

  • Salt to taste

  • Vinegar 1 teaspoon

  • Fresh breadcrumbs 1 1/2 cups

  • Black peppercorns crushed to taste

  • Iceberg lettuce leaves 4-5


Step 1

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a non-stick pan, add onions and saute well.

Transfer sausage mixture into a bowl and cool down to room temperature.

Step 6

Break 1 egg into a bowl. When the water in the pan comes to a boil, add salt and vinegar. Whisk the boiling water slightly so that it moves in circular fashion. Slide the egg immediately into it.

Step 7

Let it poach for 3-4 minutes. Gently remove the egg from the water with a slotted spoon and keep on a plate to cool. Remember not to cook the egg fully because the yolk should remain a little runny. Poach 3 more eggs similarly. Chill the eggs in the refrigerator.

Tear lettuce leaves and place on a serving dish. Put some of the cooked sausage mixture on it, place the poached fried eggs on it and top with remaining sausage mixture.
