  • 2 tablespoons of Antipasti apricot harissa paste from Woolworths

  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • A splash of water
  • 2 tablespoons of double cream plain yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of Antipasti apricot harissa paste from Woolworths for garnishing
  • Pickled red onions
  • Toasted olive ciabatta bread


  1. Start by heating up a pan with the olive oil over low heat.

  2. Add the Antipasti apricot harissa paste to the hot oil and cook it for about a minute. This step allows the harissa to release its aromatic flavors.

  3. Crack all four eggs into the pan, ensuring they are evenly spaced.

  4. Add a splash of water to the pan. This helps create steam, which will gently cook the eggs without overcooking them.

  5. Cook the eggs to your desired level of doneness. Whether you prefer runny yolks or fully cooked, this dish is incredibly versatile.

  6. Remove the pan from the heat and begin plating your breakfast masterpiece.

  7. Start with a base of double cream plain yogurt or Greek yogurt on the plate.

  8. Add the harissa paste for garnishing, creating a spicy and visually appealing drizzle.

  9. Carefully transfer the cooked eggs onto the plate, allowing the rich sauce from the pan to coat them.

  10. Place the toasted olive ciabatta bread on the side, ready to soak up all those delicious flavors.

  11. Finish by adding the vibrant, pickled red onions to the dish. These add a delightful crunch and tangy contrast.

  12. When you're ready to eat, make sure to mix the yogurt and harissa paste with the sauce. Layer the bread with this flavorful mixture, top with the eggs, and crown it all with the pickled onions. Get ready for a burst of flavors in every bite!

Tips for Perfect Harissa Eggs:

  • To prevent the eggs from burning, always cook them on low heat. This slow and steady approach ensures a creamy texture and avoids any unwanted scorching.

Nutritional Goodness:

This breakfast isn't just delicious; it's also nutritious! You're getting a fantastic protein boost from the eggs, along with healthy fats from the olive oil. Harissa paste adds a punch of antioxidants and spice, making it a true superfood. And don't forget the probiotic benefits from the yogurt. It's a well-rounded meal that will keep you energized throughout the day.

Vegan Twist:

For my vegan friends, you can easily substitute the eggs with tofu. Simply crumble the tofu into the harissa sauce, let it soak up the flavors, and cook until heated through. Enjoy the same mouthwatering dish with a plant-based twist!
