Serves 4

  • 3 kg of spring peas in the pod ;
  • 1 bunch of parsley ;
  • 150 grs of onions ;
  • 1 dl of olive oil ;
  • 100 grs of lard ;
  • 100 grs of sausage (chouriço) ;
  • 4 eggs ;

Pod and wash the pees. Peel the onions and mince them. Slice up the sausage after removing its skin.
Place the olive oil and lard in a pan and put it on the flame. Add the onions, sausage and the bunch of parsley. Let the onions brown.
Add the peas and fry them for a few minutes. Cover with water. Season with salt and pepper and cook after covering the pan.
Take out the bunch of parsley.
Finally, break the eggs and place them one at a time on the peas; the eggs should be cooked together with the peas.
