Wake up your taste buds with this fiery alternative to the sausage sandwich – my perfect food for the morning after the night before. The quality of the bread will really make all the difference here; you want something with a good chewy crust and character. If you don’t find sourdough, then halve and toast some ciabatta or baguette instead.

Chorizo is a piquant Spanish sausage that is spiced with paprika and garlic, with a delicious smokiness. There are two types: cooking chorizo, which is soft like a regular sausage, and cured chorizo, which is firm and dry and eaten uncooked, like a salami. Either type will work in this recipe, but choose the cooking chorizo if you have an option.
