"I love this recipe! I'm looking at the pic of it & I can almost smell the aroma, feel its warmth & taste the goodness. It's plain & simple comfort food. "Chorizo on Horseback" is a breakfast or sandwich meal in the Azores. Found @ portuguesedinerdotcom/ (aka Tia Maria's Blog for the Portuguese Foodie). Maria Dias & her daughter (Lisa) are co-authors of TASTE PORTUGAL, 101 EASY PORTUGUESE RECIPES (Vol 1). Maria says it's delicious, her husband's favorite breakfast/sandwich & the "perfect easy dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner"! Times were not given, so were estimated by me. ENJOY!"
