    To prepare the Portuguese chourico à bras recipe, remove skin from chourico and cut it into small bits.

    Meanwhile, cut the potatoes into matchsticks and the onion into fine rings.

    Fry the potatoes in a pan and set them to one side, drying them on kitchen paper.

    At the same time, in a deep pan, cook the onions and garlic in olive oil until golden, then add the pieces of chourico, and cook for a few minutes, until it soaks up the oil and the chourico is cooked.

    At this stage, add the potatoes and stir whilst adding the lightly beaten eggs with salt and pepper.

    Stir for a few minutes, turning off the heat before the eggs solidify and become an omelette!

    The chourico à bras has to be served hot, add some parsley and sprinkle with olive oil.
