Simple and delicious. (Followed tip to keep potatoes in oven for 30 mins before adding eggs)

Lovely recipe which I have made a number of times. Next time, think will leave the potatoes in for at least 30 mins before adding the eggs, as some of the wedges weren't quite soft. I cut each baking potato in half, then each half potato into eight wedges. Yummy with the smoked paprika, I hadn't tried that before and it really makes a difference!

Quick and easy no fuss meal!
I had to leave the potatoes in for slightly longer than stated though as they were not quite cooked - though I think this could have been my oven!

Just had this for dinner. 4 clean plates. A new family favourite (especially as we keep hens)

Had to cook a coupl of minutes longer as the eggs were too lightly cooked for me (also have a 'slow' cooker) but fab with the pepper added

I've made this several times now and it's absolutely lovely! really nice filling but quick lunch or dinner. I also added red peppers for some extra veggies.

This has become a regular on our family dinner table, as even my 3yr old (who doesn't like chips) loves it. It is so easy and tastes fab!
