As others have said, either parboil or allow more time for the pots to cook and go brown, an extra 5-8 should do. But this is a great recipe, healthy but really tasty, and a really good way to cook eggs! We paired a lovely slice of home cooked ham: delicious.

Fab recipe very tasty although I did add some oak smoked bacon and tomatoes. So not so very healthy but very tasty.

Made this for my Husband and our little boy, both really liked it except they said eggs were too rubbery. Maybe I cooked them for too long? But will make again with some herbs as they said it lacked in flavour but as nice.

Really should have par-boiled those potatoes. Can't say I particularly enjoyed this one unfortunately - sure it could be made better with a few small changes though, some good ones in the comments.

Looks basic but so delicious. I steamed the potatoes beforehand and added some bacon. Actually nicer than the greaser alternatives, went down a treat and would definitely make again.

This was fantastic comfort food and so much less greasy than our staple fry up. Beans were the perfect accompaniment. Perfect for an easy supper.

I've had this but fried. doing it oven baked is the best option because it is tastier and i loved the eggs! it took a little longer than i expected but my oven has a bust door so thats ok. i loved fried but adored oven baked. i'll definitely making this again soon!:-)

Good but keep an eye on the eggs because they quickly turn to rubber.

This is a great treat if you are watching the calories and fat. Slimming World recipe I believe.

I love it. A deceptively low-fat treat.

I agree with others when they say the potatoes need longer, but other than that this dish always turns out great for me. I've made it quite a few times now! It's great when you can't be bothered to cook because you can just bung it all in a tray and leave the oven to do the work.

I made this for breakfast with friends and they raved about it! It took all the stress out of a fry up and I still managed to lose weight that weekend! A triumph by all accounts!
Excellent recipe and will be repeated.

(I boiled the potatoes btw for about 5-10 mins until they had just started to soften)
