I'm a bit of a dullard in the kitchen but even I managed to knock this up without too many issues (over did the eggs a bit but wasn't catastrophic). Perfect way to start a Sunday after a nice lie in!

To make this easier for a breakfast, if you have an oven timer, set it to come on to get the oven up to heat before you get up. Save pre-cooked potato and use that (or cook more than needed and keep for the treat!) I used to cook something like this years ago, have not tried this, so my tips come from previous experience.

This is yummy. I added bacon and parboiled potatoes first. Yum yum very filling - ideal for Brunch

I made this for my husband and son. The potatoes really do need par boiling but otherwise it was perfect with baked beans on the side. A great Friday night family meal, but took nearly an hour due to the potatoes. We've learnt for next time!

I made this meal for myself and two teenage daughters. It was great. I didn't add the bacon which I was nearly going to but decided to stick to low-fat option. Anyway it was delish. I also par-boiled the potatoes which worked well. I thought the quantity was OK for 3 but if my husband had been home we would have felt short-changed so don't skimp on quantities if you have a healthy appetite. I added a dash of worcester sauce. I will definitely cook this again very soon.

Hurrah! Fantastic, egg and chips I can eat on weight watchers! We have even added low fat sausages cut into chunks to this and it's still very low fat and healthy.

Brilliant! This was simple and really tasty, the italian herbs really added to the flavour, not something i'd of thought of putting on egg and chips. I cut the potatoes nice and small and found that the cooking time was fine. Needed about 5/6 minutes for the eggs though. As it's all done in the one tray, washing up was a breeze! Genius :)

I added cherry tomatoes - a great all-in-one meal.

My husband loved this! So few ingredients required makes it very easy! A great hang over cure without the fat, worth a try. Will try adding some lean bacon next time we make it which i'm sure will be soon!

This was great. I parboiled the potatoes first and also added some cherry tomatoes at the same time as the mushrooms. I served it on some spinach leaves as well which went well with the eggs.

A simple supper that the whole family really enjoyed. I added some chopped extra lean bacon to bulk it up a bit for my hungry teenagers. A cheap and cheerful dinner.

Love it! And its the girlfriends favorite and gets the thumbs up from the weight watchers diet. Always cook chips for a bit longer to crisp up but that may just be my oven.

My husband loved this because I rarely cook fry ups anymore and very tasty too. I loved it even more because there was no grease to clean up after. I will definately make it again not often because of the eggs, but now and again it is o.k. more healthy than the ordinary fry ups. I parboiled the potatoes for three minutes and cooked o.k. after 15 minutes.

I tried this recipe one evening for myself and my husband, the potatoes took a little longer than the recipe stated but other than that, this was simple and very tasty.
