Such an easy dish to customize I added leek and red kidney beans and it worked a treat. I also chucked in some lettuce at the end to give it some extra greenery. Lovely.

I did half and half tinned and fresh tomatoes, a bit of cornflour and water to help thicken and added red pepper, sliced almonds and green beans that needed using up. Boiled sauce for twice as long as recommended, started eggs on hob and the finished in oven (160) for 5 mins. A really delicious meal, will have again.

I have this for breakfast when I'm off carbs. Used half a pack of cherry and 2 regular tomatoes with 2 eggs for one serving, also left out the sugar-delicious :)

This was a great meal to start the week off. I used 2 x tinned tomatoes (although this left the dish a little runny) and basil instead of coriander. I added halved cherry tomatoes, red peppers, black olives, mushrooms and green beans to bulk it out a bit. I cooked it on the hob but after adding the eggs I transferred the ingedients into an oven proof dish and baked in the oven for 20 minutes until the eggs were cooked. I served with potato wedges. It was delicious and very much recommended. :-)

Very yummy recipe. I did find it a tiny bit lacking though, so added courgette, chorizo, red peppers and some paprika and that turned out great for me

I just made this, I'm not a big egg fan but even I enjoyed it. Very yummy and quick but if you don't like super runny eggs cook it for a bit longer. Very nice though, got some leftover in the fridge for tomorrow. :)

Yum! That was absolutely delish :)
Its best when made only with fresh veggies, and leaving the tin ingredients out.

Had it for breakfast on a lazy Sunday, absolutely lovely. Hopefully will get the chance to scale it up one day

Yummmmm! I made enough for 2 servings meaning to take the second for lunch. Succumbed to the cravings of my tongue and finished most of it for dinner.

Definitely recommended.

Love this dish, served with fish and veg beautiful. Also creates a lovely thick spicy tomato soup if blended down.

This was lovely with a bit of bread for Dinner. I added a little pancetta that was needing to be used too. Would definitely make again!

This was gorgeous. I used basil, rosemary and pesto as I'm not a big coriander fan. Delicious with crusty bread and salad.

I was making this for supper so wanted to bulk it out a bit so added red peppers and chorizo and used ordinary tinned tomatoes instead of cherry. The eggs took far longer to cook than stated though and in the end I ended up bunging the whole lot under the grill. Would do again, but would put the pot in the oven once I added the eggs.

So easy and so delicious. I used normal tinned whole tomatoes and rosemary instead fo coriander, because that is what I had. A new family favourite.
