Yum! This went down a treat, I've never thought of adding spring onions to potatoes but it works really really well. I added a carrot as well for more colour and variety. Won't let me rate but a definite 5 stars from me!

Mega easy indeed! I tried this to save my wife cooking tonight. There was a fly annoying me as I got to the stage of frying the spring onions. It landed on the pan of potatoes. I picked up the day,s paper and took aim. I hit the fly but caught the pan of onions which shot across the kitchen and it took some time to gather up the mess off the floor. At that stage I handed over to my wife Brian J

Mega easy! I served with a homemade tartare sauce to add extra flavour.
