Why is it necessary to say that this recipe is "one that dads will love"? Will mums not like it? Can men not cook it?

Why is it necessary for you to care? Let people say what they want.

It's okay, a bit dry so you're best off adding some baked beans with it. Don't slice your shallots too thinly or they'll burn. 30-35 mins is plenty if you ask me.

Best dinner I've had for months. Add 2 small chopped apples at the start, and a packet of sausages about half way through, and it's perfect for autumn.

I enjoyed making this although it didn't look quite as good as it does in the picture; I found it to be okay.

Very basic, yet O so tasty! Great for a weekend breakfast, lunch, or a simple dinner to rattle up after a busy day at work :D I posted mine up on my blog the other day - Had to leave out the mushrooms as I had none left, but now I do, so I can make it again :D

i loved this dinner. cooked it for my young children who were not too impressed although my 6 yr old did praise how perfect the eggs were lol. after reading comments i put the eggs in at the same time as the mushrooms and the timing worked. i agree the onions can go in later too. i like crispy spuds however did enjoy these. i added 2 cloves of garlic to roast for me. odd combination but i love roasted garlic and for me this worked well. sadly because kids didn't enjoy as much as me i will have this only for my winter brunches instead. highly rate this as quick simple cheap and easy :)

I'd like to try this in the slow cooker (for brunch). Any ideas out there as to adding the eggs? Or would I be better off frying them in a pan when we're ready to eat? Thank you for any and all helpful answers!

We wouldn't recommend doing this one in the slow cooker - as it's all one pan, it'll be a lot easier and give better results in the oven.
