Soo good, especially after a workout. Added tomatoes and garlic, served it on top of sautéed spinach, and also drizzled with Greek yoghurt. Nom nom.

Very healthy, but feels like a naughty treat. Try adding small slices of bacon or ham for the final 10 mins.

Delicious! Made this for my boyfriend and he loved it. We added some chorizo with the potatoes and shallots at the start which gave it a lovely flavour.

Delicious! Followed the comments above, par boiled the spuds, swapped mushrooms for cherry tomatoes and served with baked beans. It was the tastiest meal I've had in ages. This will be a regular in our household now!

I par-boiled the potatoes first - to cut down on the cooking time. However, it still took about 1/2 an hour for the potatoes to crisp up. I think perhaps they weren't the 'right' potatoes for doing in the oven. I'd just got a bag of 'white' potatoes from the supermarket. Back to the recipe! We were very impressed with this dish and will do it again soon. We added sone halved cherry tomatoes and these were a delicious addition to the dish.

Really enjoyed this, our first recipe tried in our healthy eating phase. We added bacon lardons (Lean) and some low fat chipolatas cut up, delicious : )
