We parboiled the potatoes first too. Great recipe. Easy, fairly healthy and filling. Will definitely be doing again!

I can even cook this on the boat, where I wouldn't ever use a chip pan.

Cleaning up was really easy- cooking was simple and made it possible to multi-task. Great for busy mornings when you can't stand watch over a stove. The results were good and filling, if not spectacular.

As many have said, the timings on this recipe aren't quite right - add another ten minutes for the chips and five minutes for the eggs. But overall it's an unbelievably simple, extremely tasty and low fat meal. I'm watching what I eat at the minute and I still managed to shed a load of weight after eating it. In fact, I'm not sure why this isn't the standard way of cooking egg & chips!

Followed the recipe and it was very good. Great smells through the house with the Oregano. We had this for breakfast as a cheat on Fathers day, but it is much better than an all English breakfast.

Fantastic recipe. Realy tasty and so quick and easy. I used a large tray to allow plenty of room for the potatoes to cook in the time stated. Missed out the shallots though, really didn't fancy them.

This is a lovely simple meal. I, too, suggest par-boiling potatoes else they take ages! The best thing about this meal though is that served with baked beans and cherry tomatoes it counts as a 'free' meal on the slimming world plan.

Very yummy, a great breakfast. I shouldn't've cut the onions so big though, they weren't very nice.

I think I cooked the potatoes for about 40 minutes. Also needs just a touch of seasoning after you have added the eggs.

Although i added a little more mushrooms and also some cherry tomoates found this recipe quite bland. Don't think i will be making this again.
