Gosh this was delish. We parboiled the potatoes (5 min in boiling water) first, and used diced onion instead of shallots. I liked the oregano - it added a nice touch. Wonderful cheap meal - very hearty and felt relatively low calorie, as well.

Excellent. Fussy kids loved it! I'd cook the eggs a little longer though. Served mine with sausages and beans.

i'm 17 and i decided to make this for my family tonight, the potatoes took ALOT longer then the time mentioned, all together this recipe took about an hour and a half too make, but it was well worth the wait! it was soooooo tasty and warmed us all up on this cold day! will defiantly be making again!!!! although, i think next time i will cook more because, although there was enough, it didn't fill us up completely! oh, and the different tastes go together superbly, we had with baked beans!

We tried this one the other night. Tasty but the potatoes took far longer than the recipe indicates. Certainly not 30 mins. The potatoes were in for almost an hour all told. I think I will be parboiling them for a few minutes first next time. Will be trying this again however as was happy with the final result. Miht also take the tip about bacon and cherry tomatoes next time too as I felt I needed bulking up abit but was reluctant to do that with more potatoes as trying to cut down on carbs!

Easy recipe and very tasty. I tend to soft boil the potatoes as they do take longer otherwise.

I made this for a brunch with some friends who stayed over. I par boiled the potatoes, added mini sausages and cherry tomatoes when I added the mushrooms and seasoned with lots of salt and black pepper (as well as the oregano). I find it really weird that the recipe doesn't call for seasoning with salt & pepper. Served it with baked beans on the side and everyone loved it.

So easy to make and a meal all the family really enjoy, especially served with cold ham.

Delicious, we have this for dinner with either grilled black pudding, bacon or sausage and baked beans (for one of our 5 a day). I part boil the potatoes and use just a teaspoon of oil, the first time I cooked it I used the whole tablesppon of oil and found it too greasy.

We had this tonight as i'm trying to diet, but now and again have the need for comfort foods. So I didn't slip up, used very little oil, seems a far healthier way to enjoy something i'd traditionally avoided on a diet, both me and my partner loved this recipe.

Really tasty. I par boiled the potatoes for 5 minutes before added tomatoes, red onion and mushrooms with some mixed herbs. I will definitely be cooking this again.
