  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the potatoes in a pan of water, bring to the boil, cook for 5 mins, then drain. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Cook the potatoes, mushrooms and garlic for 5-8 mins to soften the mushrooms and brown the edges of the potatoes. Stir in half the thyme and cook for 1 min more.

  2. Spoon the potato mixture into a baking dish and sprinkle with the cheese and the remaining thyme. Make holes in the mixture and break in 4 eggs. Bake in the oven for 12-15 mins until the eggs are set and the cheese has melted.

Running down the fridge for a defrost so it was a question of what staples I had in the available. Hmmm, I googled Potato, mushroom and cheese, and this came up and looked like a good option. Very tasty! Added some crispy bacon pieces and topped with crushed Ritz biscuits. Herbs suggested worked well and the aroma whilst cooking in the halogen was gorgeous. Thanks for posting the recipe... it's shame I can't post a pic of my result.

After years of using this website and being delighted with every recipe I've ever tried, this one has been a major disappointment. After three attempts it's not one I would recommend to my friends.

Yummy, simple, versatile meal. Can easily be made more healthy or indulgent. Did it all in one oven proof casserole dish. Added onion and a drop of Worcester sauce on top!

Very tasty! I stirred in some spare salmon scraps and did it with sweet potatoes as well as a few small boiled ones. Very easy! Quite a bit of washing up though...

I liked this. I read the comments and cooked in the oven for 25 minutes. I added broccoli and bacon and chilli to use bits up in my fridge. Will make again as easy and tasty

Eggs were no way cooked in the time specified + 10 minutes, cook your eggs longer. Dangerous recipe.

Nice and easy, very tasty and has got all the nutrients you need in one dish! Whoever wants to try a more "Mediterranean" version of it can try to replace Cheddar with Parmesan and Sunflower oil with Olive oil; and, as I'm not a big fan on thyme, I spiced it up a bit with some ground pepper and oregano. Loved it!

This was quick and easy, I didn't have any mushrooms so I added sliced Brussel sprouts and sliced onion. Also added some chilli flakes and a veggie oxo cube for flavour topped with cheddar and parmesan cheese.

This was a cheap and easy dish to make, but did take a bit longer than I expected. I added some bacon too, which was a nice addition!

Yes give it an extra ten minutes to ensure the eggs are done.
