Stir in a little seasoning, then make two gaps in the mix and crack in the eggs. Cover the pan with a lid or a sheet of foil, then cook for 2-3 mins until the eggs are done to your liking.

Yeah this is great, mix up the veg to what you like and it's all good. I throw a chilli in there as well when I'm making it on a hangover. Top recipient top member

Just made this, really tastiey and versatile dish. Too many courgettes for my husbands taste so next time I will replace half with mushrooms and onion. He thought it would make a nice starter.

Good, simple way to use courgettes! Made a tasty lunch with no effort.

Superb, A must do again. I added a small red pepper and a red onion at the same time as the courgette to make it a more substantial evening meal, then served it with pork chops and home made crusty garlic bread. Delicious.

Just had this for breakfast. Yum. Used basic recipe plus mushrooms and sliced red onion

This is a nice easy and tasty dish - I like my eggs a little more set than probably most other people, so by the time they were done to my liking, the courgettes and tomatoes were a little over-cooked! But no less enjoyable for that. I'll just make sure I add the eggs a little earlier in the process next time.

I added some sausages to make it more meat-eater friendly, it tasted great and really easy, will be making this often!
