  • 700g Maris Piper potatoes, cut into medium chunks
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 rashers streaky bacon, cut into bite-sized pieces



    Bacon is pork that has been cured one of two ways: dry or wet. It can be bought as both rashers…

  • 40g unsalted butter
  • ½ tbsp jerk seasoning
  • 200g prepared pineapple chunks



    With its tuft of spiky, dusty green leaves and cross-hatched, golden orange skin, the pineapple…

  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ small pack coriander, torn
  • ½ red chilli, thinly sliced


  1. Bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the potatoes and boil for 7 mins, then drain and leave to steam-dry for 5 mins. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and fry the bacon for 5 mins until crispy.

  2. Add the butter to the pan along with the potatoes and seasoning, and fry over a medium heat, turning occasionally, for 12 mins. Nestle the pineapple chunks in the pan and cook for a further 3 mins.

  3. Crack the eggs over the potatoes, cover the pan with a lid or large plate and cook for 5-6 mins over a medium-low heat until the whites are just set and the yolks are still runny. Finish with the coriander and a sprinkle of chilli.

Delicious! We have made this numerous times and it's so good! P.S. a bit of smoked bacon is a great addition to the dish if you're a meat eater :)

This was delicious! A quick and simple dinner but satisfying and with exciting flavours. I used new potatoes and back bacon because I had some of both that needed using but other than that followed the recipe to the letter and it was spot on. Will definitely be making this again.

Really tasty, not sure why someone complained about egg clumping together. With a proper lid for your frying pan the eggs poach perfectly in about 3-4 minutes. Amazing when you break the runny yolk over potatoes.

This has great flavours but is maybe a little heavy on the potato. Also just cracking the egg over the mix caused it to all clump together, so I think next time I'd poach the eggs separately.

It wasn't really my cup of tea. I chose it as it was a cheap recipe. Maybe others will like it
