It might sound like a strange combination but trust me. It works!!

Ingredients:
About 5 tablespoons of olive oil
200 grams red potatoes, diced with their skins still on
50 grams broccoli broken into small florets
Chopped fresh parsley leaves
Couple cloves of garlic
2 large eggs
Salt & pepper to taste

What to do:
Par-boil the broccoli florets for about 10 minutes or until they just start to soften.

Heat the oil in a large frying pan. About 5 tablespoons should do it…you need enough to give the potatoes a good covering as you fry them. Stir them over a medium heat for about 10 minutes, then mix in the broccoli. Cook for a further 5 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and golden. Next add the parsley, garlic, salt and pepper, then remove from the heat.

Transfer everything into an ovenproof dish. Make a hole in the middle and break the 2 eggs into it.

Pop into the oven and cook at 200C/Gas Mark 6 for about 10 minutes. The whites of the eggs should be cooked through by this time but the yokes still nice and runny.

Tip:
For that extra bit of decadence, add grated cheese to the top of the dish and stick it under the grill for 5 minutes. Mature Cheddar or Goat Cheese would work wonders. This realisation dawned on me about half-way through cooking but, alas, my fridge was completely cheese-less at the time. Gutted!
