    I love this dish and make it weekly at this time of the year. We usually have it with hot and spicy chicken wings or a lovely pork chop.

    I have also sprinkled chopped chives on top for the last few seconds of cooking, yummy.

    Thanks Elle for your lovely recipes x

    Chopped chives towards the end sounds really good.

    Sadly I overcooked ours today so the potatoes went a bit mushy. Still very tasty though! We had it with a poached egg on top which is my favourite as a lunch.

    No problem with the recipes – we’re always looking for more to test, adapt or try though… so if you have any requests do let us know.

    This seems a really easy recipe which I will try

    It really is easy, Sue… and one that I make regularly. I don’t bother peeling the potatoes anymore… just give them a good scrub instead. My favourite is to serve them in a bowl with a poached egg on top – lovely!

    Enjoy! xx

    Thanks Elle
    Delicious with just the basic recipe. I cooked with pan fried iberico pork chops.
