700g/1lb 9oz large salad potatoes, peeled and halved
175g/6oz smoked bacon, roughly chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
½ red pepper, thinly sliced
6 large free-range eggs
25g flatleaf parsley, roughly chopped
30g/1oz cheddar, grated
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Serves - 4
Parboil the potatoes in lightly salted water for 6–10 minutes, until almost cooked but still firm. Cut them into slices. Preheat your grill to medium–high.
Using a large ovenproof non-stick frying pan, fry the bacon in its own fat, stirring, for 4–5 minutes, or until cooked. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Heat the oil in the same pan. Add the peppers and fry for 4–5 minutes, or until just cooked.
Add the potatoes to the pan, stir gently, then fry for 2–3 minutes, until lightly browned. Return the bacon to the pan and stir gently again.
Crack the eggs into a jug and lightly beat using a fork. Stir in the parsley and season well.
Pour over the potato-and-bacon mixture, then sprinkle the cheese on top. Cook for 5 minutes.
Transfer to the grill and cook for 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Serve in slices, with salad if you like.
