This is a really hearty brunch meal which would be equally good as a lunch or dinner – I might even be tempted to add a bit more of a spice kick if I was having it later in the day. I made this using a mini casserole dish, but would work equally well in a non-stick pan, skillet or shallow dish. Feel free to swap out the potatoes for sweet potatoes if you prefer, and the cheese can be left out to make it dairy free. Serve with some crusty bread for dunking to make this a bit more of a substantial meal!

  • 500g [3 CUPS] potatoes, diced into 1-2cm chunks
  • 2 – 4 eggs
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 Handfuls of Spinach 
  • 2 TSP Smoked Paprika 
  • 50g [1/4 CUP] Cheddar, grated
  • 1 Avocado 
  • Salt & pepper
  • Bread (to serve, optional)

Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add the diced onion and potatoes, along with the paprika, salt and pepper. Stir to coat the spices around the potatoes, and let fry for around 15 minutes – stirring every now and then to stop the potato sticking. 
When the potato is golden brown and tender, turn off the heat. Stir in the spinach and let it wilt, then add the cheese and mix.
If you are using mini casserole dishes then now transfer the mixture between them and crack the eggs onto the top. Otherwise, crack the eggs directly onto the top of the mixture in the pan – note that continuing using the same frying pan would only work if it is small enough that the potato mixture is dense and consumes most of the pan. 
Place the casserole dish or pan under a hot grill or in the oven for 5 – 10 minutes until the egg is cooked. Slice the avocado, and serve alongside!

    If it serves 2, is the nutritional information also for both servings? So, do I cut the carbs in half if serving 1 person 2X?
