For the Chips

  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil

For the Eggs

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon oil or butter


Make the Chips

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C
  • Scrub the potatoes, and remove any blemishes, but do not peel
  • Slice into wedge shapes of roughly the same size
  • Place in a baking tray
  • Dribble the oil as evenly as you can over the potatoes
  • With a table spoon or large slotted spoon turn the wedges in the oil until they have an even coating
  • Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until brown and cooked through, turning once after 15 minutes

Make the Eggs

  • Once they are cooked, turn the oven down to about 100 degrees C and cook the eggs
  • In a large frying pan (ideally one that has a lid) heat the oil
  • Break in an egg and with a fish slice, gather the whites toward the egg yolk as it splays out
  • Break in the next egg and repeat
  • If the egg whites of two eggs join up, separate them with the end of the fish slice
  • Only put in as many eggs at a time as will comfortable fit together
  • Cover the eggs with a lid (or large plate)
  • Cook for about 1 and half minutes until the whites are all cooked
  • Scoop up gently with a fish slice and put on a plate. Keep warm while cooking the other eggs in the cooling oven
  • Serve immediately with the potato wedges
