45 mins preparation & cooking

450g (1lb or 4 1/2 cups) waxy new potatoes, scrubbed
4 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
3 tbsp chives, chopped

Mix the eggs with the tomatoes and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix in the chives and parsley.

Heat the oil in a 25cm (10 inch) frying pan (skillet). After a few minutes, when it is very hot, carefully pour in the egg and potato mixture and turn the heat down a little.
