  1. Having a very dense moment here… “”add slightly beaten egg slowly so not the cause the egg to scramble”” what does this mean? Can’t wait to make this.

    1. Hi Mary, no problem! All it is, when you add the egg, the contents of the pan i.e potatoes, will still be very hot, so add the egg bit by bit whilst stirring otherwise the egg will cook immediately and you will end up with scrambled egg. I would say ‘drizzle’ the beaten egg whilst stirring until all the egg is used up.
      I hope this helps, and yes, please do make it soon. I love to have this with some nice gravy poured over it!

      Happy cooking, from one Mary to another!
