We recently got some new chickens and this is the third double yolk egg they have given us! I find with the girls eggs that they are too bulbous once cracked in the pan so I have to flip them over to cook all of the white, I only turn them for a few seconds before flipping them back and serving.
I often cook extra potatoes, either boiled or baked as these were, as they are so handy for leftovers, so, here are last nights baked baby potatoes.
12 cooked baby potatoes, sliced into thick chunks
4-8 eggs depending on appetite
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
A few chives, snipped with scissors
In a large frying pan heat the butter.
Once hot, add the potatoes and cook until golden on both sides.
Move the potatoes to the side of the pan.
Crack the eggs in the pan, season with salt and pepper, smoked paprika and chilli flakes, fry turning if you want.
Spoon potatoes onto your plates, top with the eggs and sprinkle with chives.

I like the idea of cooking extra potatoes to have on hand for future meals!
Hi Cynthiamvoss, with a houseful of boys extra potatoes, pasta and rice are always in the fridge! 🙂 Ros
Yum. I love fried eggs and fried potatoes. So simple and good. Although we usually do our breakfast potatoes as hash browns.

I remember collecting double yolk eggs when our hens first started laying. They were so big that it looked as if a pterodactyl had layed them! 🙂
They are huge! I’ll suggest a pterodactyl has laid the, to the boys!!! 🙂 Ros
