  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Tip the potatoes into a large roasting tin and toss with 1 tbsp of the oil and some seasoning. Bake for 45 mins-1 hr until crisp and golden, tossing them again halfway through.

  3. Fry or poach the eggs. Serve alongside the wedges and beans and garnish with the parsley.
