Not French I know [Spain here we come :-)] but here's some grub that's pretty quick to prepare, relatively healthy...haha, reasonably cheap (with the exception of those sun-dried tomatoes - you could substitute something else) and we enjoy.
INGREDIENTS (Serves two)
3 medium-sized potatoes
1/2 bottle (about 80g) sun-dried tomatoes
20g salted butter
4 tbsp grated parmesan
1 tsp dried thyme
salt & pepper
bread and butter and/or salad to serve
HOW TO MAKE IT
Peel & cut the potatoes into small cubes (2cm).
Boil in water until just done.
Drain the sun-dried tomatoes & cut into 1cm strips.
When potatoes done, take a large frying pan and melt butter on top.
When butter melted (not brown) throw in tomatoes and potatoes.
Stir gently and spread the potatoes and tomatoes evenly over the pan then cook for 1 minute.
Add the eggs and cook for further one minute on high heat.
Turn heat down and sprinkle thyme, salt and pepper and cheese.
Put on lid and let simmer for 4 minutes.
If the top is still a bit runny, that's great - leave in pan and take off heat to continue cooking.
Serve with bread and butter and/or salad.
