I found this recipe very bland even though I used loads of paprika. It is very quick and easy and I would try it again if anyone suggested any other spices or ingredients that would make it more interesting. I used courgettes red peppers and mushrooms as I like a few vegetables in terms of colour and taste Read More

This was soooo delicious! Left out the onions reduced recipe for just me and hubby by using 1 can tomatoes 4 eggs and 1/2 large green pepper. Also used 1/2 hot Hungarian paprika and 1/2 sweet gave it a great twist! To reduce cooking time simmered at high temperature to remove tomato juice. Lastly melted cheddar on top. Soooooooooo good! Don't miss the meat at all! Read More

This is really tasty and easy to make. I used smoked paprika which I thought added a lot of the flavor. Read More

Spicy! I wasn't sure which paprika to use so I used Hugarian paprika and mixed it with sweet paprika like another reviewer recommended. Wowee! The Hungarian paprika gave it quite a kick. It was too hot for my husband to eat! I loved the flavors in this recipe and thought it was different and delicious but next time I'll definitely stay away from the hot paprika! Read More
