Start by heating a glug of oil in a skillet, enough to coat the bottom of the pan, over a low heat. Add the potatoes and cook for 15 minutes until they're beginning to soften, add a little more oil if needed.
Turn the heat up to medium. Throw in the shallots and sprouts and cook for another 5 minutes before adding the bacon, smoked paprika and a good sprinkling of salt and pepper. Give everything a good mix and continue to cook over a medium heat until the potatoes and sprouts are just tender.
Make some wells in the mixture - either 2 or 4 depending on how many you're serving/how hungry you are! Crack an egg into each well and cook until the whites are set and the yolks are still runny. Serve with a sprinkling of chopped chives and extra black pepper.
