Place the potatoes in a saucepan with salted water and bring to the boil. Reduce to simmer and cook until tender.  This will take about 6 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile heat a large frying pan.  Add the oil and butter.  When the butter has melted add in the onion and fry until softened, about 8 minutes.

Add the potatoes, season and cook until golden.  Fold in the spinach and cook until wilted. Toss the tomatoes on top. Remove from the heat and make 4 dips in the potato mixture. 

Crack an egg into each dip. Breakup the cheese and dot it around the eggs. Cover and return to a medium heat.  Cook until the eggs are done to your liking, about 6 minutes.
