We thoroughly enjoyed this for breakfast today. I had a bunch of silverbeet (Swiss chard) on hand instead of baby spinach, so chopped it finely and saut?ed it with 1/2 of a finely chopped onion. I piled this mixture on the toast and topped it with two eggs for each person, oyster sauce and sliced shallot. The oyster sauce adds a wonderful flavour dimension, and next time I'll be sure to have some chillies on hand. Thanks for posting.
