READY IN: 10mins


  • 1
    plum tomato, thickly sliced
  • 1
    slice thick ciabatta or 1 slice any other rustic bread
  • 2
    tablespoons olive oil
  • 1
    large egg

    small red chili, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 12
    cup snipped chives
  • 12
    teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper


  • Heat a ridged griddle pan.
  • Lightly brush the tomato slices and bread with some olive oil.
  • Cook the tomato slices first, for at least 5 minutes.
  • When they are almost ready, toast the bread in the same pan until well bar-marked.
  • In the meantime, pour a little olive oil into a small frying pan and crack in the egg.
  • Allow it to set for a minute or so and add the garlic and chilli.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes, spooning the hot oil over the egg until cooked to your liking.
  • Place the griddled bread on a plate and quickly spoon the tomatoes on top.
  • Throw the chives into the egg pan and splash in the balsamic vinegar.
  • Season well, then slide the egg on to the tomatoes and drizzle the pan juices on top.
  • Serve immediately, with a good cup of tea!
