  • 200g cherry tomatoes
  • A quarter of a red pepper, deseeded
  • A slug of olive oil
  • Black pepper
  • A small handful of basil, finely chopped
  • 50g parmesan cheese
  • Half a garlic clove
  • 2 British Lion eggs
  • Sourdough to serve


1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half, and chop the red pepper into small pieces and pop in an ovenproof frying pan.
3. Place on a medium heat, and while they are gently cooking - you are just taking the edge off - start prepping the rest of the ingredients.
4. Chop the basil.
5. Grate the cheese.
6. Mince the garlic clove.
7. Take the pan off the heat and stir in oil, black pepper, basil, cheese, garlic.
8. Make two dips in the tomato mix for the eggs.
9. Break the eggs into the dips and place the pan in the oven for 10 minutes. But keep an eye on it, to make sure you get the yolks runny. Remove from oven, sprinkle bit more cheese, pepper and herbs on top. Serve with sourdough.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
