Spicy fried eggs
A nice spicy dish with Italian influences are highlighted in this eay meal.

2 ripe plum tomatoes, sliced thickly

Olive oil, for cooking

4 slices ciabatta or other rustic-type bread

4 large eggs

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 red chilli, thinly sliced into rings

1 tbsp fresh chives, chopped

½ tsp balsamic vinegar

Salt and freshly-ground black pepper

Brush or drizzle the tomatoes with some olive oil and cook in a preheated griddle pan for 5 minutes until they have taken on griddle markings.

Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

Slice the bread and drizzle some olive oil over them then toast lightly in the griddle pan.

In a non-stick frying pan, heat a little olive oil and crack in the eggs.

Dot over with the garlic and chilli and cook for a couple minutes.

Use a spoon to scoop the cooking oil over the eggs until they are cooked.

Place the toasted griddled bread on warmed plates and arrange the griddled tomatoes on top.

Scatter the chives into the egg pan and drizzle over the balsamic vinegar.

Season generously with salt and pepper then slide the eggs on to the tomatoes and drizzle over any pan juices.

Serve with a green salad if you like.
