Method
  1. Boil a small pan of water.
  2. Place the sliced mushrooms and halved tomato under a hot grill for 5 minutes, turning once half way through.
  3. Crack the egg into boiling water, and simmer for 3–4 minutes – depending on the size of the egg, and how you like your eggs done.
  4. Place the toast on a warmed plate, spoon over mushrooms and tomato and top with the poached egg. Season with black pepper. Top with a little fresh basil to bring out the taste of the tomato.
Try different types of bread as a base – toasted muffins, crumpets, soda or rye bread, or bagels
