2 people made this

Salt and black pepper
Method Prep:10min › Cook:9min › Ready in:19min
Heat the oven to 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6). Lightly butter four small ramekin dishes and divide the chopped tomatoes and herbs between them. In a bowl, mix the mustard, Worcestershire sauce and crème fraîche. Add salt and pepper to taste and set aside.
Break an egg into each dish on top of the tomato-herb mixture and transfer the dishes to a roasting tin half filled with hot water.
Bake for 4-5 minutes or until the whites have begun to set. Spoon over the mustard and cream mixture and return them to the oven for a further 3-4 minutes. Serve at once with thick slices of wholegrain toast.
