    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
