Method

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Spread the baguette slices out on a large baking tray (or 2 smaller trays) and drizzle with ½ tbsp of the oil. Bake for 7-8 mins until crisp and lightly golden.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the tomatoes with another ½ tbsp oil, most of the parsley and the crushed chillies, if using. Set aside.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a pan over a medium heat and add the eggs. Leave for about 30 secs so the eggs just start to set, then stir gently for 1-2 mins until scrambled and just cooked through. Add the grated cheese and stir to melt through.
  4. Spoon some of the cheesy scrambled eggs onto each toasted baguette slice and top with some of the tomatoes. Season with black pepper and scatter over the reserved parsley (and extra chillies, if you like) to serve.

Tip: This recipe is easy to adapt, add more chilli if you like it spicy or leave it out completely for kids. To make more substantial, you could top with some cooked bacon or chorizo. For vegetarians, swap the Parmesan for a vegetarian hard cheese.
