  1. Heat the butter in a frying pan and add the spring onions. Cook for a 1-2 mins to soften then stir in the beaten eggs with a little seasoning and cook, stirring, for about 2 mins to scramble. Once cooked to your liking, remove from the pan and spoon onto the toast.
  2. Wipe out the pan and add the oil. Fry the tomatoes for 2 mins until hot and a little browned. Spoon the tomatoes over the scrambled eggs, drizzle with the chilli sauce and scatter over the cress.

Serve with: Peach bellini

Purée 1 tinned peach half with 1 tbsp of tinned peach juice from the tin with a stick blender. If you want a really smooth purée then pass the mixture through a sieve. Pour into a champagne flute and top up with chilled prosecco.
