  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the vine cherry tomatoes on a baking tray and drizzle with 1 tsp of oil; season. Bake for 10 mins. Mash the avocado with the lemon juice and chilli flakes, if using. Season.
  2. Using an 8cm star cutter, stamp out a star-shape from the bread. Melt the butter and remaining oil in a nonstick frying pan set over a low-medium heat. Add the bread star and border and fry for 1 min, until golden.
  3. Turn the pieces over and crack the egg into the star-shaped hole. Fry for 2-3 mins until the egg is cooked, but the yolk is still soft. Transfer to a plate and top with the star. Serve with the tomatoes and avocado.
