Choosing the bread

Use a thick, hand-sliced loaf for this recipe. If using pre-sliced bread, soak it for half the time stated in the method.


  1. Heat the grill to high. Grill the bacon for 5-6 mins, then set aside.

  2. Put the cherry tomatoes on a baking tray and grill for 5 mins. Mix with the tomato chutney and set aside.

  3. Fry the mushrooms in ½ tbsp olive oil for 5 mins and set aside.

  4. Beat the egg with the milk in a shallow dish, add the bread and leave to soak for 1 min, turning once.

  5. Fry in the butter over a medium heat for 4 mins, then flip and cook for 4 mins more, until both sides are golden. Top with the tomato mix, bacon and mushrooms.
