• 6 rashers Italian smoked pancetta
  • 3 tbsp finely chopped fresh chives
  • 4 large free-range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 300 g white farmhouse bread, thickly sliced, slices cut in half
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 300 g cherry tomatoes on the vine


  1. 1

    Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat, and dry fry the pancetta for 2-3 minutes, until crisp and golden. Crumble 2 of the rashers and set the rest aside.

  2. 2

    Stir 2 tablespoons of the chives into the beaten eggs along with the crumbled pancetta. Dip the bread slices into the egg mixture, turning to coat well.

  3. 3

    Heat half of the oil in the pan and cook half of the eggy bread for 2 minutes on each side, until lightly golden. Keep warm, and repeat with the remaining oil and bread.

  4. 4

    Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium and grill the tomatoes on a baking sheet for 5-10 minutes.

  5. 5

    Serve the eggy bread topped with the grilled tomatoes and crisp pancetta rashers. Garnish with the remaining chives.
