Poached egg with aromatic tomatoes! If you fancy making a healthy, cheap, nutrional breakfast with a bit of personality then this is for you!


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 onion sliced into half moons
  • 1 slice of your favourite bread
  • Tsp fennel seeds
  • Butter of your choice
  • 1 tbsp oil



Fry the onion and fennel seeds with the oil until nice and soft (should take about 5-10 mins). Put the kettle on to boil.


Add the tomatoes to the onions and cook on a medium heat until the tomato mix becomes thicker.


In the meantime put the boiling water in a pan (leave the water to settle without further heat) and stir the water in a circular motion to create a whirlpool (this will help make the perfect egg shape!). Slowly crack and place the egg into the water.


Put the water on a low heat for 3-4 minutes until the egg is cooked as you like.


When both your egg and tomatoes are done serve up with buttered toast.
