  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan, add the leeks, garlic, chilli and a good pinch of seasoning and cook until the leeks have softened, about 6-8 mins.

  2. Once the leeks are nearly done, push them to the side of the pan and fry the eggs in the remaining oil. Cooking over a medium heat to begin with ensures cooked whites and runny-yolk satisfaction.

  3. Toast the bread, then spread each slice with some Greek yogurt, top each with the leeks and squeeze over the lemon. Top with a fried egg, a scattering of sea salt and a few more chilli flakes to serve.

I have half quantities of this for a light lunch - which makes the calories a bit more manageable! At first I thought this was just okay, but it’s really grown on me. The squeeze of lemon really lifts it. I just use ordinary uncut tin loaf but no doubt sourdough would be lovely!
