1. Roughly chop the tomatoes. Chop the spring onions and put togetherwith the chilli and garlic. Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk together with the cream. Season with salt and black pepper.
2. To prepare the olive oil bread: cut the baguette in half lengthways and then in half widthways. Brush the cut side of the bread with olive oil. Heat a heavy based frying pan or griddle and toast the bread cut side down until crisp in the middle and charred at the edges.
3. Melt the butter in a heavy based or non stick frying pan. When foaming fry the spring onion, garlic and chilli for a minute. Add the tomato and fry briskly for another minute. Now add the egg and, keeping a brisk heat, stir briefly until just set.
