Tom, who is married to Ductsin Lance Black with whom he shares a son, Robbie, has created a delicious-looking brunch recipe in partnership with British Lion eggs.

Tom's Mexican Chilaquiles are just what we're after for a shareable brunch plate. (If you haven't heard of the meal before, it's a traditional Mexican breakfast dish).

The recipe features sunny-side-up eggs, creamy feta cheese, crispy red onions and fragrant coriander - and only takes 15 minutes to cook. Follow the recipe below…

Step 1

Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat 1 tsp oil in a medium frying pan, add the garlic and finely chopped chilli and cook until just golden and fragrant, for about 45 seconds. Pour over the chopped tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes to reduce.

Step 2

Pour half the chopped tomatoes into a large 28cm oven-proof dish or frying pan, and gently stir through half the tortilla chips until coated. Sprinkle with half the feta and half the coriander.

Step 3

Pour the remaining tortilla chips into the pan with tomatoes, stir to coat then place in the ovenproof dish on top of the others. Scatter with remaining feta and place under the grill for 3-4 minutes until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are golden and crisp.

Step 4

Meanwhile, place a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and heat the remaining oil, then crack 4 British Lion eggs into the pan. Cook for 3 minutes, or until the white is set, covering with a tight-fitting lid to cook the tops if needed. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Remove the tortilla chips from the grill, nestle the fried eggs among the tortillas, sprinkle with the red onion and coriander and serve with lime wedges.

Cook’s tip!

Make your own corn tortilla chips! Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush both sides of 3 tortillas lightly with olive oil then cut into triangles. Place in a single layer on lined baking trays and bake for 7-8 minutes until golden and crisp.
