2 tsp olive oil
300g button mushrooms
4 free range eggs
1⁄2 cup light thickened cream

Step 1 Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Place tomatoes on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Spray liberally with oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Bake for 10–12 minutes until tender.
Step 2 Meanwhile, heat oil in a small non-stick frying pan over medium-low heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes.
Step 3 While mushrooms are cooking, gently whisk eggs, cream and salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat butter in a medium non-stick heavy-based frying pan over medium heat until foaming. Add eggs and swirl over pan base, cook without stirring for 30 seconds then gently push eggs in pan every 10 seconds using a flat-topped wooden spatula for about 2 minutes or until almost cooked through but still moist (do not over stir). Remove from heat. Serve scrambled eggs with toast, tomatoes and mushrooms. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.
