- Spread bread on both sides with some of the butter. Toast bread on both sides in a preheated frypan until golden, set aside.
- Add remaining butter and garlic to frypan until butter is foaming, add tomatoes, chilli and season to taste, cook over high heat for 5-8 minutes until slightly caramelised and juicy.
- Mound tomato mixture onto each slice of bread, sprinkle with feta and basil leaves and season with pepper. Serve warm.
- A mixture of coloured cherry tomatoes makes a real difference to the presentation of this dish, but it tastes just as delicious with regular cherry tomatoes.

Avoid a "floury" white sauce
At the beginning of a white sauce always cook off the butter and flour over low heat for 1 minute to ensure the finished sauce doesn’t have a “floury” flavour. Remove from the heat before whisking in milk and returning back to the heat to thicken.
