4. Return to the oven for 15 minutes.

5. Make 4 deep depressions in the flan, using the back of a tablespoon and break an egg into each.

6. Lay the anchovy fillets across the eggs and sprinkle with pepper.

7. Return to the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until the eggs are lightly set.

8. Garnish with parsley and serve with tomato halves.
