Sweet chilli mushrooms on toast with poached egg and parsley

I struggled a little with how to adapt my favourite mushrooms on toast for Slimming World, because there is nothing like mushrooms on toast cooked in lashings of butter and garlic, but I feel like I've found an excellent compromise here, the sweet chilli sauce is low syn (generally about 1.5 syns per level tbsp), and the poached egg really just tops it off beautifully.  

Slow-cooker bbq beef brisket

  This recipe is adapted from a Tom Kerridge recipe for BBQ beef brisket, to make it Slimming World friendly.

Although these look naughty, they really aren't anywhere near as bad as a real doughnut, and are a great way ...
