Step by step recipe

Stage 1
5 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #1 Break 3 eggs into a bowl, salt and pepper, then beat with a fork or whisk, like for an omelette.

Set aside.
Stage 2
5 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #2 Remove the stalk end of 2 tomatoes and cut into thick slices.
Stage 3
5 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #3 Trim the crusts off 6 slices bread. Here I have cut out circles with a cutter. This is more attractive, but not essential.
Stage 4
5 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #4 Butter each slice on both sides.

Set aside.
Stage 5
10 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #5 Pour 2 tablespoons Herb olive oil into a frying pan on medium heat. Cook the sliced tomatoes on both sides.

When cooked, pull off and discard the skin.

Set aside.
Stage 6
5 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #6 Using the same frying pan, cook the eggs, mixing them round gently with a fork, to make a small omelette.

Set aside.
Stage 7
5 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #7 Heat the plates.

Still using the same pan, fry the bread until browned on both sides.
Stage 8
3 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #8 Spread pesto generously on each slice of toast.
Stage 9
3 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #9 Then add a layer of omelette (again, I have cut this out to make it more attractive).
Stage 10
3 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #10 Arrange the tomatoes on top and garnish with a basil leaf. Finish with a trickle of olive oil.

Serve immediately.

Remarks

If you don't have anyherb olive oil, use ordinary olive oil and add a few herbs if you can (bayleaf, thyme, etc.), discarding these at the same time as the tomato skins.
