Step by step recipe

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

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

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

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

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

Serve immediately.
3 min.

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.
