Italian toast

Step by step recipe:

  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.

    Remove the stalk end of 2 tomatoes and cut into thick slices.

    Trim the crusts off 6 slices bread. Here I have cut out circles with a cutter. This is more attractive, but not essential.
  4. 5 min.Italian toast : Photo of step #4
    Butter each slice on both sides.

    Set aside.
  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.

    Using the same frying pan, cook the eggs, mixing them round gently with a fork, to make a small omelette.

    Set aside.

    Heat the plates.

    Still using the same pan, fry the bread until browned on both sides.

    Spread pesto generously on each slice of toast.
  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).

    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.
