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.

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.

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.

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.

Heat the plates.

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

Stage 8 - 3 min.

Spread pesto generously on each slice of toast.

Stage 9 - 3 min.

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.
