Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #1
Break 9 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 6 tomatoes and cut into thick slices.

Stage 3 - 5 min.
Italian toast : Photo of step #3
Trim the crusts off 18 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 6 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.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
