Unfortunately due to a stomach bug I haven’t been able to cook again today! I’ve really missed it this week and feel like this weekend may become a cook-a-thon just to satisfy myself…and my recipe list!
One thing worse than not being able to cook much this week is definitely not being able to eat anything today! My favourite meal of the day is definitely breakfast…I often eat it for every meal of the day! I’m sure I’m not the only person who loves a big portion of beans on toast for lunch, an omelette for dinner or a big mug of cereal as a snack (having it in a mug makes it more of a treat I don’t know why!).
So today I was gutted to sleep through breakfast and not feel up to eating anything! Anyway it reminded me that I made the most delicious breakfast at the weekend which was so simple but definitely satisfied every criteria I have for breakfast! Here is my recipe for sweet tomatoes on toast with an egg on top:
1 Slice of good quality wholemeal bread
Extra light Philadelphia
2 or 3 Tomatoes depending on their size (I used 3 smallish ones)
Red Wine Vinegar (Balsamic would work too)
Salt and Black Pepper
Cut the tomatoes in half and place on a grill pan, cut side up. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and put a drop or two of the vinegar on each half. Grill them for about 10 minutes untill soft.
Toast your bread then spread thickly with the Philadelphia and top with the tomatoes, the egg and some black pepper.
So simple and a worthy breakfast/ brunch for a lazy weekend morning. The tomatoes will be sweet and contrast well with the soft cheese!
