'Why sometimes I have believed as many as 6 impossible things before breakfast'
~Alice in Wonderland
SO, let's catch up a bit. I've been MIA for nearly a year! Not much has changed, the kids are older, one is a full blown vegetarian, one is trying (& seemingly failing) to be a pescatarian & one is all meat, all the time. Me? I'm eating meat-just trying to be healthy & taking things in moderation. Although the 10 extra pounds on me seem to prove otherwise. Work is very busy lately, so I'm trying to keep up with that & not lose my mind. School is out for summer, so any structure we did have is out the window. But I'm hoping to get back to blogging & creating delicious food!
So in that vein, this was today's breakfast.
Tennessee tomatoes are in! I look forward to them every year-they are so juicy & sweet. I put them with everything, so breakfast of course can't be left out. This reminds me of eggs benedict in a fresh, summery way.
Starting with a base of crunchy, warm toast (mine's a hamburger bun bottom), I added a thick slice of fresh mozzarella to start to melt just slightly. Then a thick slice of that delicious tomato, A generous spoonful of pesto (I use Costco or you can make your own) and a gently fried egg on top.
A sprinkle of sea salt & breakfast is served!
The contrast of textures & temperatures is amazing. The hot crispy toast with cold cheese & pesto & the warm, runny yolk-this is a winner! I personally think this dish is as pretty as it is tasty. The wow factor is huge, but it couldn't be easier to whip up.
