Easy Eggs & Tomatoes on Toast

I first learned this recipe from a dear friend when we lived in California. This dish has British roots. It’s the very best with tomatoes fresh from the garden, but it’s wonderful even with store bought. I love it because it’s got the protein carb combo so you feel full so much longer.

Easy Eggs & Tomatoes on Toast


6 eggs

6 pieces of toast

3 tomatoes, sliced

6 TBSP butter

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp Italian seasonings

a few shakes of malt vinegar (this really makes the dish!)

6 slices cooked bacon * optional

sliced avocado *optional

Warm up a large frying pan to medium high. (You can do this in 2 batches if you only have a small frying pan) Put 3 TBSP butter in the pan, swirl it around and crack the eggs into the pan, and throw the tomatoes in there as well. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and Italian seasonings. Cook for about 1-2 minutes, then flip everything and do the same on the other side. White should be cooked, but the yolks are best runny.

While it’s cooking, butter the toast (And toast the toast if you haven’t already). Immediately, scoop eggs and tomatoes over toast and shake with malt vinegar. Serve right away. This is also really good with sliced avocado and bacon crumbled on top. We love serving this with our Strawb Peach Mint Fruit Cup. If you’re putting on a brunch, our Apple Spice Bread with Maple Glaze is also a really nice addition to the menu.
