Poached Egg on Parmesan Tomato Toast is a delightful breakfast option. Runny egg yolk infuses with the tomatoes and herbs and is beautifully balanced by a crusty parmesan topping - making for an irresistibly perfect breakfast bite.
- 4 eggs
- 2 slices bread round rustic multigrain or sourdough
- 1 tomato chopped
- 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil extra virgin
- 4 tablespoons parmesan cheese of shredded
- 2 tablespoon white vinegar
- 4 cups of water
- Salt and pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds Toasted ground
Dice tomatoes into small cubes and place it in a small bowl;
Chop parsley and add to tomatoes;
Add 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper and mix together, set aside;
In the meantime bring water to boil;
Crack each egg individually into a small bowl and slowly pour it into the pot with boiling water with vinegar;
Once all eggs are in the pot set a timer for 3 minutes;
While the eggs are in the pot, assemble toasts;
Cut the bread slices in half;
Place a spoonful of tomatoes onto the bread;
Top each one with a tablespoon of parmesan cheese and toast until the cheese is melted and a little crispy - approximately 4 min;
Make sure to take out eggs in the same order you put them in;
Place the eggs on the paper towel to remove excess water;
Once the toasts are ready, place the poached egg on top, sprinkle with olive oil, salt, pepper, and toasted ground sesame seeds and serve immediately.
I usually have at home toasted grinned sesame seeds. I just put sesame seeds on a non stick pan and toast until golden brown. Once toasted I grind them in a coffee grinder and use them as an extra spice for many dishes. It's super delicious.
I used calories count as one serving to be one piece of toast with one egg. It is so good that one person may actually eat two of them.
