I love tomatoes- as long as they are ripe! Now is the perfect time for using fresh tomatoes in cooking- they just don't get better than they are right now. This is a delicious breakfast, lunch, or light dinner, and comes together very quickly and easily. Sometimes I add a slice of bacon and sometimes I leave it off. Spinach or other tender greens are also good on this.
1 slice sourdough bread, lightly toasted and buttered
1 slice sharp cheddar cheese
1 small ripe tomato, sliced
1 slice crisp bacon (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat a small frying pan and spray with cooking spray. When hot, crack egg into pan, salt and pepper to taste, and cook to desired doneness. Add cheese to top of egg.
2. Place egg on top of buttered toast. Top with bacon (if using) and tomato slices. Salt and pepper tomato slices to taste.
