  • Breakfast Bruschetta

Ingredients

  • 750g cherry tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp cold pressed rapeseed oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 oval rustic loaf, cut into 4 slices lengthways
  • 300g unsmoked bacon
  • 4 medium eggs, poached
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley

How to make it

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C, gas mark 6.
  2. Place the tomatoes on a large baking tray and toss in 1 tbsp oil and balsamic vinegar. Season and bake for 20 minutes until soft.
  3. Meanwhile brush the bread with the remaining oil, place on a baking tray and add to the oven for the last 10-12 minutes of cooking.
  4. Place the bacon under a pre-heated grill for 7-8 minutes then cut into thick slices. Mix with the tomatoes and use to top the toasted bread.
  5. Serve topped with a poached egg and sprinkle with the parsley.

Add chopped garlic to the bread for extra flavour at brunch. Any remaining bread can be made into breadcrumbs and frozen for use at a later date.
