Kick start your day with a good breakfast

English Breakfast. Improved

on August 22, 2013

The Brits and the Aussies love a good “fry-up:” eggs, bacon, baked beans, fried bread, grilled to-mah-to.

It's August! We're tripping over succulent tomatoes. Use 'em!

With to-may-toes at their peak right now, let’s fiddle this “fry-up” a bit to lower the body count.

Cut a thick slice from the center of a ripe tomato. Grill on both sides in olive oil. Top with a poached egg. Season to taste with salt, pepper, fresh basil. Serve with lightly buttered whole grain toast.

Prep/cooking time: 7 minutes

Pots and pans* to wash: 3: frying pan, saucepan, small cup for pouring raw egg into boiling water

*this doesn’t count the plate, utensils, knife and cutting board.
