Tomato Breakfast Toasts

Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes.

  • Yield: Makes 8 slices


  • 2 none large ripe tomatoes
  • 4 none eggs
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced thyme leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 8 none slices sourdough bread (about 1/2 in. thick)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 8 none slices gruyère or white cheddar cheese


1. Cut tomatoes into 1/8- to 1/4-in.-thick slices and lay on paper towels (to soak up some of their juices). Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, Dijon mustard, salt, thyme, pepper, and dry mustard. Soak each bread slice in egg mixture for about 30 seconds.

3. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Working in batches of 4 slices, cook bread until browned on one side, 1 minute. Turn bread over and top with 1 slice tomato and 1 slice cheese. Reduce heat to low, cover pan, and cook until cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Serve hot.
