Today's scrumptious brunch - scaled back for two. Quick and easy to make and a classic combination of ingredients that are always a winner. Wonderfully flavoursome, but - obviously - for this to be so, you MUST use the best tomatoes you can find and NOT supermarket tomatoes. I used ciabatta rolls, a favourite of mine, and added a dollop of Greek yoghurt (others may prefer mayonnaise) to the tomato filling. Next time, I'm thinking I may add a couple of bacon rashers. Ah, but that is rendering this heathy low fat recipe very much less healthy, and that would be a pity. Maybe, just sometimes? Thanks for sharing this recipe, Lainey! Made for the market game.
