Recipe by hungrykitten

From www.eggsca. The original recipe calls for 2 tablespoons bruschetta mixture, drained, but the computer wouldn't accept that.

What a great breakfast this made with the different flavours and textures, I used a free range egg, thinly sliced double smoked ham, aged parmesan and vine ripened tomatoe and put all on a slice of toasted wholemeal/wholegrain bread, I made one for the DM and one for myself and we both thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you hungrykitten from the DM and I, made for ZAAR Chefs Alphabet Soup Tag Game.
