Cook time: 1 hour 15 mins.

Total time: 1 hour 25 mins.

Serves: 2.



  • ½ lb roma tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 5-6 basil leaves
  • 2 eggs
  • 3-4 oz mozzarella
  • 4 pieces of bread
  • olive oil for brushing


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚.
  2. Slice roma tomatoes in half and toss with olive oil and salt. Place on a covered baking tray and roast for 40-50 minutes. Tomatoes should be soft and beginning to brown.
  3. In a food processor, add clove of garlic and pulse until minced. Add in roasted tomatoes and basil. Pulse until mixture is spreadable.
  4. In a skillet, cook eggs. For a sandwich a fried egg with the yolk broken is preferable but scrambled would work just as well (or for an even messier sandwich, over-easy.)
  5. Lightly brush olive oil on outside parts of bread and assemble sandwich with cheese, spread, and egg (Or you can do cheese on the outside edge and spread/eggs on the inside. Cook over medium-low in a skillet until cheese is melted and outsides are toasted, 10-15 minutes.
