My Go-To Breakfast: Spinach + Tomato Egg Toast

Out of the recipes I have written about, most of them have been about breakfast (Exhibit A). Since I'm most definitely not a morning person, I always look forward to taking my time making breakfast with the Today Show in the background. Today, I'm showing one of favorite recipes - which is not really a recipe since it's incredibly easy (while still being filling and pretty good for you)

- 1 slice of whole grain bread
- 1 egg
- 1 T olive oil
- spinach
- tomato 
- salt + pepper
- favorite seasonings 
- Heat olive oil in a pan on medium. Then, using a knife or biscuit cutter, cut out the center of the bread.
-Toast one side of the bread in the pan, and crack an egg into the hole. Cook for a couple of minutes. 
-Flip the toast over and finish cooking the egg (unless you like sunny side up!). 
-Remove from pan and add a handful of spinach and sliced tomato. Sautee until spinach has wilted.
-Top the toast with the vegetables, adding salt and pepper and some more seasoning. I love lemon and rosemary!
This takes a minimum of five minutes, and I love the combination of flavors. Cooking the egg in the middle of the toast is optional, but I think it's so much more fun that way!
