Breakfast Bruschetta

Do you love brunches? I really do since I get to combine two meals in one. The best part is less dishes-most of the time. If we don't go out for Sunday breakfast, we will make breakfast. Sunday is the only day I will cook a big breakfast. On occasion, I can even talk my husband into cooking and dishes. It is the best way to start the day.
I think this would make the perfect special breakfast for someone. If some fruit is added with the perfect breakfast beverage, I think it would be pretty fancy and easy. It is a great way to use up some left over french bread.
Breakfast Bruschetta
3 eggs
2 egg whites
1 tsp milk
1 tsp butter
12 slices of french bread
1 tsp olive oil 
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp rosemary
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp thyme

1 plum tomato, chopped
4 oz. cheddar cheese
salt and pepper for taste

  1. In a medium bowl, add the eggs, egg whites, and milk. Whisk well until combined.
  2. In a cold medium skillet,  add the butter with the egg mixture. 
  3. Turn the stove to medium and whisk eggs slowly while heating up.
  4. Continue to cook the eggs until cooked through. Set aside.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, oregano, parsley, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. 
  6. Brush each top of the sliced french bread with the olive oil. 
  7. Toast the french bread in the toaster oven, oven, or grill.
  8. Fold the tomato into the eggs until incorporated.
  9. Add the egg mixture on top of the toasted bread.
  10. Top with cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  11. Serve immediately.
