Dressed-Up Scrambled Egg Sandwich

Serves 4

Make this substantial breakfast sandwich even better by adding your favorite breakfast meats, sliced rib eye, avocado or roasted red pepper slices

8 slices country style bread
Olive oil
2 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
4 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 large ripe tomato, cored, seeds removed and finely diced
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Butter lettuce leaves
Fresh basil leaves
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Olive oil for drizzling

Lightly brush the slices of bread with olive oil, then grill or broil each slice.   Meanwhile, place butter into a sauté pan over low beat. When the butter melts, add the garlic, parsley, hot pepper flakes, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the eggs and stir slowly over low beat until the mixture starts to form small curds, (careful not to overcook). Gently fold in the tomatoes and add salt and pepper to taste. 

Arrange and divide the egg mixture onto the 4 slices of toasted bread. Top each with lettuce and basil leaves and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover with remaining 4 slices.   Serve immediately.
