Greek Bruschetta Breakfast Makes The Perfect Weekend Breakfast
If you’re like me, you’ve probably been looking to make your breakfast a little brighter. Well, look no further than this recipe for Greek Bruschetta Breakfast! This is an easy dish that can be made in just minutes and will leave your taste buds in heaven.
1 pint cherry tomatoes
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat. Cut the tomatoes in half and place them cut side up on the baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 35 minutes then flip each tomato over so that they are now skin side up and bake for another 15 minutes until completely softened but not mushy (you want them to maintain their shape).
Remove from oven and let cool slightly before transferring to a food processor or blender along with basil leaves, garlic cloves and lemon juice (you can also add some fresh thyme here if desired). Pulse until smooth then taste test! Adjust seasoning as necessary by adding more vinegar/lemon juice or salt & pepper depending on preference. Serve warm or cold as part of an appetizer platter alongside other Greek inspired dishes like olives & feta cheese etc.
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
Garlic is a great way to add flavour to the dish. It’s also a good source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
2 tbsp olive oil
In a large skillet over medium heat, add in the olive oil. Once it’s hot, add in the garlic and saute until fragrant (about 30 seconds). The smell should be wonderful!
Use eggs that are at room temperature. If you don’t have time to let them sit out, place the cold eggs in a bowl of warm water for about 10 minutes. Beat the eggs together in a bowl until fluffy, then pour them into a flat-bottomed medium pan and heat over medium heat while constantly stirring the egg mixture with a wooden spoon or spatula until it becomes thickened and cooked through (about 7 minutes).
Fresh oregano (to taste)
This recipe uses fresh oregano. Oregano is a herb that is native to the Mediterranean region and is most commonly found in Greek and Italian cooking. It has a distinct, pungent flavor that blends well with many different types of food, including tomato-based dishes like bruschetta and pizza. If you don’t have fresh oregano on hand, substitute dried oregano or another fresh herb such as basil or parsley instead!
Salt and pepper (to taste)
It’s important to season the bread before you toast it. Since we’re making this breakfast recipe, I recommend using a Greek bruschetta seasoning blend that includes salt and pepper as its main ingredients.
Salt is an essential seasoning because it brings out other flavors in food and enhances their complexity while giving our food a little more flavor than it would otherwise have had with just pepper alone (or no seasoning at all). Pepper is also an essential ingredient when making bruschetta—it has long been a staple ingredient in many Mediterranean dishes like this one!
Capers, chopped green olives, parsley and oregano (for garnish)
For the garnish:
Capers are the flower buds of a small bush that grows in the Mediterranean. They’re usually preserved in salt, which makes them crunchy and salty. In this recipe, we’ll use capers as a garnish, but if you want to add fresh ones to your breakfast bruschetta, go for it! Just make sure not to eat too many—capers are pretty much just salty vegetable after all.
- You want bread that’s crunchy and crusty, so soft bread is a no-go. You’ll want to use something like sourdough or French baguette instead.
- If you’re making this for yourself and don’t have a toaster, feel free to grill your bread slices instead! That will give it a nice charring on the outside and make sure all of those delicious juices stay inside where they belong.
- Remember: 1 inch slices are crucial for this recipe; any bigger than that could make eating it awkward (and dangerous).
