This is a wonderful and easy bake for the weekend brunch or everyday lunch. As a child, I used love the smell of the baked melted cheese happily married with the egg and tomato & spring onions on bread, now my children can’t get enough of it! Big bonus; even the pickiest children wouldn’t mind the tomatoes and onions baked in the mixture:)
Preparation time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 20-25 minutes
4 eggs, beaten
2 medium tomatoes, finely diced
2 spring (green onions), finely chopped
100 gr/3 1/2 oz shredded cheddar or mozzarella (or crumbled beyaz peynir or feta)
15 ml/ 1 tablespoon olive oil
6 slices of medium sized bread
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
Pul biber or red pepper flakes for sprinkle for serving (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180 C/ 350 F
Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add the tomatoes, spring (green) onions, cheese and olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper and combine well.
Place the slices of bread over non-stick baking paper on the baking tray. Spread the mixture evenly on each slice and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the mixture starts turning to golden color.
Serve hot with pul biber or red pepper flakes sprinkled over if you like. Shepherd Salad of chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers in sumac and olive oil sauce goes well by the side.
