Fud Pr0n: Eggs Bruschetta

Awhile back I was flying from O'Hare to LAX early in the morning and wasn't sure where to eat. Saw that Macaroni Grill was open & thought "What kind of food does Macaroni Grill make for breakfast?!" it seems like such a lunch / dinner place. I ordered the eggs & was pleasantly surprised that they topped it with bruschetta. INGENIOUS!

This is my take, so apologies if the recipe isn't that detailed...I kind of just threw stuff in it.

This recipe is SUPER easy - it's a little prep-heavy since there is chopping & dicing, but there is little cooking, so it's the perfect breakfast! I made this for Rye Bread's sister when she arrived from SF & she liked it so much, I made it for the whole family the next day!
What you'll need:
+ 2 1/2 cups chopped cherry (or grape) tomatoes
+ 1/2 cup chopped onion
+ 3 cloves of minced garli
+ 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
+ 2 tbsp evoo
+ 1 1/2 pinches of kosher salt
+ cracked black pepper
+ fresh basil
+ shaved parmesan cheese
+ 4 eggs
+ salt & pepper to taste for the eggs
+ rustic toast (or french baguette)

+ quarter the cherry / grape tomatoes
+ chop onion
+ mince 3 gloves of garlic (I just used a garlic press)
+ mix tomatoes, garlic, onions in a bowl
+ add balsamic vinegar & evoo
+ add salt & pepper to taste
+ scramble eggs (hint: while you're busy with the bruschetta, let the eggs out of the fridge to be at room temperature)
+ place bruschetta on scrambled eggs
+ add freshly chopped basil & shaved parmesan cheese
+ pair with cheese rustic toast

Bon appetit!
