I truly love a savory breakfast — it’s no secret that I always love an avocado toast (like this one!), and I’ve been wanting to share my favorite “breakfast salad” recipe on here for a while. But the produce lately has been so gorgeous, I thought I’d set aside my avocado toast for something a little more seasonal. Since the Jersey beefsteak tomatoes are in their prime right now, I chose to make a savory tartine with it as the star — it’s as simple as it is delicious, while taking full advantage of summer’s bounty. If you’re in the mood for a little something extra, I recommend putting an egg on this one.


Savory Breakfast Tartine

Ingredients:

  • 4 pieces whole-grain bread
  • 2 garlic cloves, whole
  • 1 large beefsteak tomato, sliced thin
  • 1/2 small cucumber, very thinly sliced
  • 2-3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons dill, roughly chopped
  • Extra Virgin olive oil to drizzle
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper
Instructions:
  1. Toast slices whole-grain bread, then while warm, rub garlic clove over each piece of toast.
  2. Spread mustard over each bread slice, then layer with thinly sliced cucumber, heirloom tomato slices and a sprinkle of chopped dill.  Continue with each until you have four tartines.
  3. Drizzle a good extra virgin olive oil over each tartine, top with flaky sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

    I can still remember the first non-traditional breakfast I ever had. It was liberating! I look forward to trying this one and the avocado toasts! Thanks.

    I love starting with whole grain toast and add whatever vegetables I have on hand. And, I do sometimes add an egg. I have never tried the mustard and garlic. I am looking forward to trying this one. It looks wonderful.
