Breakfast Bruschetta

Prep Time: 15 min Cook Time: 10 min Serves: 6

Start your day off right with this hearty, savoury, and satisfying twist on a classic. Bruschetta, a traditional Italian antipasto of grilled bread, with garlic, olive oil, and often chopped tomato is a familiar appetizer. Here we use a base of high fibre toast and pile it high with an enhanced scrambled egg topping packed with onions, tomatoes and basil.

This breakfast is sure to fuel your day and keep you satisfied until lunch, at just 3 SmartPoints® per serving. You could even turn this into brunch by serving it with an assortment of other breakfast items, such as fresh fruit and yogurt.
