Poached Eggs & Roasted Tomato Open-Face Sandwiches

 
Photo by Aylin Erman
Serves 2
 
What You'll Need:
 
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 thick slice of hearty bread, cut in half 
2 thick tomato slices (or 1 plum tomato, halved lengthwise)
1 small handful arugula
Salt and pepper
 
What to Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, or until softened and deepened in color.
  3. Place the arugula  on both halves of the bread.
  4. Now it's time to poach the eggs: Bring a small pot of water to a boil and immediately reduce to a soft boil or simmer. Add the vinegar and delicately crack one egg into the water, let it cook for about 1 minute. Remove with a large, holed spoon. Repeat with the other egg.
  5. Place each egg as delicately as possible onto the bed of arugula, careful not to crack the yolk.
  6. Add 1 tomato slice atop each egg, season with salt and pepper, and serve.
