Super easy way to use up some leftover sourdough bread
Very often we have some stale bread laying around in the bread box.
I always try to find ways to use it up and recently I came up with this dish.
It is not a perfect meal for our children though as they are not big on vegetables as well as eggs ( especially our son) so I prepared it for our lunch.
We both work from home so almost every day we have lunch together and I prepare something that the kids wouldn't eat but we love.
This recipe is very easy to make and is perfect to use up whatever you might have in the fridge.
We had some roasted vegetables left from our dinner the previous day and some pizza sauce that we made with our pizza class.
So I fried some shallots in shallow pan, once they were translucent, I added the basic pasta sauce ( just the best quality chopped tomatoes and olive oil cooked till the water is almost evaporated).
Once everything is super hot, I added the roasted vegetables - Usually
I chop them into chunks, add a good amount of olive oil, salt, chili flakes, balsamic vinegar and roast them at 200 degrees for about 30 minutes.
In this case I roasted some mixed peppers, courgettes and aubergines.
So I stir everything well.( you could add some parsley at that stage so it will flavour the sauce)
Once everything was well incorporated, I cracked some eggs, sliced some bread and cut into strips, arranged it between the eggs, sprinkled some feta and... Voila.
I Left it on the hob on medium heat for about 3-4 minutes so the egg at the bottom is cooked and put the pan under the grill so it firms up.
I added some fresh parsley and served it with a smile.
It was so quick to make, the bread soaked up some of the tomato juice and was lovely and toasted on the top.
