Caprese Eggs

Simple, quick, and a great twist on a traditional over easy egg for breakfast. This would be really yummy on a piece of toast as well. I've been on a Caprese Kick lately, adding tomato, basil and mozzarella to everything! This one was a yummy combination that I'll be having again.

1 Egg
2 slices of tomato (about 1/4" thick)
1-2 fresh basil leaves
1 tbs shredded Mozzarella
drizzle of Balsamic Vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

heat a pan over medium heat (spray with cooking spray if necessary)

on one side of the pan place the 2 tomato slices, topped with the basil leaves and mozzarella. On the other side, crack the egg. ( I was able to do this in one pan without the egg running to the tomatoes, if you're using a small pan or its a little warped you may want to use 2 separate pans.)

Cook the egg to your desired taste, and just let the tomatoes and cheese heat up simultaneously.

Transfer the eggs to a plate, top with the tomato, basil, and cheese.
salt and pepper to taste and drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on top.
