Ingredients

  • 3 roma tomatoes (halved lengthwise)
  • cooking oil (spray)
  • 8 slices bread (wholegrain)
  • 2 tablespoons basil pesto
  • 3 ounces mozzarella cheese (grated)
  • 2 ounces baby spinach
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk

Directions

  1. Preheat a grill pan over high heat. Lightly spray tomatoes with oil and grill for 3 mins on each side or until browned and just soft. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  2. To assemble, spread 4 slices of bread with pesto. Top each with cheese and spinach, then the remaining bread slices. Secure with toothpicks.
  3. To cook, melt half the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Whisk eggs and milk in a shallow dish. Dip 2 sandwiches into egg mixture, turning, until bread is completely soaked. Add sandwiches to the frying pan and cook for 2 mins on each side or until golden and cooked through. Repeat with remaining butter and sandwiches. Discard toothpicks and cut sandwiches in half. Serve with the tomatoes.
