The VegHog's Tomato Festival continues and here is a quite different tomato idea to yesterday's pasta bolognese. I made some oak smoked tomato and pepper bagels, which were extremely tasty but also quick to make. Tomatoes are a brilliant ingredient for different breakfast variations and I quite often find myself using tomatoes on breakfast breads or omelettes. These hearty and smoky bagels would prepare you well for any day. I combined fresh and oak smoked tomatoes in these. If you can't get a hold of oak smoked tomatoes, substitute them with sundried tomatoes.
½ red onion
1 romano pepper
Few oak smoked tomatoes
Few mini plum tomatoes
Birch smoked salt
Ground black pepper
100 g Havarti cheese
4 sesame bagels
Cut the red onion and romano pepper into half rings and fry them briefly in oil in a pan.
Cut the bagels in half and put the onions, peppers, oak smoked tomatoes and mini plum tomatoes on them and season with salt and pepper.
Add the cheese and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until the cheese has melted.
Serve with fresh basil and lamb's lettuce.
Enjoy as breakfast or lunch or even evening snack.
