This is literally the BEST TOMATO TOAST!!! And it’s super easy with a few small components that elevate the standard tomato toast. Make it while tomatoes are at their peak!



  • 12 oz. package bacon
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • small bunch of chives
  • 16 oz. loaf artisan bread
  • 68 eggs
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • flaky sea salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil


  1. Cook bacon on stove top or in oven.
  2. Prepare ingredients:
    Place mayonnaise in a small bowl.
    Mince garlic as small as you can and add to mayo bowl.
    Zest and juice lemon (you’ll need half) and add 1 Tbsp. lemon juice to mayo bowl. Save zest.
    Wash and thinly slice the chives.
    Slice bread.
    Whisk eggs together in a bowl.
  3. Start a large non-stick pan over medium low heat. Add butter to pan and when it sizzles, add eggs, stirring continuously, until eggs have set, about 3-6 minutes. Season with 1/8 tsp. salt and pepper. Set aside until dinner.
  4. Slice tomatoes and lightly toast bread. You want the slightest hint of crunch.
  5. Layer mayo mixture on bread, and top with: tomatoes + drizzle of olive oil + flaky salt + freshly ground pepper + lemon zest + chives. Serve with bacon and eggs.


  • Get your kids involved! They can: mix mayo mixture together, top their own tomato toast.
  • Wait to slice tomatoes until right before eating so that you retain as much of the juice as you can!
