Fried Eggs Italiano with Tomato Crostini

 3 tbsp Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or more as desired,divided
 4 eggs
 4 tbsp freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese
 salt and pepper to taste
 4 thick slices crusty bread, preferably Italian
 1 roma tomato, sliced
 4 slices bacon, cooked to desired crispiness
 mixed fruit such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries for an optional fruit salad

Heat 2 tablespoons Colavita Olive Oil in a non-stick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat.


Break eggs into the skillet and cook as you like them. We recommend sunny-side up!


Meanwhile, toast or broil the bread until golden brown. Place the tomato slices on top of the toasted bread and drizzle with a little more Colavita Olive Oil.


Place the cooked eggs on top of the tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt pepper and freshly grated Parmegiano Reggiano cheese.


Serve alongside crispy bacon and a fruit salad if desired!
