You know that famous scene in Sex and The City where Carrie Bradshaw stands in front of the store window, gazing lovingly at a pair of Manolo Blahnik shoes and breathlessly says “Hello Lover…” well that’s me every time I make Heirloom Tomato Burrata Toast with Poached Eggs. Maybe, just maybe, the most romantic breakfast ever!

Oh So Good, Oh So Pretty!
Seriously, the color, the texture…that gooey yolk! A hint of fresh basil and a drizzle of Balsamic Glaze pretty much makes this the breakfast of my dreams.
