After getting up early on Saturday morning to watch the beginning of the RWC, I thought how nice would it be to make a wholesome breakfast, quickly from scratch.
To speed thing up in the morning you can have the tomatoes already done and then its quite and easy to finish.

First up, you can do this the day before
