How to make the breakfast sandwich of your dreams:

1. Before assembling this Italian Inspired Breakfast Sandwich, we must prepare the ingredients and bake the Torta.

2. Begin with baking Torta and follow the directions on the package, if baking from room temperature then bake at 375 for 5-7 minutes, if baking from frozen then bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.

3. Scrambled Eggs- Whisk 2 large eggs with a splash of water, dash of salt, and pepper then spray a nonstick skillet with olive oil spray and cook on medium heat until cooked through (about 2-5 minutes).

4. Tomato- Wash, dry, and slice 1 large beefsteak tomato.

5. Basil- Wash and dry basil leaves.

6. One the bread is done baking, add 3 tbsp of pesto to one half of the Torta and the scrambled eggs to the other Torta half.

7. Add a slice of provolone cheese to the top of the scrambled eggs.

8. Add 2-3 basil leaves on top.

9. Finally, add a large tomato slice and top with the other half of the Torta.

10. Slice in half and Enjoy!
