Breakfast tomatoes

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan. Add tomatoes, thyme and season with cracked pepper.
  2. Cook on low heat for 3 to 5 minutes – tomatoes should still be firm.
  3. Place into 6 ramekins.
  4. Place gruyère slices into 6 side dishes.
  5. Cut toasted ciabatta and divide into 6 for each serving.
  6. Serve medley immediately as individual servings while the tomatoes are still hot.
