Crushed tomatoes with a dash of balsamic, avocado and basil is a mighty good way to start the day, served on this homemade breakfast loaf. My daughter makes the loaf then freezes individual slices, ready to make into toast for her early mid-week morning starts. On the weekends, frying it in a pan with a bit of butter makes it nice and crispy.
