When I think about weekend breakfasts, eggs are always on my mind. So my go-to meals for breakfast and brunch usually include some eggs. They are not only a healthy source of protein but also so delicious and versatile.
The last eggcellent meal that always comes back into my mind is a breakfast I enjoy at Joma restaurant in Viennas 1st district whenever I go there. So I wanted to create my own version of this delicious treat to serve at home.
This healthy breakfast bread is layered with nutrient-dense toppings that make a flavourful combo. As a first layer, I used hummus to incorporate some Middle Eastern flavour and creaminess. The spinach adds some fresh veggies and crunch into the mix. Last but not least, the poached egg completes this wholesome treat. Call it the protein-rich version of a hummus toast.

Next, layer on the spinach.
Lastly, put on the poached or fried egg, sprinkle with sea salt, pepper and sesame seeds, and serve.
