Rosemary Smoked Tomato Jam and Poached Egg

Rosmary Tomato Jam and Poached Egg

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 1¼ hours
Serves: 8
Level: Easy


Rosemary Smoked Tomato Jam:
900g (2lb) tomatoes, cored, halved and seeded
1 onion, thickly sliced
1 small poblano (or medium heat) chilli, seeded
50g (2oz) brown sugar
2 tbs cider vinegar
1 tsp Schwartz Rosemary
½ tsp Schwartz Sea Salt
¼ tsp Schwartz Ground Black Pepper

1 tbs white wine vinegar
8 eggs
8 slices, thickly sliced rustic bread


1. For the Rosemary Smoked Tomato Jam, grill tomatoes, onion and poblano chile on a medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until lightly charred, turning occasionally. Coarsely chop the tomatoes, onion and poblano chilli, then place in medium saucepan. Add brown sugar, cider vinegar, Rosemary, Salt and Pepper and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

2. Meanwhile, for the poached eggs, fill large deep saucepan with 5cm (2 inches) of water. Add white wine vinegar and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium, break 1 egg into a small dish and carefully slide the egg into gently simmering water (bubbles should begin to break the surface of the water). Repeat with remaining eggs. Poach eggs for 3-5 minutes, or until whites are completely set and the yolks begin to thicken. Carefully remove eggs with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

3. To serve, place 1 slice of bread on each plate. Top with Rosemary Smoked Tomato Jam and a poached egg.
