Tomato bread

This is a recipe that i found last year and continuously keep baking  monthly as this bread is the perfect companion to soups and soft cheeses .  Grilled cheese sandwiches  using this bread takes the meal to another culinary level or used as a garlic bread for pasta dishes and soups. I was skeptical at first when i seen that the recipe uses an egg  but once combined and cooked , the finished result is great so i didn’t really mind.
