Egg & Tomato Tower with Yogurt-Cheese & Scallions

Breakfast at TCV's house is usually some combo of three ingredients: tomato, egg, & cheese. This egg sandwich looks fancy and requires the use of a fork, but it tastes the same as slapping a fried egg, tomato, and cheese between a couple of slices of bread. However, if you are having some folks over for brunch this would be a nice thing to set in front of them at your table. All you do is use a cup (like a cookie cutter) to cut out bread rounds.  Then do the same thing with cooked (like an omelette) eggs. Grill the bread rounds in a pan with some butter. Find a tomato that is about the same size as your cut-outs, and slice it up. Get to stackin'. Keep it warm in a low oven. the tomato will keep it from drying out. Top with cheese and scallions. Admire the thing of beauty you just made. Eat it.
