Piers Morgan is a keen foodie

Since his departure from GMB's breakfast show alongside co-host Susanna Reid, Piers clearly has more time in his mornings to whip up experimental creations in the kitchen. This recipe, in particular, has divided his 1.6 million Instagram followers.

The broadcaster shared his decadent creation on Instagram along with the caption: "BREAKING: I've created the greatest breakfast ever made" before going on to claim his tomato topped toast was "absolutely sensational" urging his followers to try it for themselves and thank him later.

Would you try Piers' truffle and tomato topped toast?

Fans were unsure on Piers' controversial breakfast, with many convinced his recipe was far more suitable for a light lunch.

Taking to the comments to slam the presenter for his tomato toast that was "too posh" for an average weekly shop, one fan joked: "Nice one, I'll just nip to Asda to buy all that", whilst another teased: "Do I need a mortgage to buy all this!?".

If you're feeling adventurous and you did want to try Piers' toast recipe, Beluza pesto is actually available from most major supermarkets. Described as 'a blend of black truffles from Piedmont, artichokes from Puglia and aged Parmigiano Reggiano.' It's definitely a change from your usual jam on toast!

Without Good Morning Britain to tie him to London, Piers Morgan recently relocated with his wife Celia Walden and their daughter Elise to Newick, Sussex. The family have a second home there in the countryside, and it looks truly idyllic.
