Vegetarian Times, Sept 2006

Member Veena sent this, noting it was an amazing way to have tomatoes! I concur…but, you have to love eggs and tomatoes. It is a household favorite to have an fried egg sandwich with sliced tomatoes—just yummy! Obviously this recipe is easily adjusted 😉

  • 8 large tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 8 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp. dried herbs, such as oregano, chervil, basil or sage 

Preheat oven to 425°F. Slice tops off tomatoes, and scoop out seeds and pulp. Place tomatoes in shallow baking dish, and sprinkle cavities with salt, pepper and pinches of cheese.

Crack one egg into each tomato. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, herbs and remaining cheese. Bake 20 minutes for soft yolks, 30 to 35 minutes for hard yolks. Serve immediately.
