Think of it as a dinnertime version of breakfast...

Whole Living had a recipe for Baked Eggs in Whole Roasted Tomatoes in their most recent issue.  I was talking to a (very talented) friend, Jemme Aldridge*, recently and she told me that she had tried it so I asked her to share her results.

From Jemme:
The original recipe is from Whole Living.  Here is my version...
  • preheat oven to 400
  • slice off top of an organic tomato, scoop out most of inside
  • place tomato in baking dish
  • drizzle tomato with EV olive oil 
  • chop up a garlic clove, fresh rosemary, fresh oregano, thyme and sprinkle on tomato
  • broil tomato until tender (about 30 minutes)
  • crack an egg in tomato (sprinkle with sea salt & fresh cracked pepper )
  • broil again until egg is cooked (only a few minutes )
  • serve over couscous, salad, asparagus, etc...
I love cooking the egg until it has the texture of a poached egg, so that when you break into it, it becomes like a sauce for whatever is below.  The picture below shows it over Moroccan couscous.  Think of it as a dinnertime version of breakfast...

This sounds delicious.  Thanks for sharing, Jemme!

Have a great week,
