    Tisme's Note:

    Got this of a Television show, and made them for breakfast. The family loved them and have asked for me to make them again. They are very filling and would be great served as a meal for an easy dinner as they are served on toast.

      Great breakfast for the DM and I this morning. I scaled back for 2 tomatoes and we had 1 each. Baked at 170C fan forced but would recommend checking at the 30 to 35 minute mark. Would also like to try this using smoked salmon in place of the ham. Served with buttered wholemeal/wholegrain toast. Thanks Tisme for another keeper, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 11.

      This recipe tasted like a bite of summer when I made it during a cold winters evening. I modified the recipe by cutting the tomato in half lenghtwise so I had two tomato boats which I filled with egg mixture. It cooked quicker (about 25-30 min). Used sliced deli ham and sharp cheddar cheese as well as low-fat milk to help cut some calories. Fit two tomato halves on one piece of lightly buttered toast. Very filling as well as satisfying.
