A great easy breakfast dish. Great on toast, muffins and a makes a great breakfast especially served with bacon. Note-- Large tomatoes must be used or egg will spill out.

Wow, I really enjoyed this lovely breakfast treat. So simple and yet so delicious, quick and very easy to make and easy to vary. I used a blend of mozzarella and parmesan cheese, didn't have any parsley so I used cilantro. The tomato holds up beautifully in the oven. My egg was a little over done, but that was me and not the recipe. I can't wait to make this again. Thank you for sharing your recipe Tisme.
