Italian Egg and Tomatoes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Debbwl

A tasty and budget friendly meal that's inspiration comes from a local Italian restaurant. Prep time and cook time do not include making or grilling the polenta. As I use Parmesan cheese polenta I have made the night before and therefor just slice and grill it. You could also buy and use pre-made polenta although to me it has less flavor.

Great simple recipe full of flavor! I don't care for onions so left them out. I made this for a quick lunch so I didn't bother with the polenta, just served with some toasted garlic bread. The cook time was perfect for the eggs, firm but with liquid yolks. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
