This was an interesting change for breakfast. The tomato goes really well with the egg and spices. I used a cold egg, but it would have been much better with a warm one. I just couldn't toss the pulp out, so I set it aside, and then warmed it in the skillet with the spices to spoon over the top instead of using canned tomato sauce. For ZWT8 om-nom-nommers :-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the tomatoes crosswise in half and remove the pulp.
  2. Season lightly with salt and pepper, and cook in hot oil for a few minutes.
  3. Place a freshly shelled egg in each tomato half and pour over them a little thick tomato sauce or puree.
