Baked tomato stuffed with eggs

 

 

 

We all love a simple egg recipe to bring a little change to our daily breakfast menu right? So this is my version of a simple breakfast. Both healthy and easy to make. It is packed with proteins and the goodness of vegetables. So with the big glass of juice and some bread, you have a wholesome breakfast. My mom has a zillion recipes with eggs specifically for breakfast They start with the ordinary scrambled eggs and include the Kerala version of Mutta roast ( egg roast). I don remember a single day that I left home without a good balanced breakfast.

Ingredients:-

  1. Tomato – 4 ( cleaned and the insides scooped out with a spoon)
  2. Eggs – 4
  3. Onions – 2 (chopped)
  4. Ginger – garlic paste – 1/2 tbsp
  5. Salt – 1/2 tbsp
  6. Dry parsley – 1/2 tbsp
  7. Oil –  1 tsp + just to brush the tomato before putting them into the oven
  8. Cheese – 1 cup ( optional)

Instructions :-

  1. Firstly wash and clean the tomatoes
  2. Cut the top and bottom of each of the tomatoes so as to allow them to sit up straight and then with a spoon or a melon baller scoop out the fleshy part inside the tomato, leaving the shell intact ( it should look like a small bowl )
  3. Now in a pan heat 1 tsp oil and then fry onion and ginger garlic paste. Once they are done, switch off the flame and add the dry parsley. Finally add salt and mix well. Set aside to cool
  4. Line your baking tray with foil to bake the tomato. Pre heat the oven to 180
  5. Now take the cooled onion  mixture and fill all the tomatoes half way.The crack open the eggs and add onto the tomato bowl over the onion mixture
  6. Once done with all the tomatoes, line them on the foil and top it off with cheese
  7. Bake for 10 – 15 mins or until the skin of the tomato begins to wrinkle
  8. Serve hot with toasted bread

Tips

  • If you feel like the tomatoes are too small, crack the eggs open over another bowl and use only half an egg. ( egg yolk included)
  • Try to brush the tomato with oil before you bake to give it a little crackle. The inside will still be nice and soft
  • If you do not like parsley, go ahead and add your favourite type of spice mix (cajun, italian, indian, zatar etc)
