Cheesy Eggs Baked in Tomatoes with Pita Toast
It finally got cool here and we can turn the oven on. Yay Autumn! This is a delicious, cheesy and very easy dish. It also looks very pretty if you’re having people over for breakfast.
Cut around the core of the tomato and discard. Cut a wide-ish circle into the tops of however many tomatoes you’re cooking and scoop out some of the tomato, creating an opening big enough to hold an egg. Chop the parts you scooped out and mix with slivers of garlic, salt & pepper, basil and olive oil. Drizzle some of the juice from this garlicky mixture into the cored tomato to give it flavor as it bakes. Place the chopped mixture in the bottom sides of a small oven proof dish, one oven proof dish per tomato. Place the cored tomato in the center and bake at 400 for about 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and crack an egg in the center. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and julienned basil. Return to the oven and bake an additional 10 or 15 minutes until the egg is cooked, cheese is melted, and the tomato is soft and bubbly. Add pita bread to the oven for the last 3 or 4 minutes of baking to toast. Yummy!
