Eggs with Tomatoes

Happy Saturday! What a great way to start our day with this yummy breakfast and a fun skype session with family! The recipe below comes from our favorite cookbook The Silver Spoon. If you like Italian cooking and love good food…it’s a must!Eggs with Tomatoes

Serves 4
Preparation: 30 minutes Cooking: 25 minutes

2 teaspoons olive oil, plus extra for brushing
4 large tomatoes
pinch of dried oregano
4 eggs
1 sprig fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 F. Brush an oven proof dish with olive oil. Cut the tops off the tomatoes and scoop out the seeds and some of the flesh. Sprinkle the insides with a little salt and place them upside down on a paper towels for about 10 minutes to drain. Season the insides of the tomatoes with oregano and pepper and divide the olive oil among them. Place the tomatoes in the prepared dish and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the dish from the oven, break an egg into each tomato, return the dish to the oven, and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Note: We don’t like our eggs quite as runny so we put them back in the oven for an additional 15-20 minutes! Maybe our oven is off or maybe the recipe is off…you decide!I’m off to pick up some items for our herb garden that I will be planting today…can’t wait to see how it turns out πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful weekend!
