Ingredients

  • 4 large, round tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 slices organic, nitrate-free turkey bacon, chopped
  • dash of dried oregano, plus more for garnish
  • dash of pepper
  • 4 organic, omega-3, free range eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Wash your tomatoes, slice off their tops and scoop out the insides. Place your tomatoes on a pan and bake for 5 minutes.
  • In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add garlic. Add onion. Add chopped bacon. Sauté for 5 minutes, until mostly cooked. Add the spices and mix well.
  • Turn oven to broil.
  • Fill each tomato with the bacon mixture, leaving about a 1/2 inch of space at the top of each tomato. Crack an egg into each tomato then sprinkle with oregano. Place in the oven under broiler for 5 minutes. Remove from oven once the top has set, and you’ll have perfectly done over easy eggs.
  • For well done eggs: change oven temperature back to 400 degrees F, and continue to bake for an additional 10 minutes.
