Baked Eggs in Tomato Cups

Pin It

Hello all! I know it's been awhile, but I found a yummy new breakfast recipe I wanted to share. So...I love eggs. They can be made any way and I will eat them up. I always have eggs for breakfast, and many times I have one as an after dinner snack before I go to bed. Recently my sister introduced me to the site Food Gawker. I'm sure many of you are already familiar with this treasure trove of recipes, but apparently I was living under a rock. After many hours of surfing the site I typed in eggs under the search. This recipe was on the first page and I knew I HAD to make it. It's so simple, and so tasty, I highly recommend this if you're a fan of eggs and tomatoes together. The original recipe uses tarragon as the spice, but I switched it to thyme. You can use any spice you like though...basil would also be good. Enjoy!
