Fancy Pants Breakfast


I posted this recipe a few months back, after having dreamt about it.. literally.

I decided to make it again... this time, I modified it a little... used bigger tomatoes, and added mozzarella. Still very yum. I find it hard to believe I'm the only one who has thought of this??



Its pretty simple really.... cut the tops off two large tomatoes. Scoop all the filling out so youre left with a little nifty tomato bowl. Salt generously inside, and turn upside down to draw out the moisture for about 15 mins. Pat insides with a paper towel.

Place the tomato bowls onto a lightly oiled baking sheet and fill about 1/4 of the way with shredded mozzarella. Carefully break the egg into the tomato.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 30 mins. Garnish with some chopped green onions.

Arrange fancily like I did if you want to pretend you run and fancy pants B&B like Dave and I were this morning.

I would've considered thowing those tomatoes on a cast iron skillet just for about a minute or so :)
