Submitted by: RD03875

Introduction

I saw this recipe and modified it a bit. It's ok but not something I would eat on a regular basis.
Use whatever cheese you like and use herbs and spices to suit YOUR taste.

Ingredients

    1 medium whole Tomato
    1 whole Egg
    1/2 slice Swiss Cheese
    1/2 slice Cheddar Cheese
    Fresh dill or other herb
    salt IF DESIRED
    pepper

Tips

Use whatever cheese you prefer and whatever herbs and spices you prefer.
You can also scramble the egg and cook it in the tomato.


Directions

Preheat oven to 425F
Remove tops from tomatoes and scoop out seeds and pulp.

Place in a shallow baking dish, sprinkle with a bit of salt or Mrs Dash seasoning, fresh ground pepper and put in a pinch of cheese.

Crack the egg into the tomato. Sprinkle with pepper, salt or Mrs. Dash, other herbs and a tiny bit of cheese

Bake for 20 minutes for soft yolks and 30 to 35 for hard. During the last 4 minutes place two slices of the cheese in a cross pattern on top. Melt and let brown. When I removed I put a small amount of fresh chives on top of the cheese.
