  • 8 large, round tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 6 slices organic, nitrate-free turkey bacon, chopped
  • Dash of dried oregano, plus more for garnish
  • Optional dash of salt (added salt is not in nutritional analysis)
  • Dash of pepper
  • 8 organic, omega-3, free range eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Wash tomatoes, slice off the tops and scoop out the insides. 

  3. Place tomatoes on a pan, and bake for 5 minutes.

  4. In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and chopped bacon. 

  5. Sauté for 5 minutes, until mostly cooked. Add the spices and mix well.

  6. Turn oven to broil.

  7. Fill each tomato with the bacon mixture, leaving about 1/2 inch of space at the top of each tomato. Crack an egg into each tomato then sprinkle with oregano. 

  8. 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.

  9. For well done eggs: change oven temperature back to 400 degrees F, and continue to bake for an additional 10 minutes.
