- 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
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Wash tomatoes, slice off the tops and scoop out the insides.
Place tomatoes on a pan, and bake for 5 minutes.
In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and 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 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.
