Okay, so technically I’m not following the Paleo diet anymore (that’s clear when I’m at work eating cookies and bread mm) but that doesn’t mean I don’t like Paleo recipes. Even if you’re not on the Paleo diet, I think the Everyday Paleo cookbook is pretty good. For the most part, the recipes are clean and very easy, which I love.
Anyway, I was searching our fridge the other day trying to throw together something using what we already had. I sometimes have the tendency to buy a bunch of veggies, obviously with the intention of eating them, then slowly losing interest throughout the week, therefore the veggies go bad. It drives my husband crazy (understandably so).
So, we didn’t have a ton to work with, but we did have two beefsteak tomatoes that were definitely on their way out. Luckily, the Everyday Paleo book had a yummy egg recipes involving big ol’ tomatoes.
- 2 beefsteak tomatoes
- 2 eggs
- 3 slices of bacon
- salt and pepper to taste
First, cut the top off the tomatoes and gently scoop the insides out. I used a spoon and it seemed to work well enough.
Next, crack one egg in each tomato.
Sprinkle each tomato with salt and pepper and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. While the eggs are baking, fry the bacon in a pan. Obviously, you don’t have to use bacon or you can use turkey bacon or probably even ham. The original recipe also calls for diced chives which would be really yummy!
I think I cooked my eggs a little too long because they weren’t really runny. I don’t care, I’ll eat eggs anyway but they are technically supposed to be runny.
I sprinkled the bacon on top and ate up!
They turned out pretty good and were definitely really easy. I love bacon and eggs so they really couldn’t taste bad.
I eat eggs… a lot. Hopefully, all that cholesterol talk is nonsense otherwise I’m in for a treat when I’m older (or now?). They’re just so easy, delicious, and healthy how can you not love them!
How do you feel about eggies? What’s your favorite way to make them?
