I've been working on the set of a cooking show this week - helping to prep dishes to be cooked on camera by some of my school chef instructors. While I'm learning tons about food styling, video production and photography, I'm also learning a lot about food techniques. In one episode about grilling, the chef grills a half pepper with an egg inside - genius! What else could I cook an egg in? When I saw these gorgeous tomatoes at the store, I thought about baking straight up American breakfast inside - scrambled eggs, bread, and sausage with a twist of fresh herbs and cheese. This dish is low in carbs and high in Vitamins A and C.

Ingredients

  • 4 large, firm tomatoes
  • 4-6 eggs, beaten

  2. Cut the tops from the tomatoes and scoop out the insides with a spoon being careful not to break the shell. Turn upside down onto a cookie rack over a pan to drain.
  3. Bring all the other ingredients together. Then place each tomato in a muffin cup and place a bit of each ingredient inside - topping with extra cheese and chives.
