Yum. Yum. Yum again! Breakfast can be boring sometimes. Let's be honest, there are few people in the world who are totally content with their typical eggs and bacon and oatmeal routine. If you're one of those people, that's great! If you're like me, well, keep reading.
This morning I realized that we were nearly out of eggs (we only had 1 left!) so, I went to the store, looking like something a cat had drug in and made my way through the aisles. I love the grocery store. It's full of options and so many possibilities. As I reached into one of the refrigerated shelves to grab the eggs, it dawned on me. I DO NOT WANT EGGS AND BACON THIS MORNING. I knew that's what Matt wanted. I knew i wanted eggs, or egg whites, but I didn't want the norm. So, I went to the store for eggs and left with a half-cart-full of groceries. It always happens that way, doesn't it? Oh well.
What to eat? What to eat? I bought a bunch of tomatoes at the store and I had a great idea! I love poached eggs and i love tomatoes! I combined the two faves and made what I like to call Italian Poached Eggs with Broiled Tomatoes.
Now, I'm sure I'm not the only person who's ever used the two ingredients like this, but I was really excited about it!
So, all that goes to say, it was really stinking tasty and you can find out what you need and how to make it right below...
What you'll need:
Desired amount of eggs
2 Roma tomatoes, sliced about 1/4" thick
1 Tsp. fresh shaved Parmesan cheese
Black pepper to taste
Olive oil to grease pan
1 or 2 Leaves fresh basil (my favorite, as you know, torn
How to make it:
Poach eggs as usual
Preheat oven to broil @ 500*
Place the tomatoes in a single layer on greased baking sheet and sprinkle with cheese and pepper.
Broil until cheese is bubbly and tomatoes begin to look soft (should be about 6-7 minutes)
Remove from oven and serve with eggs on top and top eggs with fresh basil
TaDa! Ultra healthy. Super tasty. Not the norm.
Try it! Hope you enjoy!!!
