mmm I don't think I've ever met an egg I didn't like. My little brain is already spinning with ideas. I've baked eggs in crusty little sourdough roles before but never in a tomato. This sounds delish!

I've never baked a cracked open egg in the oven. My mind is spinning, too.

Kades, maybe I'm reading it wrong...
25 minutes total at 400 degrees following introduction of an egg. Seems like a long time, but worth trying for a "hard-baked egg with cheese topping."

Here's the recipe I used to bake them in little bread bowls. The temp was a bit lower but the time for both is about the same. The eggs were done perfectly with creamy yolks and firm whites.

Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls
Adapted from Noble Pig, who was inspired by All You

crusty dinner rolls, as many as you want
large eggs – one for each roll
chopped fresh basil, parsley, chives, tarragon – anything you like
cream
salt and pepper
grated Parmesan cheese or gruyère , or anything sharp (old cheddar, Gouda, Asiago…)

Preheat the oven to 350F. Slice the top off of each roll and remove the bread inside, leaving just the crusty shell (don’t make it too thin-leave some bread in there for insurance against leaking). Place them on a baking sheet and crack an egg into each roll.

Top each egg with some herbs, salt and pepper and about a teaspoon of cream. Sprinkle with Parmesan or other cheese.

Bake for about 20 minutes, until eggs are set and bread is toasted. If you like, brush the tops of the buns with a little butter or oil and add them to the sheet about halfway through, to toast them as well.

Thanks for sharing this look great. I'm a bog bread lover and think this would be great. Will be making someday next week after I come home from diaylisis.

Wow, Kades. You sure do fancy! That sounds soooo nice.

What do you do with the tomato "guts"?

You can lessen the temp or time on this one, it deprnds on how you like your eggs, and you need to watch the cheese to make sure it melts on top. i think any cheese you really like and that melts easily will be great. Let me know how it turns out for you.

Dang! How many people do you usually cook for?

Cooking for myself, I just don't go there, but you, Kades, make me drool (slobber).

Iusually cook for all the kids and grand kids on the weekends and 4-5 of them during the week. The tomatoes I make roasted I put in containers freeze and pull them out when the mood strikes. Husband has been having to help me after my stroke but things are looking up and I'm better every day. I bet it's a pain cooking for 1 I know at times It's so hard to make something just for one but I'm getting the hang of for 2

Sounds wonderful, I love tomatoes and eggs. Usually salsa and eggs, but this sounds fun.

I have some Campari tomatoes I need to use up...a tomato quiche would be nice!

Oh that sounds good too! Thanks, Kades! I'll make a little one...just for me. Shrek doesn't like cooked tomatoes...he's weird!

I recently came across a similar recipe at my Danish cooking site: Bagte tomater med æg med billede fra Alletiders Kogebog

In that recipe you chop up a bunch of fresh herbs, some garlic, the tomato innards, and put it at the bottom of the baking dish. Then put the tomato with the egg on top of the innards mixture, and bake.

It's surprisingly close to your recipe, though no cheese.

If you want any help with the translation, let me know. I just checked the result from Google translate. I think it mostly makes sense. It translates the tomato innards as "giblets"

The only thing it got really wrong: "serve with toasted bread" translated to "serve with roasted beans".
