Baked Tomato Nests

Print this Recipe
Serves: 4
4 large ripe tomatoes
salt and pepper
4 large eggs
4 tbsp double cream
4 tbsp grated mature Mahon, Manchego or Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 180ºC / 350ºF. Cut a slice off the tops of the tomatoes and, using a teaspoon, carefully scoop out the pulp and seeds without piercing the shells. Turn the tomato shells upside down on kitchen paper and drain for 15 minutes. Season the insides of the shells with salt and pepper.

Place the tomatoes in an oven proof dish just large enough to hold them in a single layer. Carefully break 1 egg into each tomato shell, then top with 1 tablespoon of cream and 1 tablespoon of grated cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are just set. Serve hot.
