Of course, it taste better if you add some extra flavor and toppings and today I am sharing with you my favorite recipe. Egg stuffed tomatoes with spinach, coconut cream, tiny bit of grated cheddar and mashed avocado on top. Well, if you love spicy food like I do add a drizzle of sriracha sauce on top and you just made the BEST savory breakfast ever! This is basically all the 5 ingredients you need to make this simple and delicious egg breakfast recipe. Oh and if you don’t eat dairy you can remove the cheese it will work like magic too!
The trick is to make perfect egg stuffed tomatoes is to cut the top part of the tomato thinly and to dig a hole inside the tomato – removing all the flesh and seeds carefully with a spoon until no more liquid is left. Be careful, don’t dig to hard or you will break the bottom of the tomatoes! Now, you are ready to stuff the tomatoes with the ingredients you like or follow my favorite recipe below – highly recommended of course ahaha!
As my husband and little one don’t enjoy savory breakfast I prepare more tomatoes for them for dinner. It stores very well in the fridge if you make them ahead – even the night before breakfast of course crack the egg only few minutes before baking the tomatoes to avoid the eggs to dry out. When they eat those egg stuffed tomatoes for dinner I cook them in a greased skillet and I serve them with cooked quinoa or millet as a side. For breakfast, this pair well with my green smoothie recipe. Really, if you are always on a rush in the morning but you like to fuel up with an healthy savory breakfast you must try this recipe. And it is low carb too !
Enjoy and bon appetit bien sur ! I baked my tomatoes into this 12.5 inches skillet, I found it bake fester than using a ceramic dish plus it crisp the bottom of the tomato skin, delicious !

Tomatoes: make sure you buy large tomatoes that could fit the size of your egg plus the other ingredients. If the tomatoes are too small the egg white will run over the tomato. In New Zealand I bought size 6 eggs - regular size - and medium tomatoes.
Make ahead: You can also make those tomato ahead. Store them in the fridge overnight and crack your egg in the tomato hole in the morning before baking them.
Baking: I baked my tomatoes into this 12.5 inches skillet
