Fed & Fit

Baked Tomato & Egg Breakfast

No matter how early I wake up, my mornings always seem rushed. What are my morning non-negotiables? CrossFit (when I’m home), love on Gus, find something not embarrassing to wear (80% success rate), and eat breakfast.

When fixing breakfast, my requirements are … #1 paleo (need to start the day off right), #2 filling, and #3 QUICK. Sounds pretty simple, but when you’re in a rush, it can be a tall order. I have to fight the urge to just defer my breakfast until the Starbuck’s drive through – their Spinach & Feta Egg White Wraps are DELISH.

Because I workout in the mornings, it’s especially important for me to refuel my body properly to insure fast recovery and efficient muscle health.

This baked tomato and egg breakfast is a staple in my house. Don’t be intimidated by the cook time. All you have to do is prep and pop in the oven. Then you’ve got ~30 minutes to shower, feed the fish, and finish cleaning before the house cleaner gets there (guilty).

These little tomato and egg treats are soul and tummy filling. I eat mine along side some fresh crispy bacon and seasonal berries with almond butter.

This one usually takes up most of my morning time. It’s impossible to resist this face …even when he’s filthy.

    How do the yolks turn out with this cook time? Or they hard or runny?

    • fedandfit replied: — February 7th, 2013 @ 9:35 pm

      They’re mostly runny. If you like your eggs hard instead of over easy, add about 5 minutes to the cook time. Hope you enjoy!

    This tasted great! I topped it with a little basil since I’m not a huge parsley fan and it was good! You’re recipes are inspiring and I’m so glad I was recommended to your site. Makes healthy eating more interesting. Thank you!

    Do you leave the lid of the tomato on over egg? In the picture it looks lie it has been cooked.

    • fedandfit replied: — September 19th, 2013 @ 9:52 am

      I did bake the tomato tops in in this picture (good eye), but placed them beside the eggs instead of on top. I baked them more for consistency in texture for my photos. Since then, I usually just throw them away before baking. The eggs cook uncovered in the tomato. Hope that helps!

    Would both tomatoes be one serving? Or is the calorie count just one?

    • fedandfit replied: — December 3rd, 2013 @ 8:36 pm

      Both tomatoes are considered one serving.

    Made the dish this morning – had some trouble with the eggs. After 30 min the egg whites were still super runny. Cooking longer got them more done but then the yolks were completely cooked through, almost like a hard boiled egg. So I have some playing around with this to do to end up with the eggs being cooked right. Nonetheless it was tasty. I put a few spinach leaves and some chicken sausage crumbles in the bottom of the tomato before putting the egg in – not much as the egg wouldn’t fit with more in there but it did give it a good flavor.

    • Cassandra replied: — February 19th, 2014 @ 8:41 pm

      The addition of spinach and sausage sounds great! Cooking the eggs does take some fineness because of the oven variations. Glad you liked it though!

    I came across your page looking for Paleo breakfast ideas. Loved this email, it was surprisingly very filling. Your site looks great and I’m looking forward to trying the paleo chicken “Parmesan” next.
