Baked Tomato Egg Breakfast

No matter how early I wake up, my mornings always seem rushed, but this baked tomato egg breakfast has been a game changer for me in the morning routine department!

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.  But you know what's even better than Starbucks?  This little baked tomato egg breakfast concoctions, that's what!

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

This baked tomato 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.  If you're looking for another crowd pleasing stuffed tomato recipe, look no further than these BBQ ranch stuffed tomatoes that are perfect for a dinner option!

Enjoy!

This one usually takes up most of my morning time. It's impossible to resist this face …even when he's filthy.  He absolutely has me wrapped around his little finger, but let me ask you this – can you blame me!?  Life with a giant puppy has been interesting to say the least, but I wouldn't trade this little guy for the world!

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

    1. fedandfit says:

      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 was delicious!!! Thank you!!

  6. Ashton says:

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

    1. fedandfit says:

      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!

    1. fedandfit says:

      Hi Jackie! I’m so happy that you’ve found me. Thanks for your vote for the creamy kale soup …I’ll put it in the lineup!

  13. Nicole says:

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

    1. fedandfit says:

      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.

    1. Cassandra says:

      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!
