Stuffed Baked Tomatoes and Eggs with Pancetta 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Plump, juicy tomatoes encase pancetta, soft-cooked egg and basil pesto. Add a salad and home fries and you have a perfect brunch. This may not be as healthy as some of our usual recipes but I loved how it uses up the tomatoes that always seems to ripen at one time in our garden. I always have a bunch of basil ready to be used at this time of year too.


Ingredients:
8 heirloom or vine-ripened tomatoes, (2-1/2 inches/ 6 cm diameter)
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
3 tbsp (45 mL) basil pesto
8 thin slices pancetta, (at least 3 inches/8 cm diameter) or thinly sliced prosciutto
8 small eggs, (at room temperature)
4 tsp (18 mL) butter



Directions:
Grease 8 mini-muffin or shallow muffin cups; place on rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.

Cut off top of each tomato to make 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) wide hole. With spoon, gently scrape out pulp and seeds. Sprinkle insides with salt ; place, cut side down, on paper towel-lined plate. Let stand for 30 minutes.

Place tomatoes, cut side up, in prepared muffin cups to secure (tomatoes do not need to fit inside cups). Using paper towel, lightly blot insides to remove any moisture. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours; bring to room temperature to continue.)

Spoon pesto into tomatoes. Line inside of each with slice of pancetta, pressing down and along side to create hole for egg. Crack egg into each tomato cup; dot with butter. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until whites are set and yolks are still runny, 18 to 22 minutes.

Wellness Tip
Scheduling Exercise into Your Day
Getting enough exercise isn't always easy. It can be difficult to budget enough time into busy schedules. Some people make time by rising earlier in the morning, but that doesn't work for everyone. Others fit in a walk during a scheduled break in the day, for example, during a portion of the lunch hour. Stopping at a club, park or mall on the way home is another option that works for some people. Keep searching until you find one or more that work for you.

Always add and mix the protein last.

The Health Benefits of Protein is that it is an important nutrient needed by everyone on a daily basis. Protein is made up of essential and non-essential amino acids, which are the "building blocks" for healthy bodies. Protein has a number of different roles in the body including the following: Repair body cells, Build and repair muscles and bones, Provide a source of energy and Control many of the important processes in the body related to metabolism.
The body is able to make non-essential amino acids from other amino acids in the body. However, the body is not able to make essential amino acids and the only way to get them is by eating high quality protein foods. Protein sources that contain all of the essential amino acids are called complete proteins.
