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.

Are You Doing TOO Much for Your Children?
I used to feel a little inadequate and guilty because baking goodies for the kids and keeping their rooms neat and tidy wasn’t what turned me on. I felt I should want to do more for my children, even if it wasn’t what I wanted to do – and on top of that, I should enjoy it!...
