Baked Eggs in Tomato Cups - Simple, healthy and flavorful breakfast, brunch (even dinner!) recipe with eggs baked inside perfectly seasoned tomato cups.

Eggs!! It’s what’s for dinner!

Hi, you guuuuuuys! Happy Easter!! To those observing this Holy Day, Christ Is Risen!

Tell me; did you go to Church today? Or, perhaps an egg-hunt? Are you brunching right now? Are you about to? I’m very nosy.

Know what my weekend is really like? Yesterday, I woke up with the sharpest pain in my lower back, kind of like that pain you have before going into labor! Ugh! I could barely walk.
And no, I’m not in labor. Not even pregnant. But who knows!? Maybe I am. And I’ll end up on that show, “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant”.
… is that show for reals?!

Anyhew. If you have ANY home remedies for crappy lower back pain, please do tell! Aleve is helping, but I hate pills.

Also? Do you have a few minutes? And some tomatoes and eggs? Of course you have eggs – it’s Easter!

Speaking of eggs and tomatoes. Have you noticed how the fewer ingredients a recipe has, the prettier it is? Simplicity always wins.

We ate these last week, way before the weekend even started. Not fair at all. We ate them 3 days in a row, which is kinda what happens every time I make them. If my back didn’t spaz out, I’d be in the kitchen right now making another batch.

For this simple baked eggs dish, I emptied out my wallet on a few tomatoes on the vine (why are they so expensive?!), but because eggs were cheap, it all worked out. However, when I realized that I was going to scoop out most of the tomatoes’ flesh, I quickly remembered their ugly price and saved their meaty flesh for another use. IF you join me tomorrow, you’ll see how I used them up in a chicken dish with olives.

I must tell you though that this SO would not be breakfast in my house. Maybe like, once in a blue moon. It just seems much more like a dinner-side-dish to me. Perhaps it’s because I grew up in a house that was raving MAD every morning before school. You were lucky to grab an apple. Or a granola bar, on a good day.

So the deal is – I’m not usually the one to have a super fancy breakfast, but if YOU are, please add these Baked Eggs in Tomato Cups to your breakfast menu. You will love ’em! Don’t forget, they work for dinner, too.

ENJOY!

    Making these right now hope they come out of the tin okay. My mom gave me a huge bag from her garden last night and need to use them before they rot. Gonna make tuna salad in tomato cups for lunch. Oh and stew the tomato that I scooped out for dinner tonight.

    This may come a tad to late (like months!) but have you ever tried yoga for your back pain? Yoga has helped me more than any medication. I have a spinal injury and fibromyalgia and yoga has been my best friend. Thought you may want to try it. There are some really great YouTube videos out there and you don’t have to do any crazy pose, just certain stretching poses and deep breathing.

    1. Hi Amy!! Thank you very much for letting me know! I actually switched to a different ad provider because the promise was that they would show less ads, but clearly that is not happening. 🙁 I am so, so sorry!! I promise, I am trying to do my best not to have that many ads, and will work with the providers to make sure that we slow it down. Again, thank you and I’m very sorry!

  3. These are gorgeous! I love tomatoes, and I’ll definitely be trying these out soon! Lower back pain is the worst — feel better soon. 🙂

  4. These look delicious! What a perfect, easy breakfast. Sorry to hear about your back :(. I don’t have any home remedies for it, sadly. My husband has lower back issues sometimes — so bad that he can’t stand up straight — muscle relaxants seem to help a bit, sometimes :(. I hope you feel better soon!
