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!

    ‘What a fabulous idea! I haven’t ever even considered putting an egg inside a hollowed-out tomato, but now that I see what it looks like, I’d absolutely love this dish.

    I seriously love eggs and tomato together – I’ll have to keep this in mind when I do Whole30 (just without the cheese).

    This is the PERFECT brunch dish – I want to make it all summer long with every single ripe, juicy tomato I can get my hands on. Yummy.

  4. These are gorgeous! I love tomatoes, and I’ll definitely be trying these out soon! Lower back pain is the worst — feel better soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!
