Egg and tomato bake - delicious lunch

Tasty, easy, pretty frugal and low-ish in calories.  What more could you ask for.

Ingredients for one
vegetable bits and bobs - the only crucial one is tomatoes - I used a quarter of a red pepper, a largish chestnut mushroom and several squashy tomatoes.  I was out of onions, much to my dismay!
A little bit of oil - I use coconut oil
some seasonings - I use garlic puree, mixed herbs, salt and pepper
one egg

Heat the oil in a pan, add the pepper and mushroom and sizzle until softening.
Then add the tomatoes and seasonings, sizzle and stir for about five mins.

Tip the veg mixture into an suitable oven-proof dish.

Using a spoon, make a 'hole' in the mixture.  Crack an egg into the hols.

Bake in an halogen oven for about eight mins on 180.  I guess an oven would be about the same up would cost more and take longer because of the heating up period.

Eat and enjoy!


  1. OO and grated cheese on the top

  2. I love recipes like these. A good meaty version is to take those last two rashers of bacon and snip it up small. Next you need one of those rare creatures, a leftover raw sausage. Take the skin of the sausage, in a dish squish it up mixing in the bacon. Do all of the above but crumble in little bits of meaty goodness to the frying pan before the oven bit. It works with a tin of tuna too!
