Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Slice the top quarter off of each tomato. Using a paring knife or spoon, carefully core the tomato. Transfer to a 2-inch deep baking pan lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, and some chopped garlic. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tomatoes have broken down slightly.
  3. Remove the pan from the oven and carefully crack an egg into each tomato. The egg whites will dribble out. Return to the oven and cook for another 6 to 8 minutes or until the yolks have just set (cook until completely hard if on low microbial or neutropenic diet). Top with some Parmesan cheese and return to the oven for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Serve warm or at room temperature with fresh basil.
