Oeufs en tomate

As we get into the middle of Summer, I Know How to Cook has become one of my very favorite cookbooks.  The vegetable and fruit sections are wonderful, providing excellent recipes centered on a specific fruit or vegetable.  I found this delightful recipe for oeufs en tomate (eggs in tomatoes) in the eggs section.  Erik isn't a huge fan of cooked tomatoes, but he said it was the best cooked tomato he has had thus far (hooray!)

Rather cute, no?

We each had one tomato with sauteed spinach and mushrooms.  A really tasty meal!

I found a somewhat similar recipe on Martha if you want to try this out yourself! 


  1. That looks so yummy! I am definitely going to try that sometime!

    Thanks for visiting my blog at mylifetintedpink!


  2. SO yummy, I will definetly try it, kisses

  3. I Know How To Cook has been my bible these last couple weeks - I LOVE it, and this particular recipe is one of the best I've tried. I should make it again now that we have heirlooms in at the Co-op. ^_^

    Glad you and Erik enjoyed it!

  4. Alexis this looks so yummy!! I am not a big hot tomato fan either, not even on pizza, but I think the combination with a nice hot egg sounds like heaven. I am going to give this a try! I was thinking of you today while I was blanching and freezing corn so we would have a little bit of summer in the middle of winter. :) Glad to see you are doing well and looking forward to reading about your adventures in Hawaii!!


Your comments make my day even brighter and happier than it already was. I just love hearing what you have to say!
