Stuffed Tomatoes

Today it's all about Mare's lunch! I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of this one. Today was one of those days when you don't feel like you have anything in the house to eat. Today is the day before our grocery trip. I especially am feeling it because I don't eat cereal and toast 24/7 like my hubby and my kids do. I choose to eat on the cleaner side. This is what I came up with for lunch:

1 egg white
1 whole egg
1 med. tomato cut in half and gutted
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400. Beat egg white and egg season with salt and pepper, a little Italian seasoning might be good too. Here is a little trick I learned after a bit of a mess, cut the underside of the tomato so it has a 'foot' and it is more stable. This will keep your egg from spilling out. You can salt and pepper your tomato halves before you add the egg. Pour half the egg mixture into each tomato. Bake for 30 minutes. I sprinkled a touch of Parmesan when they were done. Perfection!

*I have to be honest I tried to bake it at 350 for 30 minutes but the egg was still runny so then I turned it up to 400 and left it in for another 15 mins. Just check your eggs to make sure they are cooked to your liking, maybe start at 25 mins then check them. Let me know what works best.
