Baked Eggs, Ham, Asparagus in Tomato Cups

Picture of Baked Eggs, Ham, Asparagus in Tomato Cups

1 large tomato
1 large egg
2 T diced ham (cubes should be about 1/4" in size)
2 T chopped asparagus (also 1/4" in size)
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
Cooking spray

Note: This recipe is also great with mushrooms, cheese, peppers, and anything else you can think of that will taste good with a tomato and egg.

Step 1: Preheat Oven & Prepare Tomatoes

Preheat oven to 425°. Lightly coat the bottom of a small baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Cut off the top of the tomato and gently scoop out the flesh and seeds. Sprinkle the inside of the tomato cup with a small pinch of salt.

yummm! I gotta try this. I don't know how I wound up here, but I'm glad I did!

Thanks for sharing! :))

This look awesome!
The temperature is in Celsius or in Fahrenheit?
425 C would be 797 F. . . . unless your oven doubles as a kiln it would have to be F. lol
425 degrees Fahrenheit
or approximately 218 degrees Celsius

Just made this with peppers stuffed with egg whites corn and salami ( fridge cleaning) was very yumy except the peppers fell over. Any suggestions? I had the eggs cooked on the baking pan instead of inside the pepper

Oh, I want that in muh belly!

I've been thinking about getting some seeds for those weird, nearly hollow stuffing tomatoes; this instructable makes it an easy decision.

425°! I'm so sorry, I should have also placed the temperature on this section.

I've done the same thing with oranges and bacon (no asparagus) in a campfire while out backpacking! Turned out wonderful and made for a easy meal as well :)
I will try it!

Wow, that looks so good. I don't even like eggs but I want to eat that. Gonna make some right now with red pepper, mushrooms and turkey (it's what I got in the fridge). I'll bet you could put all sorts of things in them, just a matter of tastes.
Ok, You win!
I will try it! (=
