Baked Eggs in Tomato

After a lot of thought about this month's challenge.......I settled on this recipe for baked eggs in tomato shells.  It is easy, straight forward, a little bit fun and kid friendly too.
Renata of Testado, Provado & Aprovado! was our Daring Cooks’ April 2011 hostess. Renata challenged us to think “outside the plate” and create our own edible containers! Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 17th to May 16th at!

Baked Eggs in Tomatoes
4 large eggs
4 medium tomatoes
1/4 cup grated cheese
2 Tbsp crumbled bacon
pinch of parsley
pinch of salt and pepper

Slice the tops off of the tomatoes and scoop out and discard the insides.  Divide the grated cheese and bacon between each tomato and sprinkle inside.  Crack an egg into each tomato and top with parsley and salt and pepper.  Set in a shallow pan and bake at 425F for 20-35 minutes depending on how set you want the yolk to be.

Yes it is important to be kid friendly and I have to say that baked eggs in tomatoes is one of my favourites well done I like the photo of the cut egg/tomato container.
