  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 oz mozzarella grated
  • 2 oz cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 tablespoon chives chopped
  • 1 tablespoon parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon basil chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
  • Cut the top off the tomato (like a lid) and set aside. Scoop out the seeds and tomato pulp with a spoon.
  • Place the chopped basil in the bottom of the hollowed tomatoes.
  • Add the mozzarella cheese.
  • Carefully break the egg and pour into the tomato.
  • Season with the salt and pepper, sprinkle with the parsley and chives.
  • Scatter the cheddar cheese on top.
  • Place the slice tomato lids in a baking dish. They will act like a stand for the stuffed tomato.
  • Place the stuffed tomatoes on top of the sliced top and baked for 25 minutes.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.
