Stuffed Baked Tomatoes and Eggs with Pancetta 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Plump, juicy tomatoes encase pancetta, soft-cooked egg and basil pesto. Add a salad and home fries and you have a perfect brunch. This may not be as healthy as some of our usual recipes but I loved how it uses up the tomatoes that always seems to ripen at one time in our garden. I always have a bunch of basil ready to be used at this time of year too.


Ingredients:
8 heirloom or vine-ripened tomatoes, (2-1/2 inches/ 6 cm diameter)
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
3 tbsp (45 mL) basil pesto
8 thin slices pancetta, (at least 3 inches/8 cm diameter) or thinly sliced prosciutto
8 small eggs, (at room temperature)
4 tsp (18 mL) butter



Directions:
Grease 8 mini-muffin or shallow muffin cups; place on rimmed baking sheet. Set aside.

Cut off top of each tomato to make 1-1/2-inch (4 cm) wide hole. With spoon, gently scrape out pulp and seeds. Sprinkle insides with salt ; place, cut side down, on paper towel-lined plate. Let stand for 30 minutes.

Place tomatoes, cut side up, in prepared muffin cups to secure (tomatoes do not need to fit inside cups). Using paper towel, lightly blot insides to remove any moisture. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours; bring to room temperature to continue.)

Spoon pesto into tomatoes. Line inside of each with slice of pancetta, pressing down and along side to create hole for egg. Crack egg into each tomato cup; dot with butter. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until whites are set and yolks are still runny, 18 to 22 minutes.

Wellness Tip
Fiber
There are two main types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber has been associated with lowering blood cholesterol. It is found in oat bran, beans and other legumes, psyllium, prunes, apples and pears. Insoluble fiber, found in fruits, vegetables, dried beans, wheat bran, seeds, popcorn, brown rice, and whole grain products, is typical of the course material we think of as roughage. It helps keep the bowels regular and may also help prevent certain types of cancers. Both types of fiber, when taken with plenty of water, aid in weight control and the regulation of blood pressure.

Recipe
Lighter Bran Muffins
Category: Desserts
Description: Compared to the buttery, icing-piped white scones and tartlets in the pastry case, the bran muffin always seems like the obvious choice for the hungry healthy-breakfast browser. The bran adds a good bit of fiber and a little protein, too. But most bakery batters are made fluffy with white flour and sweetened with enough sugar to cover four glazed donuts—a 400-plus-calorie breakfast with more than 70g of carbs, most from refined sources like white flour and brown sugar. And the portion size? These muffins are enormous. Our mission: Bring the bran muffin back into balanced territory with 100% whole grains and no refined sugar—but still keep it moist and packed with flavour.
