Caprese Skillet Eggs

Reader Maryanne Welton, of Palo Alto, California, makes this breakfast dish at the end of summer when her garden produces a bounty of tomatoes. (Maryanne was a finalist in Sunset's One-Block Party contest, growing nearly every ingredient for a block party during the summer of 2011; visit oneblockdiet.com to find out more.)

  • Yield: Serves 4
  • Total: 25 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup mixed chopped fresh basil, oregano, and chives
  • Toasted sliced pane pugliese or ciabatta bread

Preparation

1. Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes have softened and released their juices, about 5 minutes.

2. Use a spoon to make 4 wells in the tomato mixture and crack an egg into each. Cover pan and cook until whites are firm and yolks are just starting to set, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and cover again to melt cheese slightly, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with herbs and serve with toast.
