Eggs in a Tomato


1 large (15 mL) tomato
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Cut off a thick slice, about 1/2-inch (1 cm), at the stem end of the tomato; set slice aside. Scoop out seeds and center pulp. Season with salt and pepper. Place tomato upside down on a paper towel to drain for about 5 minutes. Place tomato upright in a small microwave-safe bowl. Break eggs into tomato. Pierce egg yolks with a fork. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and place top slice over tomato. Microwave on Medium-High (70%) for 3 minutes and 45 seconds or until egg is almost cooked. Let stand 2 minutes.
