25 Minute Tomato Egg Recipe

tomatoegg pinit

This 25 minute tomato egg recipe is an excellent way to beat the humdrum traditional breakfast of eggs and toast. I often make it up on weekends and the family just loves it. As the name suggests, the recipe originally came from China. So many of the ingredients suggest Chinese food, which makes it even more appealing.

The great thing is it’s so simple to make. Most of the ingredients you will already have in your pantry. It’s simply a matter of collecting them up, organizing them, and cooking. In 25 minutes breakfast is on the table.

Believe me, you family will love it.

I remember getting up on a Saturday morning and thinking "I'm so tired of toast and eggs. I really want something different." Then, the idea came to mind of tomato eggs. I guess I had read the recipe somewhere in a magazine. I tried it and it instantly became part of my breakfast recipe.

  1. Pour the oil into a pan over medium high heat. Add in the onion, garlic, and ginger. Stir and saute for about 2 minutes until fragrant.

  2. Put the tomatoes in followed by the salt, white pepper, sesame oil, oyster sauce, and water. Cook and stir for about 2 or 3 minutes until the tomatoes begin to soften. Gently press down on the tomatoes while cooking. 

  3. In a small bowl, combine the corn starch and 2 tbsp of water. Mix until well combined. Add it to the tomatoes, stir, and allow it to thicken.

  4. Add the beaten eggs and green onions in but do not stir. Just allow the eggs to set. 

  5. After two minutes or so and the eggs have begun to set, push them around so they combine. 

  6. Serve with the rice of your choice and enjoy your tomato eggs.
