This recipe is amazing when the egg yolks get poached whole in the tomatoes. To do this, just make sure the pan you're cooking the tomatoes in is deep enough for the eggs to be totally covered. ...

Simple and delicious way to serve eggs. I added green onion and garnished with feta. I'd reduce the cooking time on the eggs to 8 minutes or so. Thanks to Crystal:)

We call this dish menamen in Lebanon and this recipe is perfect replica of it!!

OK so I didn't follow the recipe exactly but it turned out great! We didn't have pitas so we used tortillas and I added a layer of hashbrowns. This was great! I'm going to have to try folling th...
