How to make
There are a variety of ways to customize the egg tomato bowl.
Tomato: Try different types of tomatoes, but make sure to choose a one of the larger varieties, such as green beefsteak, heirloom, brandywine, or cherokee purple.
Vegetables: Experiment by adding different vegetables: green onions, mushrooms, peppers, potatoes, and broccoli florets are all great options that can radically change the flavor. Just make sure to dice them really small to fit inside the tomato bowl.
Beans: Try adding black or pinto beans to the bowl for a boost of protein and vitamins.
