Slumbering VolcanoesFrom STONEWALL JACKSON INN BED AND BREAKFAST
4 large tomatoes
4 canned artichoke hearts
4 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
4 Tablespoons breadcrumbs seasoned with:
1 teaspoon dill
1/2 teaspoon garlic
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Carefully scoop out insides of tomatoes and drain juices from the shells. Place tomatoes, hole side up, in baking dish and put in oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
Mix together Parmesan, breadcrumbs, dill, garlic, and onion powder. Remove tomato shells from oven. Into the center of each put one whole or 1/2 artichoke heart. Break one large egg over each artichoke heart and then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of Parmesan and seasoned breadcrumb mix.
Place "volcanoes" back into oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes. (Time depends on how you prefer eggs cooked... if you want hard yolks, bake for 1/2 hour.) Serve hot with side condiments of sour cream, chopped chives, green chili salsa, or others of your imagination!
