Scrambled Eggs with Tomatoes fascinates me, is a very popular dish in the Chilean countryside. Traditional in summer evenings always made with ripe tomatoes. When I was in Chile, last March, we ate a big skillet made with tomatoes and free-range eggs and pan amasado (Chilean Country Bread), pure bliss.
I don’t recommend doing this in winter when the tomatoes are not in season. And follow the instruction, because is very important to let the juices evaporated before adding the eggs, otherwise, the texture gets all wrong: soupy.
In Chile, this can be an everyday dinner. Love by all and serve with homemade bread or bread from the bakery.Print

Thank you for the tomato and eggs recipe. Being vegan we substituted the eggs with Just Eggs. I wanted my wife to try a traditional Chilean breakfast and she loved it. It reminds me of the fond memories having breakfast with family in Chile.
I’m so glad you both enjoyed it. Just eggs are great, good tip. Thank you for sharing.
