  • 5 Eggs

Step 1
In medium bowl, beat eggs with 1/4 teaspoon salt and dash of pepper. Set aside.
Step 2
Cook tomatoes
In skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil on high. Add tomatoes and green onions and cook until onions and tomatoes are soft. Add the sauce mixture from step 1 above and cook for about 1 minute. Remove from pan and set aside.
Step 3
Heat Skillet
Clean the skillet and add remaining 2 tablespoons of oil. Heat on medium high.
Step 4
Cook Eggs
Add eggs and cook until eggs are almost cooked. They should still be a little runny, but mostly firm.
Step 5
Add back Tomatoes
Add back the tomato mixture and cook for another minute or so or until the eggs are fully cooked and tomato sauce is mixed in. Remove from heat and serve.

My mother-in-law makes this whenever tomatoes are in season. And, that’s exactly why I made it. I had two separate friends give me tomatoes and I wound up several dozen tomatoes. I wasn’t in the mood to make spaghetti sauce (besides, the tomatoes I had weren’t the best sauce tomatoes), but I did think of my mother-in-law and decided to make a Chinese dinner night. So, I made this dish and two others which will soon be published: Chinese Chicken with Tomatoes, and Chinese Beef Patties.

So serve this at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Your choice. Enjoy!
