  • Hahahaha!! Dude, I’m sure that this recipe is delicious, but… how the hell did you think that this is “Italian breakfast”?!?!?!?!?!?! WHO TOLD YOU?!? If somebody told you that, he was lying to you, or teasing you, be sure, believe me.
    No one Italian would eat something like that for breakfast! The Italian breakfast is always based ONLY on sweet stuff (cappuccino, croissant, biscuits, cookies, marmalade, jam, confiture, and so on).
    To be honest, anyway, the recipe in itself is absolutely not Italian: it’s something totally unknown in Italy, nobody do it.
    But it’s a great idea, it must be delicious, I’ll try it. Of course at lunch or dinner, for sure not breakfast!!
    Thanks 😉

  • Lidia Omg I made these and added pesto to my crouton I made… and put little bread crumbs on top with Parmesan cheese,,,, They came out Soooooooo Good Thanks a Bunch,,, I love love your Cooking Happy Valentine Day����

  • I made this before just like she did but had done it not really knowing what it was I just sort of threw something random together. But now all this needs is mozzarella.

  • What a FANTASTIC receipe!! One could even add a slice of ham, & I’m thinking of adding it to either the top or under the egg, OH!! W. O. W, SO GREAT for either under or on the top of the egg or even under the tomato. Either way, what a GREAT idea!!!

  • Slm Alia,
    Connais-tu les paniers de tomates au thon? Certes pas pour le petit déj…

  • Hi I, also love Lydia. So hello there, not certain if anyone has asked you this yet, but I apologise in case you’ve answered it already…..
    What type of grated cheese did you use when assembling the last part of recipe?? I am guessing grated Parmesan!??
    Thanks again get a lot from your videos!! Xxxxx

  • Where did you learn this was an italian breakfast?? This is not an italian recipe, we don’t stuff tomatoes like that, and it’s even more distant than what actual italian breakfast is like. Most of us don’t even eat salty stuff for breakfast but cereals, croissants, milk and things like that, let alone tomatoes in the morning

  • Alia! Nicely done again. Eggceptional recipe. Really eggcellent. Great idea for brunch. Please keep sharing these delicious video’s. Blessings ChefMike

  • Yummmmmmyyyy i get off work in a few minutes, i”m going to make this delicious recipe for breakfast yiiiiyyyy i can’t wait to try it�������� thank u @cookingwithalia

  • Barnali, your Egg stuffed tomato looks wonderful!  I love the picture of the finished dish.  Have a beautiful day.  I love you, -Betty:)

  • Hey Alia i like this idea,i was trying to stop eating the cereal and bread in the breakfast and i think this is a good food and it ll full me all the morning, please visit my channel i m also from Morocco xoxo

  • Just cut the tomatoe in 3 equal circles and pour the scramble egg in the holes… Fry them in a frying pan, quicker and ready in no time…

  • I just made this for dinner for my family of four and everyone really enjoyed it! It’s definitely going into my easy dinner repertoire, Thanks, Carla!

  • This looks amazing! Unfortunately, I don’t have access to an oven. I only have a microwave with rice, toast, gratin, and pizza options, a gas stove, a rice cooker, and a fish oven of sorts. The fish oven only cooked the top of it, and then burned it. Is there an alternative way to cook this?

  • just tried this one, added a bit mozzarella on the top of the egg. aesthetically pleasing after removing from the oven. The taste is ok, not amazing though. maybe more pepper and salt next time.

  • I tried this, seemed amazing… unfortunately the tomato was too juicy and it turned into a slopfest. It was just a tomato-liquid egg mixture with chunks… disgusting. Maybe you have to use a specific type of tomato?

  • Super cool accent there and nice recipe. But 25 minutes in the oven.. seems a big drain on electricity for what is actually easier with the old fashioned frying pan. But then, full marks for creativity.

  • Looks so delicious!!! I bought a big bag of large tomatoes for 2 dollars…what a deal! I was wondering what to make with them, now I know. Thank you!

  • I have no idea why but I for some reason I’m allergic to scrambled eggs but not when there cooked any other way. It might be the combination of milk and egg but I can have them separately and in other foods like cake for eg..

  • This is NOT an italian recipe. We stuff zucchini or eggplants but no tomatoes and we stuff them with rice or bread crumb and just a little bit of egg. And we DON’T eat stuffed vegetables for breakfast.

  • Thank you mom; you gave me an idea; i mixed two of your pasta recipe together! i use all my bread crumbs; oil, garlic, a little wine, basil, oil. This was exactly the taste i am looking for! How i missed Shakeys pizza, Phillipines before!

  • Can’t wait to try. Might have to wait until cherry tomatoes taste good. I bought some the other day and they were not tasty. Does anyone know the season for cherry tomatoes? Northwest Florida. Thanks 😉

  • I love Lidia’s voice. Especially when she softly says “uhhkay” as she is assembling something and she likes how it’s turning out. And the stories about the fat chickens who peck the grasshoppers!

  • Im from Bulgaria and we make also stuffed tomatos, peppers and eggplants, but only with mint meet etc. But this stuffed tomatos look mmm…

  • Oooo Alia! This recipe looks delicious! So elegant I can’t wait til its time to harvest my garden tomatoes���� my family will love this �� merci

  • So sweet, n warm persona. Love Lidia and her cooking. I hope her family and her friends and their families whereever they are is safe and sound. God bless!!

  • I added a white onion to the garlic oil before adding the tomatoes and I don’t see a way of not doing that in the future. It was so deliciously sweet with an added texture.

  • Thank you for your nice recipe. From the time I was in Egypt I fallow you. Especially in this time so sad, I have my father in nursing home, he’s 91 and I miss him. I enjoy every recipe. Thank you

  • looks good. one critique tho. u told us what spice u were using, but failed to mention the type of cheese. grated cheese can be a multitude of cheeses. i know i can use whatever, but ur the chef. this is ur recipe. looks like feta, but i dont know. what is it?

  • My Irish mother made this dish whenever she thought I was in need of comfort, so it brings back great memories. It’s not fancy, but made from your own tomatoes, your chicken eggs from your backyard, bread you baked yourself, it transforms into something so delicious and satisfying. Thank you; I have not made this in years, but I have 3 beefsteak tomatoes ripening on the vine, so I’ll cook this tonight for my daughter, in memory of my mother who passed away long ago.

  • Lidia DID NOT just call herself “A GREAT CHEF?” Lord have Mercy.. she is what happens when you start believing your food reviews on Yelp!!!!! not even a passable home cook… i wouldnt hire her to be a ticket taking Lunch Lady at an elementary school!!!!!

  • take those GD Bracelets off!! they are Salmonella Factories!!!!!you;re going to poison someone one of these days!!! My Chef wouldnt have allowed me to wear those.. i had 3 choices.. leave them at home.. leave them in your locker.. go home.. IF you thought you;d bluff him and say.. ill go home.. he punched your time card.. handed you some potwasher gloves and you washed pots for 3 days….!!!!

  • I have learned so much from you. I love going through your books and getting inspired, I think I have them all. Your recipes never disappoint! So many recipes, so little time. Looking forward to your new season, I never miss a show! Thanks Lidia

  • This is a wonderful recipe. If it is not the peak of the season, and your tomatoes are not as large and beautiful as the ones in the video, you may not be able to bake an egg on top because there isn’t enough space. I find that just scrambling the egg and pouring it into the top of the crouton mixture gives me a similar result, even if it lacks the visual appeal of the soft yolk. After having the whole eggs slide off of the tomatoes and stick to the serving dish, I am quite happy with this compromise.and it lets me make this dish in months other than August and September.

  • That yolk looked weird. We should limit animal farmers to the amount of animals they are allowed to keep so that they can take care of them and do not become animal hoarders who do not take care of their animals or treat them good.

  • Slm Alia,
    Connais-tu les paniers de tomates au thon? Certes pas pour le petit déj…

  • I saw a couple of Indian’s doing this recipe out in their fields and with a tandoor oven. I am so very glad to see it here and learn the recipe for using a standard oven. It is amazing as to how variations can be made with items as cheeses, onions or turmeric and chili peppers. Thanks for sharing as I really wanted to know the right temp and bake time. I’ll have to try this out soon.

  • i feel like a lot of weed is consumed by the professionals in this series.
    ETA: confirmed. listen to what the dude says in the last second of this vid.

  • Is the name of the dish an attempt to make “Shakshuka” more attractive to English speakers? Hint: it helps to think of English as ALL borrowed words….

  • We’ve got ghaey, purgatory, like like like like ya know like, nonsense speech, a lack of definition in directions, uhhh… like like like uhhh…blooming and like….meaningless commentary.

    Cooking shows used to be interesting, informative, an experience,…adult.

    Now there are 35 year old children speaking like 20 year-old children.

    You’ve all been talked to/ treated like children.

  • You know something I can’t stand in cooking videos. When they go “Which is around about 2 and a half cups”, with a wavey hand gesture meaning “Use your own initiative, it’s something like that”. If I wanted to use my own initiative I wouldn’t be Googleing how to do this, would I?

  • It’s interesting that in my neck of the woods fried bread is basically a Johnny cake (cornbread) cooked in the pan with oil and butter.

  • Hola sra saludos desde mi México,,,,ya había hecho estos tomates rellenos y horneados,son muy deliciosos.solo que los corazones de los jitomates yo los licue y quedó mejor!!!?

  • This looks do delicious. Although I don’t really like runny yolks. What would someone recommend to do to get the egg yolks cooked in this?

  • I tried this. But my eggs didn’t cook. They remained runny. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, it doesn’t make sense to me when the tomato cooks but the egg doesnt:(

  • Did that egg look on the medium side? Because the whole I was thinking I wouldn’t care for this dish. I hate poached eggs because they’re runny and I can’t stand any kind of runny egg. But if the dish is still good with a medium cooked egg, I could definitely go for that.

  • See I really don’t think it is hot in Purgatory, it is just boring, like high school….and I don’t think the souls get released to Heaven….they get judged….

  • So I made this is morning! One suggestion if you add everything but the bagel seasoning on top and sirarcha it changes the game:)

  • I love BA. I am eternally frustrated that the link to the recipe is often not the recipe made. The link has a very different ingredient list.

  • i prepped off of the recipe and then watched this video and now i have a bowl full of chopped shallots and nothing for them to go in.

  • Nice! I also like ”Eggy in the basket’. Get a slice of bread, make a hole in the centre, big enough for the egg to stay in there. Then put the slice in a pan and crack an egg (with one hand of course) in the hole and bake till done. You’ll have a crispy bread with an egg in the centre.:D

  • Hi alia, thank you so much for sharing great recipes, I just recently found your channel and i love all the videos. I just got married and I always worry about what to cook since my husband is from morocco. But I am not worry anymore since I found your channel. May Allah bless u x..

  • There’s a traditional Greek version of this =)) at least my family does this at least 5 generations back. It’s not hot, no chilis in. It has garlic, green bell pepper and a lot of basil =)))))

  • I tried it and I was hooked. So simple, yet so flavorful. The zest of lemon on top of the fried toasts is the perfect ending touch to it all. Must try it! ����

  • I was born and raised in Calabria, my purgatorio eggs always had onions (and fried tomatoes ofc) in them, and they mostly were unrolled thin omelettes (which we still call frittata though for you guys a frittata seems to be a weird tall egg cake)
