Uova al tegamino con pomodori! (Or, fried eggs with tomatoes!)

Growing up, tomatoes have been a staple part of my diet; on my mum's side sits a big Italian family so my love for food has never (and should never) be questioned. This recipe is very easy and I have avoided a step-by-step guide due to the fact it doesn't take a tremendous amount of concentration to recreate! Put simply, all the ingredients cook from one pan and, if you're feeling super lazy, you could even eat it from the same pan. However, this is a perfect dish to share between two, but for the Joey's out there, it's perfectly normal to make this just for yourself. I stumbled across this recipe whilst browsing the Londoner's blog which is a favourite of mine - Millie Mackintosh is a fan also!

This has been made using a Le Creuset pan which cooks food more effectively!

You will need (feeds 2 to 3, depending on how hungry you are!)
  • 2x can of tinned tomatoes - (Napolina and Cirio are always in our cupboards)
  • 4x strips of bacon
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and chilli flakes (to season)
  • 4x medium eggs 
  • Ciabatta bread 


  1. In a pan, fry some bacon with olive oil - fry until cooked
  2. Add the tinned tomatoes to the same pan and simmer slowly for about 5 minutes
  3. Add the four eggs 
  4. Place a lid over the entire pan leaving no gaps for air to escape
  5. Keep checking until the eggs are cooked (until the yolk has turned white)
  6. Turn off the heat, leave to simmer for about 2 minutes
  7. Sprinkle chilli flakes and salt to season

Ciabatta bread is perfect for dipping! Enjoy!
This is a perfect meal for those who attempt to spend little on their food shop i.e. uni students!
