Gooseberry Patch’s Quick & Easy Autumn Recipe 1: Simmered Eggs in Tomatoes

Look, seriously, the only way this recipe could be quicker or easier is if someone fed you!  It was delicious!  I have wanted to try something like this for a long time.  I saw a recipe being made once on a cooking show, a Middle Eastern dish, and this is very similar only WAY easier!  And the gluten free version was just as easy – use gluten free bread for your toast!

Simmered Eggs in TomatoesSimmered Eggs in Tomatoes

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 cup stewed tomatoes, cut up (I had some in my freezer from last Summer YAY!)
  • 1 /2 cup onion, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • buttered toast

Heat oil in skillet over low heat.  Place tomatoes and onion in oil.  Cook 5 minutes.  Drop eggs into skillet, one at a time; add salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until eggs are cooked through as desired.  Serve hot on buttered toast.  Makes 2 servings (4 for us).

I have to say again, it is going to be really REALLY difficult to pick the 6 recipes to share.  I have about 3 dozen marked!!  So excited to share this book with you all!  Now leave me a comment and enter to win this great new book from our friends at Gooseberry Patch!

I would love to win this cookbook! GBP’s autumn cookbooks are my favorite!

Excellent review, and those eggs look delicious! I would have never thought to try something like that, but your picture is making me hungry. :-)

That looks positively scrumptious, and ‘easy’ is one of my favorite ingredients in a recipe. Thanks for sharing! :-)

This looks so good!!!! :) Iam up tp 18 Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks!! I love them..nothing better than reading them and having a cup of coffee with a nice smelling candle burning!


Can’t wait to try this recipe! Looks great.

i love your cookbooks. I have several and I use them…I need this one also,

I also saw the Middle Eastern version and wanted to try it, but did not have the ingredients on hand. This one I do and it will be a good way to use up my bread too.


Would love this cook book! (I love anything Autumn!)

I need to feed my addiction to Gooseberry Patch books–pick me, pick me :) .

YUM! I can’t wait to see what else you have to share with us.
Question for you….if you had to pick 1 or 2 of their cookbooks, which would you get? Or better yet, which one would you start with?

WOW Nicole! I don’t know. If it was my first purchase probably the latest holiday book and work backwards. I LOVE their Autumn & Christmas books. But you won’t go wrong with any choice.

After seeing your photos, I was inspired to make this for dinner last night. Everyone from the grownups to the picky kids loved it! SO quick and made from ingredients we ALWAYS have – it’s definitely a dinner winner. Breakfast too! :)

Sweet Mormor

Gosh – this looks delicious – never would have thought of this combination -I am so anxious to prepare this! I need this Autumn cookbook for sure!

Oh my help! That looks sooooo yummy! Thanks for sharing!

Can we just skip all the hot summer stuff and go straight to Autumn?

Love every cook book and own them all in spiral bound. But fall means its time to time to nest and cook.


Can’t wait to try this recipe. I know we’ll love it. I love all the cookbooks but the Autumn ones are my favorite.


Looks wonderful!!! I love the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks, especially the fall ones and would love to add this one to my collection.


I’ve never seen anything like this before. Looks like a good recipe to try.


Looks so good, can’t wait to try this recipe. I love Gooseberry patch cookbooks!


That recipe looks fabulous – what with 9 chickens I’ve always got eggs, the trick is using them in different ways:)


Okay, the only way this could be better is with cheese. Yes, thanks, I’ll have some!

Eggs and tomatoes? I like eggs and salsa, so I can kinda see it … but I think this is one I’d have to try.


This sounds like a great dish any time of year! Can’t wait to get my hands on this book.


Going to try this one out, love all my gooseberry patch cookbooks.


Whoa, this looks awesome. Gonna make this for dinner sometime next week. And would love to win that cookbook!
