In a bowl, mix together two eggs, two tablespoons of light cottage cheese, one slice of diced turkey bacon, half a cup of chopped baby spinach, and sea salt & freshly ground pepper to taste. Set aside.


Take two tomatoes and cut a circle around the top stems.


Using a spoon, scoop out the top and continue scooping out the inside of the tomatoes until you are left with tomato "bowls".


Fill tomato bowls with the egg mixture. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes at 425°F.
