This beautiful mix of fried eggs, cheese, and heirloom tomatoes is one of Kevin Sharkey's favorite breakfasts. Serve it with toast.


  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter

  • 3 large eggs

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • ½ cup mixed heirloom tomatoes, sliced

  • ¼ cup sliced or finely grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese (1 ounce)


  1. Heat broiler. Melt butter in an 8-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until foamy. Crack eggs into skillet, and cook until whites are almost set, about 1 1/2 minutes.

  2. Remove from heat. Season eggs with salt and pepper, and top with tomatoes, then cheese. Broil until whites are set and cheese melts and is bubbling, about 1 minute.

Cook's Notes

Eggs Kevin will taste different every time the cheese is varied; try Gruyere, goat cheese -- whatever you have on hand.
