Fun Carved Tomato – Halloween

Carved Tomato

Everyone has seen or even made their own carved pumpkin for Halloween but have you ever eaten one?!?!

So I thought I’d do my own take on the carved pumpkin making a mini, edible one from a tomato. It’s a fun way to do scrambled eggs and tomato for breakfast or a snack and I have to say delicious. Had to make one for everyone … lucky I am now an “expert” carver and it’s deceptively quick and simple.

– A firm tomato. Look for the perfect shape!

– Scrambled egg.

– I used cheese for the stalk.

– I sprinkled thyme as it tastes so good with egg.


1. Carve the traditional triangular eyes and nose from the front of the tomato. Then cut a mouth with teeth. You will need a sharp knife but it’s actually quite simple to do.

I propped it up so it was easier to see the face.

2. Then I cut a flap at the back and hollowed out the tomato which wasn’t hard to do.

3. I stuffed the tomato full of scrambled egg.

And put the rest underneath and around.

4. I used a chunk of cheese to make the stalk and I thought a yellow picnic plate may look better ……
