Ingredients:

- 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon of melted butter
- 1 tablespoon of flour
- 4 eggs, separated

Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to a moderate temperature.

2. Begin by removing the skin from the fresh tomatoes. If using canned tomatoes, simply drain and chop them.

3. In a saucepan, cook the tomatoes over medium heat for approximately 20 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

4. Season the tomatoes with chopped parsley, chopped onion, salt, and pepper. Allow the flavors to meld for a few minutes.

5. In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter with flour to create a thickening mixture.

6. Add the thickening mixture into the tomato mixture and stir well. Allow the mixture to cool slightly.

7. Once the tomato mixture has cooled, add the beaten egg yolks and mix well. This will give the dish a creamy texture.

8. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. This will add a light and fluffy element to the dish.

9. Carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the tomato and egg yolk mixture. Be gentle to maintain the airiness of the egg whites.

10. Butter a pudding dish and pour the mixture into it. The dish should be placed in a water bath (a pan of lukewarm water) for even baking.

11. Place the pudding dish with the mixture in the preheated oven. Bake until the top turns golden brown, usually around 30-40 minutes. The baking time may vary, so keep an eye on it.

12. Once the Baked Egg With Tomatoes is ready, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before serving.
