This recipe or tomato scrambled eggs (olu kultenis ar tomātiem) is another childhood memory and one of couple recipes I picked up from my mum by just observing her relatively rare appearances in the kitchen. If my memory is not misleading me, this dish was more often eaten for lunch or dinner, but now it is one of my morning staples. I like this traditional Latvian breakfast dish simple – just eggs, tomato and a pinch of pepper, but you can serve them with herbs (chives, parsley, dill, basil) and/or cheese on top.
