    Did not cook in my standard oven in 20 minutes (10m with lid, 10m without). Tried to broil and it started to cook but split the tomatoes so egg leaked a bit). So took it to my toaster oven and baked better. Maybe oven was too big for only 4 tomatoes.

      Good to know - thanks for sharing Miranda...would you try them again do you think?

        Definitely! Now that I know how to properly bake it :). Sweetened the tomatoes so was able to get even my daughter (hates veggies) to eat some!
