Scrambled Eggs and Tomatoes

Recipe by  

"A fast meal of eggs scrambled with tomatoes, and then seasoned with some salt, sugar, and soy sauce. This was the very first recipe I cooked, with a little help from my parents...I think I was about 5 or 6 at the time. Eat as it is, or serve over rice."

I've noticed several people confused about the's not for the eggs, but the tomatoes. This is a traditional Chinese dish. I am not Chinese, but I've had it in many places in China and learned to make this from a Chinese girl. They even substitute ketchup for tomatoes sometimes.

Noone liked these. That's the best thing I could say about this recipe.

My family always put sugar in eggs so I liked that although the soy sauce was a bit strange in this dish. I probably would have preferred to leave that out and just add mozarella cheese to the egg/tomato mix instead.

MMM. This was so good. I ate mine over rice with some extra soy sauce. Next time I will add some onions and maybe shrimp or chicken.
