Smoked Salmon and Tomato Baked Eggs

We had left over smoked salmon from yesterday's breakfast so I made simple baked eggs for breakfast. I would normally do it with pancetta instead, but c'est la vie. It was only missing capers

It's a great easy breakfast for as many people as you want, and one of the easiest ways to make eggs for a crowd, and a fun way to make eggs for an individual
