Bacon & Roasted Tomato Omelette {October Potluck}

If given the choice between fancy breakfast or more time snug in my bed, snug in my bed wins.
For sure.  No hesitation.

 So why the fancy breakfast complete with bacon, fluffy eggs filled with chives, and sweet and tangy roasted tomatoes?

Because this is one of those dishes that looks like you dragged yourself to the kitchen at the butt crack of dawn to put it on the table, but it only takes about 20 minutes.  Probably less for you.  I'm not too functional first thing in the morning.

Notes:
The Husband thought the dish seemed like a play on a BLT (which is a good thing).  I thought it was kinda cool that my bacon was cooked right into my eggs.

About these roasted tomatoes...I wasn't too sure about the brown sugar.  But the sugar and balsamic vinegar made them something special.  The tomato part was my favorite.  They'd be great spooned over lots of things.  I don't know if eggs would be my first choice though.  They overpowered the eggs somewhat, yet worked perfectly with the salty bacon.

The recipe can be found at Donna Hay's website.
What I did differently:
* used 1 Roma tomato per person, quartered before roasting
* cooked individual servings in my tiny egg pan
* I lifted the omelette along the edges with my spatula and tilted the pan so the uncooked egg could seep under what had set up.  Otherwise, I think the bottom would have browned before all the egg mixture had set.  (Note: I don't...can't...really can't...do runny egg.)

It's potluck time at I Heart Cooking Clubs.  Take a look at the dishes!

  6. I don't really do runny eggs either...they can be barely loose but runny sends me running. This dish looks wonderful! I like the play on BLT, who doesn't like a BLT? Nice description and photo.

  8. This omelette looks so appetizing! I love your version , which looks more tender, creamy. The roasted tomato brings out the flavour through the picture!

  9. While, I can't eat the bacon, I would love these eggs with roasted tomatoes. Donna Hay has good recipes.

  10. More time in bed would win for me hands down too. But then, ever one to have my cake and eat it too if I can get away with, it would not be unheard of for me to drag my a@* out of bed at 1.00 in the afternoon and then still have the fancy schmancy breakfast in the middle of the afternoon. I love runny yolks in poached, fried or boiled form, but runny eggs in omelette form - absolutely not.

    Love that the bacon is cooked into the eggs, and those tomatoes look to die for. Definitely on my must try list.

  12. Ok, one day we have got to get together because I cook my omelettes the same way (and I don't do runny egg either). Too funny! I gotta say that I'm really loving how simple and easy these Donna Hay recipes are. I went with her during potluck week for that very same reason. I think this looks like a stunning breakfast, especially when you say it only took 20 minutes!
