Bacon and Roasted Tomato Omelette

I love breakfast.  

I could eat breakfast for lunch and dinner. 

My weekday mornings consist of a bowl of cereal and cup of coffee...and even then I'm rushing out the door to get to work on time.  However, on the of my favorite things to do is get up and take my time making a delicious breakfast (or brunch depending on how late we sleep in), drink my coffee slowly, and relax with the hubby. I wish every day could start like this...

Bacon and Roasted Tomato Omelette

  • 6-9 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • Spinach leaves
Preheat oven to 350 F. Place the tomatoes, oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a baking dish and toss to coat. Roast for 10−12 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook the bacon for 4−5 minutes each side or until crispy. Place the eggs and chives in a bowl and whisk to combine. Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and cook for 3-4 minutes or until set. Top the omelette with spinach and roasted tomatoes. Serves 2.

Someday, every day will start like that, Josie. The most cherished moments of the day are when Mom and I share our cups of coffee together first thing in the morning...the whole house filled with that aroma of fresh ground coffee. Topped off with your omelet would be awesome! Love your posts...keep them coming. Love you too, Josie!
