Happy Saturday! This morning we got up early; I'm not sure why that happens on the days when we could sleep in if we chose. Why doesn't this happen during the week I sometimes wonder. I was in the mood for an omelet...and not just any old omelet, but a BOT (Bacon, Onion & Tomato) omelet. I had a cluster of beautiful red ripe large cherry tomatoes on my tomato plant on the back deck that I tiptoed out on the rain covered deck to pick. I diced up a few strips of bacon, a small chunk of Vidalia onion and quartered my freshly picked tomatoes. I added a pat of Kerrygold butter to the pan and started out by sautéing the onions. When they began to soften, I added the bacon and allowed that to cook until the bacon became crispy and the Vidalia onions were nice and caramelized (about 5 minutes or so). I tossed in the tomatoes and cooked them for an additional minute until they just heated through, purposely not overcooking them so I could still enjoy the fresh tomato taste and texture. I added another pat of butter to a small nonstick skillet and beat 2 eggs, then poured them into the sizzling butter. Once my omelet was cooked, I added the bacon/onion/tomato mixture on top of the omelet as well as some diced spicy 3-alarm Colby-Jack cheese and then folded it in half and slid it onto the plate. The omelet was beautiful and added a bit of sunshine to this cloudy day! I grabbed a cup of coffee and headed out to the porch to enjoy a relaxing Saturday breakfast while we sat and enjoyed breakfast while listening to the rain fall. I snapped a few photos below. I think hubby and I will head out to DeKalb Farmers Market a little later when the rain slows down, but for now, hanging on the porch is the perfect place to be. Enjoy!

This is lovely! But I'm envious that you're getting tomatoes already. (We don't even have blossoms yet.) I guess that's one advantage of living in GA!
Where is the recipe?
This looks so yummy!!! I'm always so glad to see your posts!
