tomatoes for breakfast

For me this time of year is what being a gardener is all about. I love having an abundance of food from our yard that is so flavorful you can make a few simple ingredients taste incredible.

We were out of bread this morning, so no eggs in a nest. I glanced over at the growing pile of tomatoes in the kitchen and breakfast was born: heirloom tomatoes and basil from the garden, a drizzle of olive oil, S&P and two poached eggs on top. Perfection!

  1. I know exactly what you mean about the groaning pile of tomatoes in the kitchen. I have tomatoes that need to be picked but have no place to put them. I just did a post about the same situation. I’m sure your breakfast was delicious. I guess it takes a gardener to know a gardener. Beautiful!

    The best breakfast in the world is a BIG slice of Tomato on a homemade biscuit, salt and pepper. It’s a little bit of heaven.
