A Simple Breakfast

 Sometimes simple is best.  My garden has suddenly delivered a bunch of tomatoes and peppers and not much else.  Eggs and peppers are such a good combination.

 I melted about 1 tablespoon of butter in a nonstick skillet.

 I sliced up a bunch of different peppers.  Some were sweet banana, some cubano and some just plain green peppers.

 I lightly sauteed them sprinkled with salt and pepper.  I like them to stay crunchy so this was a short saute'.

 Then I quickly beat 4 large eggs and poured them over the peppers.

 The tomatoes are so good that I can eat them like a peach.  Most often I slice them, lay them on paper towels and sprinkle them with sea salt.

 Placing a paper towel over them and pressing lightly dries off enough liquid to keep them from being too soupy.

Once the eggs began to set, I rolled the omelet and sprinkled grated provolone lightly over the top.  Cut into portions and served with the fresh tomatoes made a perfect breakfast.

Perfect breakfast my foot! This is what's for supper tonight. I can hardly wait. There is just something about fresh garden tomatoes and eggs that make my mouth water. Thanks for the reminder.

Yum yum! Now i am craving an omellette. My favorite on is with green peppers, a few french fries and feta cheese. If you have never tried the combination, please do, it is amazing even cold.

Our tomatoes are still quite green. Some are just getting big enough for fried green tomatoes.
Mmmmmm.
I can't eat fried food for breakfast but that is one perfect lunch! I wish I had any tomatoes yet or peppers. My plants just won't grow until we get some kind of summer heat here :-)

Have a great day!

That is one breakfast worth getting up for!!! One of the very few disadvantages of our cool summer so far(as we speak it is 64)is that we have no tomatoes yet at the farmer's market. I don't even try to grow them. Yours look so yummy!!!

Don't like too many green bell peppers but all the others with those eggs sound delicious.

Good for you! My tomatoes won't quit and I've had a gracious bounty. Almost nothing, last year, so I'm very grateful. And, I had a bounty of fresh organic eggs, too. Powdered almost 18 dozen! Good year for crops to carry us over for a couple of years. Ah, the life of the urban farmer...
