Warm Cherry Tomato, Bacon & Egg Toasts – Recipe!

Print Friendly

I’m already thinking about brunch this weekend.  Brunch is a lovely time of either Saturday or Sunday when the running is done and we are ready to sit down, relax and enjoy a meal.  Brunch Foods are usually about eggs, not always, but most of the time.  I am not a huge fan of eggs, yes my secret is out – so I try and doctor them up as best I can because I know they are good for me.  Most of the time I douse them in hot sauce or cook them with other things, and piling them on toast with other things is a great idea to highlight some other ingredients.

Cherry tomatoes are a must during the winter months because regular slicing tomatoes are not much fun in the off-season.  Cooking cherry tomatoes softens them just right – I like to toss them in a pan for a couple of minutes in a little butter or grease from bacon.

In this recipe for Warm Cherry Tomatoes, Bacon & Egg Toasts the flavors all balance off each other.  The tomatoes add sweetness, eggs a creamy consistency and bacon is definitely the salt you need on top of breakfast toasts.

I like to enjoy these for breakfast or brunch, but sometimes they make a great lunch or dinner too!  You can change up the toppings with the seasons, but these are pretty great the way they are.
