    ellie_'s Note:

    I came across this recipe while looking for new ideas for weekend breakfasts and using garden herbs. This is a bit time consuming but both the herb walnut butter and tomato sauce can be made a few days ahead and refrigerated. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (August 1984)

      I skipped the walnuts because I was out and in the middle of making the butter. :( I used Canadian ham in place of the bacon. Made 2 omlets and added cheese to one.These are full of flavor. Thanks!
