This reminds me of a recipe i used to cook, back before diabetes. Should be fine for diabetics. It involved layering tomatoes, zuchinni; bacon, and parmesan cheese, then baking for a bit. May have to do some experimentation, see if I can come up with that again. Not really breakfast, but if you have you own garden, it was yummy, and a place to use those pesky zuchs.
Bet iI could add some eggs somehow and make it breakfast!.

I like easy and this certainly does sound like it. I have a lot of tomatoes so I am going to experiment with this recipe. I do not have a toaster oven but I thought I might be able to use the broiler in the oven. Thank you!
