This was outstanding! Used roma tomatoes fresh from the garden and wow, wow, wow this was sooooo good. The only change I would make is to crisp the bacon first, and then cook the onions and re-add the crispy bacon when adding the tomatoes. The mouth-feel was wonderful, small sweet bits of onion, little bits of bacon. I devoured it before my grilled cheese was even ready!
