Farmers Market Skillet Omelet

Beautiful weekend weather has finally returned to Atlanta! We celebrated by spending the morning at one of my favorite places, the Peachtree Road Farmers Market.

If you live in Atlanta and have never been, I highly recommend checking it out. It’s the largest producer-only farmers market in the state and they host demos with some of the best chefs in Atlanta every weekend.

The vendors offer everything from farm fresh eggs and local honey to heirloom vegetables and pasture-raised meat. We typically swing by for staples (aka bacon and bread) from Pine Street Market and H&F Bread Co. While I’m there, I’ll also peruse the produce to see if anything grabs me.

This morning I picked up a beautiful, big zuchinni, a yellow onion, and the prettiest little baby yellow German potatoes. We rushed home with our haul, which also included Applewood smoked bacon and a loaf of sourdough, and I went to work whipping up one of my favorite weekend breakfasts inspired by my farmers market finds: a skillet omelet!

Cherry Almond Scones with Sour Cream Glaze

Y’all. These scones might be one of the best things I’ve ever made.

Admittedly, I’m not a great baker. Don’t get me wrong – I love to bake, but baking and I aren’t always on good terms. The scientific nature of baking is something I find troublesome, not to mention the copious amount of leftover goodies hanging around.

Despite my love-hate relationship with baking, I frequently make scones. Scones are a perfect foray into the world of pastries. They’re fairly forgiving, as far as baked goods go, and the flavor possibilities are endless. A traditional cream scone, which is the foundation for this recipe, is light and crumbly without being too cake-y.
