Pesto/Garlic Tomatoes on toast with streaky bacon and scrambled eggs?

Carefully wanders in to her first AIBU. First of all I know I'm very fortunate to have a DH who not only cooks but shops and cleans, and I really enjoy our Tuesdays studying together now we are slightly challenged on the job front, but....

AIBU to think that chopped tomatoes in pesto on garlic rubbed bread are just a very wierd accompaniment to streaky bacon and scrambled eggs for lunch? When I moved my bacon and eggs to a different plate and had it as two (very delicious, but separate, courses) DH has gone all huffy and called me a 'fussy bugger'. I must stress that I have thanked him for making me food, and saying it was all lovely, but now I feel guilty.

Tomatoes and toast go with bacon and eggs. as it's like a cooked breakfast/brunch, but I have to admit that garlic & pesto tomatoes are not really breakfast/brunch food, IMO, so I would find it an odd combo and would probably do what you did!

I think if it was just the pesto/garlic tomatoes and the bacon that would be fine, but adding scrambled eggs does seem a bit odd!

And I'm pretty adventurous with food, FWIW.

pesto and bacon sounds like a weird combo

It sounds very odd to me - as two separate courses ie: bruschetta followed by bacon and scrambled eggs it sounds OK(ish) - but I am very fussy and don't really like other people cooking for me grin.

I have a hobby, I'm sitting here on MN doing my maths for my OU course, watching DH do something that involves a lot of words for his MA. But seriously, bread, tomato, bacon and egg vvv good, plus pesto and garlic just a bit odd?

YANBU that sounds a rather odd mixture.

Phew some cross posts, Delia says it's an odd combo so I must be right!

it's not an odd combo.

my ex used to have this thing about only certain foods going together.
very odd,.

Be adventurous!

YABU (but in the nicest possible way)

Bacon & pesto - yummy. Ditto tomatoes. Toast fine., just not right.
