Bacon and Veggie Skillet Scramble

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lainey39

This is something I make my family for breakfast on weekend mornings. I vary it and sometimes use sausage in place of the bacon. Leftover baked potatoes also work great and cut down cooking time.

Not only was this Delicious, but it brought back a childhood memory! My dad use to make something similar that I was unable to re-create! When I tasted this, it reminded me of my Dad ;) 5 stars for the memory alone... as well as the dish. Thanks Lainey!! This was simple to make and scrumptious. Served with flour tortillas for brunch.

  6. Move vegetable and bacon mixture to cover only half of the skillet.
  7. Whisk eggs again briefly and then add in 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.
  8. Pour into the empty half of the skillet.
  9. When the eggs start to set, start to scramble and stir entire mixture together until eggs reach the desired consistency.
  10. Season with salt and pepper.
  11. Sprinkle additional cheddar cheese on top, if using and allow to melt.
  12. Delicious!
