Bacon,mushrooms, red pepper and onions bring excitement to the scrambled egg. If using leftover bacon drippings isn't your thing, you might try olive oil. This has become DH's favorite breakfast. Sometimes I eat one of the pieces of bacon (while DH isn't looking), so if you're like me, plan on cooking more. Adding the cheese and bacon right before serving insures the bacon is crisp and the cheese is barely melted. revision: 7/17/09 per kate's review: at step 5 be ready and prepared to add back in the sauted veggies when eggs are not quite done, certainly not set, but not completely runny, if you let the eggs cook too much, you'll end up with over cooked eggs, no fun!!!! Then right before serving toss/fold in the fried bacon. I'm sorry this was not completley clear in my original posting of the recipe.
