Personal Notes:
You can substitute the bacon with your favorite breakfast meat. My family loves to use cubed ham or ground turkey sausage. Also feel free to use any vegetables that you have on hand. Ie. broccoli or mushrooms. Makes a great dish for Easter Sunday, as well as, Christmas morning because you can make the night ahead and pop in the oven in the morning.

*Feel free to make it healthier by using egg whites, low-fat cheese, skim milk and turkey bacon or ham.
