Scrambled Eggs with Bacon and Sweet Peppers

If you’re looking for a great Fall breakfast that isn’t sweet, pastry-like or contains pumpkin…you should give this a go!

Scrambled eggs and bacon were my “go-to” breakfast as a child. Though I think I may have added a few pounds (or so it seemed!) of cheddar cheese into the mix. I had a knack for overdoing it on anything dairy. In fact, my family called me a “milk-aholic” as I’d drink at least 16 oz of milk with every breakfast as well. And back then it was definitely not organic.

So my childhood eggs were bright orange due to vast quantity of cheddar cheese, whereas these eggs are a brilliant orange due to the sweet peppers. Much better, more flavorful and waaayyy healthier.

Who says you don’t get smarter with age?! ;)
