Bacon and Egg Breakfast Scramble

School holidays and an abundance of public holidays mean more lazy mornings and more time to whip up a decent breakfast. Being the doting wife that I am (hah!) I am more than happy to spend my mornings serving the family up the breakfast of their choice. I think that by starting the day with a decent breakfast it gets the kids and hubby off to a good start. Often times that means making 3 different breakfasts, but I have a rule about lunch and dinner being the same for everyone so breakfast is a little more flexible (plus, it's pretty easy to make 3 different styles of eggs, or a plate of toast and fruit - it's the easiest meal to be flexible with!

The kids often like an omelette, as does hubby. The kids prefer to have just egg in their omelette and usually have it with a slice of gluten free toast and a piece of fruit. Hubby on have other hand prefers a grain free, vege packed version. These days there is a pretty standard recipe that makes up the morning omelette - a couple of eggs, a splash of coconut milk, a sliced spring onion or half a regular onion, about 6 button mushrooms, and a giant handful of baby spinach. 

This recipe for the scramble below is just a version of that - with a hit of bacon added for the long weekend!

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Scramble

2 or 3 large eggs
2 tbsp coconut milk
1/2 a green capsicum, cut into small chunks
6 rashers of bacon, sliced
6 button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 an onion, thinly sliced
1 tsp coconut oil
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, salt and pepper
3. To the frying pan, add the bacon, mushrooms, onion, and capsicum. Fry until bacon is cooked and veges are softened
4. Add the egg mix to the pan. Using a fish slice or spoon, gently lift the eggs to allow the uncooked egg to run underneath (pull the cooked egg from the sides of the pan into the middle and keep repeating until all egg is cooked. You can scramble or not scramble the mix as much as you like.
5. Serve topped with sliced avocado or a handful of rocket, or if you want to spice things up a little drizzle with a hit of your favourite chilli sauce.

This the is a delicious and nutritious ways to start the day - satisfying, filling, full of nutrients and so,so tasty.
