Want a filling meal to start the day? Try an Egg, Bacon and Veggie Scramble – it’s a delicious and easy to make, healthy breakfast.
Do you enjoy scrambled eggs for breakfast? I sure do, and usually enjoy them the most when combined with ham chunks and cheddar cheese! That’s my FAVORITE way to eat them, even if it’s not the healthiest way to enjoy them.
That being said, at times I try to eat “healthier” meals, and this is a “go to” recipe I came up with to do that! I know I need to incorporate more vegetables into my meals, and this breakfast recipe helps to achieve that goal.
This yummy egg dish is filling, because it’s full of scrambled eggs, bacon, cooked broccoli, green onions and red bell peppers! It has color, texture, protein, and FLAVOR!
As written, this recipe will make one serving, but can easily be adapted for more servings. Here’s how to make an egg, bacon and veggie scramble.

Cook The Chopped Bacon Until Crisp
Cut a slice of bacon into thin strips or pieces. Place the bacon in a medium non-stick skillet (big enough to cook the eggs later).
Cook the bacon, stirring often, until it becomes crispy. Once the bacon has finished cooking, leave the bacon (and the bacon “grease”) in the skillet.
NOTE: If you are making more than this one serving, you will have more grease remaining than you’ll need (from using more bacon). For each portion, you need to leave about 1 teaspoon of grease remaining in the skillet.
Add The Veggies To The Skillet
Add chopped red bell pepper, broccoli, and chopped green onions to the skillet with the bacon (and bacon “grease). Stir, to combine them with the bacon.
No oil is needed, since the veggies will cook in the small amount of bacon grease left in the skillet. Cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the veggies become tender.
Now Let’s Scramble Those Eggs
In a small bowl, whisk together two eggs and 2 Tablespoon of milk until combined. Add the eggs to the skillet, and stir, to combine them with the veggies.
Cook the eggs, stirring occasionally, until they’re fully cooked, and well-incorporated into the veggies and bacon in the skillet.
Time To Enjoy The Egg, Bacon and Veggie Scramble
Immediately transfer the hot egg, bacon and veggie scramble onto a plate, and serve immediately. Be sure to serve the scrambled eggs with a favorite side dish!
I LOVE to have these scrambled eggs with half of a juicy, Ruby red grapefruit on the side. It’s such a delicious breakfast, and I enjoy it often!
The texture and color of the veggies, the golden colored eggs and the pinkish red of the grapefruit make this meal “pretty on the plate”, too! YUM!
What If I Don’t Eat Bacon?
If you don’t eat meat or don’t want to use the bacon called for in the recipe, no problem! All you’ll need is a tiny bit of a light oil to cook the veggies in.
Simply heat 1 teaspoon of a neutral cooking oil in the skillet and then cook the chopped broccoli, red bell peppers and green onions. Proceed with the rest of the recipe, as written.
I hope you have the chance to make this yummy egg, bacon and veggie scramble for yourself or someone you love. It’s delicious!
As written, this recipe makes enough for one serving. However, the quantity can EASILY be doubled, tripled, etc. so you can make as much of this recipe as you need.
