Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 15 mins


    4 strips lean turkey bacon
    1 bunch green onions, chopped (including green tops)
    6 medium eggs
    1 1/2 cup skim milk
    1/8 tsp garlic powder
    1 cup instant mashed Idaho Potato flakes, dry

    Prepare grill or campfire fitted with cooking rack. In a large, heavy skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but about 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat.
