  • 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
  • 1 pinch each of salt and black pepper


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.

Add onions to the skillet and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and stir to scramble, about 2 minutes.

Add the milk and cook, stirring, until very hot but not boiling. Add instant mashed potatoes and stir until desired consistency. For a thicker mixture add more instant mashed potatoes.

Season with salt and pepper. Serve with crumbled bacon on top.
