  • 1 pkg (375 g) sliced Ontario-raised bacon
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) water or milk
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) diced bell peppers (any colour or combination)

  5. Let cool slightly before lifting them out to serve.

Storage: Let cool to room temperature and then pack them up in an airtight container. Keep refrigerated for up to 5 days. Alternatively, freeze in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
