Mini Frittata or Un-Scrambled Eggs with Bacon, Feta, and Green Onions

(Makes 1 generous serving, recipe created by Kalyn)

3 eggs
1 T milk, half and half, or cream (use lowfat milk for South Beach Diet)
Spike seasoning to taste
fresh ground pepper to taste
2 slices bacon (I use pre-cooked bacon from Costco, the type that's sold in the refrigerated case)
2 T sliced green onion
1 tsp. butter or olive oil (use olive oil for South Beach Diet)
2 T crumbled Feta (I use my favorite Feta Cheese)

For best results with this recipe, use a 9" non-stick omelet pan.

In a small mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, and Spike together. (Don't be tempted to add salt, the bacon and Feta will make it salty enough!)

Put bacon on a plate with a paper towel above and below the bacon and cook in microwave until very crisp, about 3 minutes. As bacon cooks, add olive oil to omelet pan, then add green onions, turn heat to low, and cook 2-3 minutes or until onions are just starting to soften, but not browned. Blot bacon with paper towels to remove as much fat as possible, then crumble bacon , add to pan and cook 1 minute more.

Pour beaten eggs over the onion-bacon mixture, then crumble Feta over eggs. Keep heat on low, cover pan, and cook about 10 minutes. It's done when eggs look set but still slightly moist, Feta looks melted, and the eggs have puffed up slightly.

Turn off heat and let eggs sit one minute. Grind some fresh ground pepper over, and enjoy.
