    This is a great idea, but really, turkey bacon is worse for you than regular bacon. It's loaded with sodium, nitrates, preservatives and food dyes. Better off using ham, or half of a leaner natural bacon and dicing that up. Or like one person did, turkey sausage. Stay away from turkey bacon! - 3/26/09

    Yum. In Texas we would call it a breakfast taco or taquito. If you want to save a few more calories, try it with corn tortillas instead - or whole wheat flour tortillas. - 5/25/08

    I'm going to try a version of this! For those of you who don't have 10 family members you can use the recipe calculator to make changes - including substitutions like whole wheat tortillas and/or Southwestern (or regular) Egg Beaters! - 3/25/08

    For those who do not like green peppers and onions, like me, try sliced black olives and a touch of garlic powder instead with the rest the same. This is aweome for for breakfast or dinner, and you can roll up some extras in zip-locks for later or the next day! Or freeze for 1 minute breakfast days. - 7/5/08
