An economical, one dish dinner recipe made with eggs, bacon, cheese and apples. For the vegetarian version, simply leave out the bacon.

From the author: “A favorite around our house, which meets all nutritional and palate needs. We have a diabetic and gluten intolerant eater as well as a very picky 6-year-old. This fits the bill for both of them! And it only takes about 10 minutes to make, which fits my needs.”
