Breakfast Scramble

This is definitely not a super healthy breakfast, but definitely a filling one. I intentionally left the amounts of the spices blank, I always just ballpark how much of each to taste. For timing, I usually start cooking the bacon when the potatoes are about halfway so everything finishes at relatively the same time. Feel free to add cheese or cut out the bacon to add more vegetables and make it a little less bad for you.
