Breakfast when I got home was whipped up quick with left overs we had in the fridge. 
Ugh!  I have no idea what this came out so dark.  Half of the time, they are too bright.  Anyway - my plate was 1/2 english muffin, 1 slice of bacon, 1/2 cup potato and chicken mixture and 1/4 cup of scrambled eggs with ketchup.  Yum!

4 eggs and 1 tablespoon of milk for scrambled eggs. sprinkled with shredded cheese.
8 slices of bacon - made in microwave.
2 whole wheat english muffins with margarine.
Heated in skillet on medium high heat with 1 tbsp of olive oil: 1 cup of left over potatoes from last night's steak dinner + 1/4 cup chopped onion + handful of cherry tomatoes from last night's dinner + 1 grilled chicken breast from dinner a few nights ago - cut into bite size pieces.  Serve with ketchup.
