Breakfast Pizza with Kings Hawaiian

Kings Hawaiian bread has been in my life since I was a kid. I remember going to the store to buy it. When we would get home we would just eat it plain. Nowadays I still eat it plain but also feel it goes really well with eggs. My family's favorite egg recipe is my breakfast pizza. Eggs, bacon and cheese all on a delicious sweet crust. I would make this recipe for my husband at least once a week back in the day. He gives it two thumbs up.

1 Round Kings Hawaiian bread
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Cups chopped bell pepper (I used a mixture of red, yellow, and orange.)
1/2 Cup chopped onion
10 eggs
1 Tbs of milk
1/4 Cup chopped green onion
5 Strips of ready cook bacon chopped
1 Cup of your favorite shredded cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the Kings Hawaiian bread in half. Place the bottom half on a baking sheet. Scoop out some of the bread in the middle to make a well, don't go too deep. Place the bread in the oven for 8 minutes. Pull it out and set aside.

Crack the eggs into a separate bowl and add 1 Tbs of milk. Whisk the eggs together, set aside. Meanwhile, in a skillet heat the oil. Add the peppers then onions. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Cook the peppers and onions until the onions are translucent, stirring often. Add the eggs and green onion and scramble. Scramble the eggs until they are mostly cooked.

Sprinkle half of the shredded cheese on the crust. Pour the eggs into the crust. Top with remaining cheese and bacon. Bake for 10 minutes or until eggs are fully cooked. Slice and enjoy.

Making the switch

For the past couple of months I have made the switch from eating meat everyday to only eating it once in awhile. I would say my diet is now about 95% vegetarian. This was a big change for me. I grew up eating meat everyday. Pot roast, beef stew, and leftover turkey were among my favorite meals. However, I knew it was time for a change. After watching some documentaries on where and how the animals are being treated and the reasons why our body may not be made for eating them, I decided to take the plunge and cut back extremely on my meat eating. 

If I do eat meat it is usually when we go out to eat. The vegetarian options around here are slim unless all you want to eat is a salad or side items. Those are the times I give in and eat a little meat.

My main reason for this new lifestyle is to be healthier. I have been replacing some of my bad snacks with the healthier versions. I am also limiting my dairy intake because I feel it does not agree with me anymore. I have to say it has been easier than I thought it would be. I grew up eating vegetables everyday also, so I already have a fondness for them.
What have you recently made the switch to?
