If I want "bacon and eggs" without the guilt, I spray my pan with Pam and toss in one teaspoon of Oscar Mayer Real Bacon bits. (Note that normal "serving" is one tablespoon.) I let them sizzle in the pan until I smell the great bacon aroma, and then scramble in my egg or egg substitute. Nutrition count for this REAL bacon is 8 calories, 1/2 gram of fat, and 57 mg of sodium - way less than any other "bacon" option. It totally satisfies "the bacon jones."

The basic breakfast of eggs, bacon, and cheese can be presented so that it appears to be quite different meals. Chop up your veggies and bacon and heat in skillet, pour over the scrambled eggs, put lid on top, put on low for 20 mins is a fritata. Add cheese at the end of cooking. Or line a muffin tin with cooked strip of bacon, add the scrambled eggs, bake for 20 mins at 400 -- now you have a breakfast muffin. Top with cheese. Or keep it simple and just scramble the eggs and bacon
I've noticed that if I eat a high protein breakfast then I am full all morning without any hunger pangs! At least 15g of protein in my breakfast helps me feel satisfied for longer than a lower protein breakfast. Don't skimp on your carbs though, my whole grain bread has 5g of protein in one slice.
Foods I eat to get my breakfast protein include eggs, turkey bacon, whole grain bread, and cheese.
