Serves: 1


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1⁄4 tsp. salt, divided
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1⁄4 cup sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1⁄4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1⁄8 tsp. ground black pepper

  • 1⁄4 cup shredded fontina cheese


  • Whisk the eggs with 1⁄8 teaspoon salt in a small bowl; set aside.
  • In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and crumble or chop into small pieces; set aside.
  • Add the mushrooms, garlic, oregano, and 1⁄8 teaspoon salt and pepper to fat left in pan. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is evaporated. Remove from skillet and set aside.
