if the fat content is an issue, replace bacon with cubbed ham, has less fat content than bacon. I cook this with a scout troop on camp outs.

Yes, we have to be careful of how much fat we are eating however if, as a diabetic, you are exercising and only eat meals like this once in a while then it won't hurt you. If you're camping you are likely hiking, fishing, skiing, or other activities…this won't hurt you.

I tried this recipe this a.m. and used egg beaters and turkey sausage (turkey bacon did not taste right last weekend) and it was a hit with the family and they had no idea it was diabetic.

Since we are campers I will definatly try this. For less fat use Turkey bacon and reduced fat cheese. It will be just as good.
