Tip #1

- You can make this breakfast dish the night before. Prepare as directed. Do not top with remaining 1 cup cheese. Cover; refrigerate. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before baking. Bake at 350°F, 50 minutes. Top with 1 cup cheese. Continue baking 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.

Tip #2

- To speed up preparation, purchase ready-to-use bacon pieces, found in the salad dressing aisle of the grocery store, instead of cooking slices of bacon.

I thought this was a little plain, even though I seasoned the turkey pretty thoroughly with penzey's "tuscan sunset" blend and added garlic when I sautéed the red pepper and onion. Everybody else just loved it, though, and there wasn't any left, so I'll probably make it again at some point.
