Bacon-Mushroom “Pancake”

Well, I guess I was hungry this morning, because I sliced off a portion of my breakfast egg dish before I got my camera out to take a picture!   I call this a “pancake” because it was quite thin, with only 3 eggs in it.  But then I’m not terribly fond of eggs, so are you surprised?  If you prefer more of a frittata, just increase the eggs to 4 or 5.  This was prepared with precooked bacon, something I never have around as a rule.  I don’t like the taste of precooked bacon so much.  But I bought and rendered out a 3# box of bacon ends and pieces this week and these cooked lean crumbled bits of various shapes and sizes I saved for such recipes as this one.  Worked out fine in this dish, as it was delicious.  This breakfast or brunch dish is suitable for all phases of Atkins and Keto programs.  It passes muster for Primal and Paleo diners as well, provided you clarify the butter, of course.
