kitchen shears and then

into smaller pieces. Place the trimmed bacon in a

3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, paprika and
the egg mixture into the frying pan. With a spatula, pull
from the edges towards the center. Shake the pan to
allow any uncooked
egg to fill in the outer edges.

the middle to
round, then turn once. Top with bacon, potato and cheese.
