How does a breakfast frittata with bacon and cheese, freshly baked biscuits with sausage gravy and a cup of fruit fluff sound?

Biscuits and Gravy
2 8-ounce boxes Jiffy Biscuit Mix, prepared as directed
1 or 2 15 oz cans sausage gravy

3 tablespoons olive oil
12 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 12 oz package bacon, cooked and crumbled (reserve a handful for topping)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp basil
1/2 tsp minced onion
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Fruit Fluff Cups
30 oz can fruit cocktail, drained well
11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained well
8 oz tub whipped topping

Cook bacon; crumble and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat olive oil in a cast iron frying pan on the stove over medium high heat. Crack eggs into a large bowl and beat just until whites and yolks are mixed together. Don't over beat. Stir in crumbled bacon (except for reserved portion), salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese, red pepper, parsley, basil and minced onion. Reduce heat slightly, and pour egg mixture into pan and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the edges begin to pull away from sides of pan.

Place frittata into preheated oven and bake for about 15-18 minutes, sprinkling shredded cheese and remaining bacon on top during the last few minutes of cooking. Cut into wedges; serve warm.

Add fruit to large bowl and mix together. Add whipped topping and gently toss to coat. Spoon into dessert cups.

Heat sausage gravy. Pour into bowl with spoon to serve.
