Bacon and Smoked Gouda Scramble

Jessi and I make a lot of brunches. One of the only reasonably priced foods at her local fancy grocery store is cheese. Despite the vast selection that it carries, we keep gravitating to the Smoked Gouda (because it's delicious, that's why). Then we scramble it up with some eggs for a quick and easy meal. We don't always use bacon in our scrambles, but I included it here anyhow.

--6 rashers of Thick-Cut Applewood Smoked Bacon, chopped into small cubes (Jessi sez: Turkey Bacon)
--8 Eggs, beaten and mixed with a splash Milk
--1/2 cup Smoked Gouda Cheese, grated or cut into tiny cubes
--Fresh-ground Black Pepper

Turn a skillet onto medium to low heat and add the bacon. Slowly cook until the fat is rendered but the bacon is not crispy. Drain off most of the fat, but leave the bacon in the pan. Add the eggs. Cook slowly, stirring constantly. When the eggs are about half done, add the cheese and some black pepper to taste. Continue to stir until it's cooked to the desired consistency. Serve on slices of toasted fresh bread.
