bacon, cut into small pieces
peeled and shredded potatoes
shredded Cheddar cheese
We tried this recipe for Sunday Brunch and scaled it down to just 3, but it fed us(my wife , son and I) and also my wifes grandmother, and we all loved it! I also added some onion to the bacon grease before I put in the potatoes and it tasted great. My wifes grandmother put some salsa on her's and liked that with it too. Excellent!
I used some leftover boiled potatoes and smoked sausage, about 1/3 lb and 6 eggs, and was enough to feed 4 hungry people. My husband added salsa to his and said very good.
why is this hiding in the christmas section? It is very good! Per others, I added some diced onions to the potato saute apprx halfway through cooking and during the last 5-7 min, added some fresh, chopped broccoli. I also added a little milk to the egg mix and sprinkled some cheddar cheese to melt when all was done. Very tasty! Thanks Vel for the tasty breakfast to start our day!!
Not the absolute best thing we've ever had, but it was fun since it combined out usual once a week breakfast items (scrambled eggs w/cheese, bacon & hashbrowns) into one dish. I also added a little onion and wish I had actually added more. I'd make it again, but add onion and maybe a few other items to give it more flavor.
I made this for a Rev War encampment and it easily fed 6 of us. I used half the bacon fat and half the cheese as I could imagine the sound of major arteries slamming shut as it cooked. It got rave reviews, i.e. "this is my kind of breakfast!". I also sauteed an onion while the bacon was cooking and I should have used two as the onion added a great flavor to the dish.
If you cook with a lid this will steam your potaotes and make them soft. Without a lid they can be cooked to desired crispness. I added onions and green pepper and this was loved by 4 family members. The idea of salsa sounds really good.
I used different amounts of all the ingredients (didn't measure anything) and frozen shredded potatoes. If you don't want to dirty another dish, you can just crack the eggs right over the potatoes, add seasoned salt, and mix it in. I thought this was really yummy and we put it in tortillas. Taco sauce, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, green onions and other burrito toppings would be good to add too.
I love this recipe for when I need a Quick and Simple something to feed my family
