Baby it’s cold out there……a good hearty breakfast is a great way to start these cold winter mornings. Our Aunt Tiny lived in the Imperial valley in California. Our relatives that lived there were all farmers and hunted the fields for birds during the fall-winter months. Now this was all back in the 70’s and 80’s…… And I still make this dish, whether it is camping, hunting, a family gathering or just because.
It has a great flavor, easy to make and hearty. This feeds 2-4 depending on portion size
- 6 strips of bacon
- 1/2 chopped onion
- 1/2 green pepper chopped
- 3 small potatoes
- 4 eggs
- Garlic salt and some pepper
In a large frying pan, I use cast iron: fry bacon. You can do it in pieces or whole and break it up later. Do not fry extra crisp. Meanwhile wash potatoes, using a grater on the slice side ( should be two- three slots on a narrow side) slice potatoes and set aside. Chop onion and pepper into small to medium pieces. After bacon is done place on an absorbent paper and save for later. Drain almost all the grease off. Place skillet back on heat and add potato slices. Do not turn until it starts to brown. After one side starts to brown add onion and pepper. Sprinkle with garlic salt and add pepper: the amount is up to you. I use just a bit of pepper but a few good shakes of garlic salt. Since the potatoes are thin they do not take too long to brown and cook. After both sides show some browning add back broken up bacon pieces. Break eggs into a bowl and beat. Stir mixture then add eggs to mixture. Let sit just a minute or two then stir everything together. Gently flip over until eggs are done.
This will keep you full for the day…….as always we hope you enjoy
