This was a very nice presentation for breakfast. It's also great that it can be cooked all in one pan. Made as directed, halving the recipe but using 3 eggs. Also, as it was too hot outside to use my oven, after breaking the eggs into the potato mixture, I put a lid over top the skillet and steamed them cooked. This worked great! Although we used a fresh from the garden tomato, our first bite of the finished dish left us with wanting to put ketchup on it (or hot sauce) We chose ketchup which made it taste wonderful! Next time we will omit the tomatoes and sprinkle the crisp bacon over top. And maybe add some shredded cheese too as it's very adaptable. There's a lot of prep to this recipe, but it's definitely worth trying, and looks great to serve for company. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
