  2. Add the potatoes and brown lightly.
  3. Beat the eggs lightly and add the salt, pepper, milk and finally the bacon (chopped).
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the onions and potatoes and stir occasionally until cooked.

Oh, this is right on, especially for a farmer! I halved this, and used baby red potatoes sliced in half (just picked from the garden!) and this was heaven on a plate! Made for ZWT 6 2010

Mmm, comfort food after a long drive home. Oops, breakfast is somtimes great for dinner too! Lovely simple flavours, which are often the best. Added a little Tabasco sauce when eating, just for a little zing! Made for PAC 2011.

This is really good. I did as another reviewer suggested and used less potatoes (two). My son felt that he still couldn't taste the eggs. I was happy though.
