Country-Style Scrambled Eggs

Total Time

This is a recipe that my sisters and I often made for breakfast/brunch on the weekends, but we didn't measure the amounts. To make things easier, we used Ore Ida's Potatoes O'Brien Hash Browns, so no cleaning or dicing of the potatoes, onions and peppers, and we loved that it was a one dish meal. This recipe was found in my Taste Of Home Magazine, and uses fresh ingredients and lists the amounts. I would cut down the amount of green peppers for our taste, so adjust to your tastes.

Loved this! Our kind of breakfast with all of the goodies in one pan. I added a couple of slices of red pepper as well since I had some handy. We gobbled this down and as soon as we finished eating I realized that the cheese was still sitting on the counter. lol. It was good with it too. Thanks Lynn for another keeper.

This was good and easy to make. I used a can of diced potatoes and didn't use all the salt. My son loved it but my husband thought it needed more eggs and less bacon. I liked it. My son said this was his favorite breakfast.
