Delaware Farmers' Breakfast

Recipe by AmyZoe

I need to use up some potatoes and already cooked bacon, and I found this recipe in 1990 Hometown Collection America's Best Recipes. It is from Charlotte Givens and was originally in The Delaware Heritage Cookbook. The recipe didn't look that exciting to me, but it I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy it was! I let the potatoes cook in the pan and didn't cook them in advance. I threw in some red onion (more like a cup--not 2 tablespoons) and green and yellow peppers for color/flavor (probably a cup as well). I used a cup of cheddar cheese and threw the bacon in right before I melted the cheese. It's probably the bacon grease that makes it so tasty. This hit the spot!
