    Bergy's Note:

    I have cut the bacon back in this recipe - it originally called for 4 oz. For the omelete I like to add 1 tsp flour, 2 tbsp cottage cheese or sour cream & 1/4 cup of milk to the eggs and beat well. The omelete is lighter. Another trick is make this the day after you have made oven fries, make extra fries and then chop them into 1/2" pieces and use instead of the boiled potato.

      I used 4 slices of bacon, green onion tops instead of chives, and didn't peel the potatoes. This is great! My only problem is that even though this makes a fairly good amount of food, it seemed like too much for one but not quite enough for two. I hope to be making this again soon.

      This was great! I love the idea of adding flour, milk and cottage cheese to it. It makes it VERY fluffy! For my family of four I put in 8 eggs and adjusted accordingly for the remaining ingredients. And we didn't even eat it all! I did add a few extra things such as cream cheese, minced garlic, and cheddar cheese. Thank you SO much for posting this!

      This was delicious, I added garlic powder, and three shakes of Warcestershire Sauce, 1/2 cup grated yellow cheese and used green onions vs the chopped onions. This recipe is a keeper. Chris
