As the new snow blew in from the ol' North, it appears to be just a delightful day for the birds outside who are eating, and scattering seed everywhere to beat the band. Hundreds of birds gathered to fight over their bird seed, and the squirrels are starting to get into the act as well. I can see the deer moving in from the now snow white meadow to make their bellies plumb from eating extra corn at the full corn cribs. I just finished supplying the cattle with their sweet hay which is placed in their feeders, and calves were sleeping away after gorging on mother's milk. Everyone is fed. Good! Feeling rather proud at fulfilling the many needs of hungry animals and birds on the farm, I ponder for a minute, thinking "what can I feed us today"? Dennis reminds that he hasn't eaten since early in the morning and his stomach is growling like a lone tiger waiting for some action. Nope, can't forget Dennis....so I ran to the kitchen to see what I could scratch up. A potato left over from potato salad that had already been boiled, fresh bacon and fresh eggs. I set out to put this easier then hanging wash on the line during a breezy day recipe. Quick as winking your eye, and you have a platter of goodness right before your eyes. Which reminds me now, just where did Dennis go, oh, wait a minute....he's right here. Dennis has a *cute* habit of coming up behind and scaring me a lot. And this was gonna be one of *those* days.

  3. Break eggs in small bowl and whisk together.
  4. Add eggs to onion, potato mixture.
  5. With a rubber spatula, gently combining ingredients. until eggs set. Add cheese and bacon and continue heating until melted.

What a wonderful comfort type of breakfast!!! Just loved the combination of flavors of the onions, potatoes, bacon and eggs, perfect all in one pan meal!!! I did it a little different with the potatoes, in that, rather than boiling them, I just microwaved on high for 2 minutes and let cool a bit, then diced. I cut the recipe in half, but otherwise made a directed. Thanks Andi for sharing the wonderful breakfast recipe that we will be eating often. Made for Holiday Tag!!

This was good. I used canned diced potatoes and 3 tablespoons of hormel real bacon bits. I added cheddar cheese and about 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. I also added chived to the mixture. It didn't seem like enough eggs so I also added a total of seven eggs. We all enjoyed this and there wasn't anything left.

I had this for dinner! Very easy to make and very tasty and filling. I used cheddar, and topped with more cheddar and green onion. Thanks for this keeper.
