Recipe by Meredith K.
A hearty breakfast that makes good leftovers (if there are any!). Although I've used bacon here, feel free to substitue any cooked sausage or ham or.... Same goes for the cheese and seasoning --- it's pretty versatile. (If I need to cook the bacon to make this dish, I just bake it on my broiler pan in a 325° F oven for about 20 min. while I'm working on the oninos and potatoes.)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 large russet potato, peeled and diced
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1⁄2 large bell pepper, diced
- 6 slices cooked bacon, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1 1⁄2 cups monterey jack cheese, grated
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 6 eggs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
- salt & pepper
