Farmer's Breakfast

My grandmother used to make this for my granddad. She always believed in hearty breakfasts. I only make this about once a year because it is not very healthy but nonetheless, it is delicious.

    Fantastic breakfast!!! I made this, scaled back, as written. Loved all the flavors added from the onion and green pepper and that it was a one pan meal. I used a large red skinned potato that I microwaved but can see throwing in extra potatoes when we are having baked potatoes for dinner too. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for your win in the football pool, congrats again.

    This was sooo good! I loved the combined flavors. I did leave out the green peppers since my family doesn't like them. Instead I garnished with a bit of parsley for color. I also used frozen Southern Style Hash Browns to cut down on the prep time. Made for Farm Cooking with Andi.

    I love this breakfast. I use turkey bacon or turkey sausage when I make this. I followed someone else's suggestion & always keep cooked potatoes in my freezer. I definately make this often as it is versatile.
