DIRECTIONS

  • Start out by microwaving your potatoes as you would for baked potatoes. If you have leftover baked potatoes, you can just use those.
  • Once potatoes are cool enough to touch, cut into large cubes (if you prefer them without the skin, peel first) and set aside.
  • Fry bacon (or sausage) over medium heat in a 12 inch non-stick pan. Remove and set aside on a paper towel to drain. When cool enough, crumble into pieces.
  • Remove grease from pan and discard, but leave a tbs or so of the bacon grease. (If using sausage, remove all grease and add a bit of butter or spray with butter flavor Pam).
  • Add cubed potatoes and salt/pepper to taste and cook over medium for a few minutes until undersides are brown. Flip over, stir in slices onions and smash mixture down a bit with a potato masher or the back of a spoon, so it fills the bottom of the pan.
  • With a spoon, make 4 "holes" in the potatoes, evenly spaced, about 2.5 inches in diameter. If the potatoes are sticking at all or if the pan looks too dry, add a bit of butter to each hole, or a spray of Pam.
  • Crack and drop an egg into each hole and cover pan. You may need to lower the heat a little depending on your stove. Cook covered until the egg whites are mostly set.
  • Remove lid and sprinkle egg whites with crumbled bacon and then with the cheese.
  • Replace cover and cook on low until cheese is melted and eggs are set. I sometimes throw a splash of water at the side of the pan to created steam right before I recover the pan and turn it to low.
  • If it seems as if the underside of the "casserole" is getting overdone, I remove the pan from the heat and leave the lid on for a few minutes, so the top will continue to cook.
