Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon; crumble and set aside. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons of drippings. Add potatoes, green pepper, onion, salt and pepper to drippings; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are browned and tender, about 15 minutes. Make six wells in the potato mixture; break one egg into each well. Cover and cook on low heat for 8-10 minutes or until eggs are completely set. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon.

Easy too make, my husband love it. I wasn't it crazy about it needs more seasoning.

Great recipe! I've made this many times, using shredded hashbrowns, scrambling the eggs, and adding red peppers, mushrooms and sausage. Can't go wrong with this recipe!

I have a huge skillet, but my hashbrowns just weren't cooking. I ended up pulling out my griddle to finish the dish, which turned out pretty good. The second time I made it I used my griddle f...

Great comfort food. If you prepare this in a cast-iron skillet (recommended) be careful with how high the heat is. The pan can burn your bacon quickly. I was afraid the bottom of the potatoes...

I have made this for years. It was a Saturday morning staple at our house. I use sausage not bacon. For potatoes I use frozen potatoes O'Brien. Saves chopping the onions and peppers. The kids us...

This is so delicious! I didn't have any hash browns, so I just shred some potatoes and added some seasoned salt. Very good.

Great recipe platform! I used what I had in the veggie drawer, mushrooms, onions, garlic and cilantro. I also added some spoon fulls of salsa to the mixture and fresh ground black pepper. It tur...

We loved this breakfast. With only two of us it was easy to adjust. I don't like green peppers and left them out. The morning I fixed this I didn't have any cheddar cheese so I used the mozza...

Very tasty but couldn't get my potatoes to brown. Followed the recipe exactly and they turned into mush. I will make it again but find another way to cook the potatoes.
