This is a recipe my mother used to make when we were camping. It's warm, hearty, and a good way to start a cold day in the morning, camping or otherwise. Serve in a bowl with toast and coffee for a warming and hearty breakfast.

  • Return skillet to the stove and add olive oil; heat over medium heat. Add potatoes, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until browned and somewhat crispy, about 10 minutes.

  • Mix onion into potatoes and cook until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Return bacon to the skillet; cook and stir until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Pour eggs over potato mixture; cook and stir until eggs are set, 5 to 6 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Butter can be used in place of the olive oil, if desired.

Very tasty, simple breakfast recipe. It’s easy to add whatever you like to this one. I added bell pepper, garlic, tomatoes, a little cheese on top, and hot sauce. Read More

When I added the liquid eggs to the already cooked mix, it made a bit of a mush mess. I’d recommend doing the eggs separate and then adding together later. Also, I added green pepper for flavor and color. I used healthy turkey bacon instead of regular bacon. It was delicious. Read More

Loved it. I took the suggestion to add cheese at the end to melt on top. Some chopped green onions were also a good topper. For those having trouble with the eggs, I pushed the potatoes to one side and cooked the eggs part way on the other side of the pan before I mixed them. Worked great. Read More

Everyone really likes this. I don’t use any oil at all, I wait to drain the grease after the potatoes and onions are fully cooked. I then drain the vast majority of the grease and add bacon and the eggs. I think I would like to add some fresh sliced mushrooms to this next time (but my son wouldn’t eat it if I did.) Other than that, the recipe is great as is and it’s pretty easy to make. Read More

Delicious! I used coconut oil in place of the olive, and added some Muenster cheese at the end, just long enough for it to melt in. This really helped add flavor I think. Next time I’ll garnish with green onions. Read More

Made it exactly, except I sprinkled thyme and Lawry’s Seasoned Salt on my potatoes. Also, after I put it in a bowl, I sprinkled shredded cheese, squirted some Sriracha all over, and topped with sliced avocado. So yummy!!! Read More
