- Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crispy, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain on paper towels; reserve most of the bacon fat in skillet.
- Reduce heat to medium. Cook and stir onions until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes; toss to coat evenly in bacon fat. Pour in water and cover skillet with a large lid. Cook, checking occasionally, until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Add green onions, garlic, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper.
- Make 4 wells in the potato mixture using a wooden spoon, revealing the bottom of the skillet. Crack an egg into each well; season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle cooked bacon and Cheddar cheese over the entire skillet. Replace lid; cook until egg whites are set and yolks are still runny, about 5 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- If potatoes start to brown too quickly, add more water.

Made as written except that I didn't need the water. Great breakfast for dinner recipe! Only let the eggs go for as long as the recipe states. They still looked too runny to me so I let them go ...
I have been making this for years. I have used sausage or ham instead of bacon, they both work well. On some occasions I have pre-boiled the potatoes so that they only need to cook bit and brown...
I love this recipe. I had some leftover steamed broccoli from the night before & tossed that in when I added the eggs. Great for a quick Sat. am brunch.
I used sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. Also added sliced mushrooms. Was very good. Cooked about 6.5 minutes after added eggs. They were just the way I like them
I made this for two persons using just one med. potato but since we always two eggs for breakfast I basically kept everything else the same. I do however, dice my potatoes and soak in water ove...
I really liked this recipe. My only change was to add a bit more water than the recipe calls for to make sure I could get the potatoes soft enough. I reduced the recipe for 2 people and used 1/4...
Excellent! Put a bit more water in as it cooked out but that was the only change.
