Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, red bell pepper, garlic and onion, and cook, stirring occasionally until potatoes are tender. Cover the pan with a lid for faster cooking.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

  • Fry bacon in a skillet over medium heat, or cook in the microwave, until crisp. Drain, crumble and set aside. Sprinkle the cheese in the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle bacon crumbles evenly over the cheese. Scoop the potato mixture into the pan so it is evenly distributed. Whisk together eggs and milk with a fork, and season with a little salt and pepper. Pour evenly over the food in the pan.

  • Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, just until the egg is set. Remove from the oven and run a knife around the outer edge. Flip onto a serving plate, and remove the parchment paper. Serve and enjoy.

I have been making this dish for a long time now! It is wonderful! I do add 2 extra eggs and 1/2 a cup of milk. I have left the peppers out as well if I didnt have any on hand. I also slice the potatoes with my grater, they work out much better this way. All in all and excellent dish when a few modifications are done! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Read More

Large baking potatoes might be the wrong description...I used 3 large ones and it was too many potatoes. The eggs wouldn't set as the dish was too thick. I dumped it onto a cookie sheet finally and finished it that way. It was tasty but use smaller potatoes or a larger pan! Read More

Definitely a keeper! Great for substitutions too. Used some thawed french fries in place of diced potatoes. Took advice of earlier poster and cooked bacon first and used bacon drippings to saute onion red pepper garlic and potatoes. Parchment paper is a must for a non-stick flip. Mine worked perfectly. Can't wait to put it in the weekend rotation! Thanks! Read More

My family loves this. We like to have "Breakfast" for dinner. This is perfect for that. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan. Read More

I changed the order of the ingredients and did not flip over the "cake" after it was done. I used sliced Simply Potatoes fried to a golden brown as the crust. Then I topped with the sauteed onions pepper and garlic then the bacon and cheese. I used 6 eggs and 1/2 cup half 'n' half. Delicious! Next time I will lightly salt the potatoes after they have fried. Read More

Awesome! The only thing I did differently was instead of using olive oil I just cooked the bacon first and used the bacon grease to saute the veggies. There was so much grease that I had to soak some of it up with a paper towel after it came out of the oven. When I make this again I will use the bacon grease instead of olive oil but perhaps discard half of what the bacon yielded. Regardless it was awesome. Definately a keeper! Read More

I really liked this and was impressed with the presentation. I did not have any troubles with the cheese sticking to the parchment paper. I did a few things differently: I used one more egg and next time I think I may use even more eggs to make it a little more moist (maybe add a little more milk too). I thinly sliced the potatoes and left out the peppers. I used garlic powder and onion powder in the potatoes for a little milder garlic/onion flavor. I only used 8 pieces of bacon which I thought was plenty. I baked it in a 8x8 square pan and added a little more grated cheese after I poured the egg over. All in all this was tasty unique and filling. Read More
