Country Breakfast

Country Breakfast

I recently shared one of my grandmother’s stand-by recipes: German Potato Salad. Here’s another one of her favorites! Mom Mom (Catherine) was a ‘meat & potatoes’ cook…she loved serving potatoes since a little goes a long way and there were many mouths to feed! I’ve taken her Country Breakfast recipe and adapted it for four servings. It’s hearty and filling and a great weekend breakfast!

Country Breakfast
6 slices bacon, diced
1 tablespoon butter
4 medium potatoes, peeled & diced into cubes
1 cup chopped green peppers
1 cup chopped onions
1 teaspoon salt
fresh ground pepper
4 eggs, beaten with 2 tablespoons water
1 cup shredded Alpine-style cheese (or Gruyere)

In a deep skillet, cook diced bacon until crisp. Remove from skillet and reserve. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon fat. In same skillet, heat the bacon fat with the butter. Add the diced potatoes, green peppers and onions. Cook on medium to medium-high heat 20-25 minutes until lightly browned; stirring occasionally. Pour the beaten eggs over the cooked potatoes in the skillet.

Cover skillet and cook until eggs are set. Sprinkle with the cheese and heat until cheese melts. Top with bacon and serve immediately. Every bite is creamy and delicious!
