This delicious one pan dish has all you’ve ever wanted for breakfast: bacon, eggs, potatoes and cheese! It’s definitely one of my current breakfast favorites. I just love the bacon flavor in potatoes here.
I have never been the kind of person to have cereal or sweet type of breakfast, I want something that has bacon, egg and potato in it! In other words, I need protein with some fats and starches! And if you’re anything like me, my favorite breakfast protein is egg and my favorite breakfast fat is bacon!
Look at all this bacon – this dish is loaded with goodness! I don’t know how I managed to take the pictures at all before the entire thing disappeared.
How do you get the most flavor out of bacon, egg, potato combination? First, sauté an onion over medium heat to create a subtle sweet flavor to this dish. If you’re in a hurry to have breakfast , you can certainly omit the onion. However, it adds too much flavor and so easy to cook, that it’s certainly worth the extra 10 minutes. And you may not realize how much it can affect the way your food tastes until you use it.
So, not surprisingly this dish has two kinds of onions: sweet onion and a couple of green onions.
While the potatoes are cooking, you can bake the bacon in the oven for 10 minutes at 400F.
Then add garlic and green onions to further accentuate the flavors in the dish.
Once the potatoes are browned, it’s time to add the eggs to the skillet. I used four, but I don’t see any reasons why you can’t use more or less than that.
Chop the bacon slices and sprinkle them all over the skillet, then add cheese and cook the eggs to your liking.
This bacon egg potato recipe is for 4 servings however my husband and I finished the entire pan together in one sitting, it was THAT good.
My suggestion is to serve the egg surrounded by this bacon potato extravaganza just like this:
