Sheepherder's Breakfast Recipe

Publisher Photo
My sister-in-law always made this delicious breakfast dish when we were camping. Served with toast, juice and milk or coffee, it's a sure hit with the breakfast crowd! One-dish casseroles like this were a big help while I was raising my nine children...Now I've passed this recipe to them. —Pauletta Bushnell, Albany, Oregon

I do a very similar recipe, but I cook bacon, add hash browns after cooked, then scrambled eggs last - all in one pan w/o draining! We love it and makes a great breakfast burrito filling with cheese added!

Has anyone every made this with scrambled eggs instead of over easy? Just wondering if it can be done and if you cook it longer/different/etc. Thanks!!

My husband and I enjoyed this recipe for dinner. We are vegetarians so I substituted Morning Star soy bacon in the recipe. I will make this recipe again. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Pauletta.

How delicious is this? Was a hit, and a great breakfast for campin.g I didn't use frozen potatoes though, it did take longer to cook but it was fresh. A keeper.

I make this often, when I have leftover ham I chop it and use that instead of bacon. I have also used browned breakfast sausage when I had no bacon or ham.
