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.
This has been a breakfast favorite when all six of our kids are home since it was first published in TOH. The only change I make is using the whole pound of bacon since we enjoy the flavor of bacon. It's also a good supper dish.
I made this tonight. It was very easy to make and so delicious!!! My boyfriend requested it after I posted it on FaceBook because it looked yummy and fortunately we had everything to make it already. I would recommend this in a heartbeat and kids would love it as well!!!
