Sheepherder's Breakfast Recipe

Sheepherder's Breakfast Recipe

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 on to them. —Pauletta Bushnell, Albany, Oregon

"quick and easy to prepare. I added some mushrooms and bell peppers to better suit our taste, topped it with a little salsa, and scaled it down for two people; it turned out great. My husband loved it."

"I made this dish this weekend for some company that was in town. While I subbed bacon for sausage (guest preference) the recipe was great! Everyone loved it and I can't believe how easy. Just added some cut fruit and what a wonderful breakfast! It would make a great "breakfast for supper" dish."

"I also have made this, except with the scrambled eggs. [email protected], I was wondering the same thing. With 8 eggs and 10 servings, 2 somebody's are not getting an egg . LoL"

"I scaled this down for two of us. I will use the entire recipe when the family is here for breakfast. A local restaurant serves a similar breakfast with scrambled eggs. They call it "The Mess" It's a good mess!! '"

"This reminds me of a dish my mom made. I grew up in Texas so I spiced it up a bit with some diced jalape?os."

"My family and I neither liked nor disliked this recipe. I had to modify it because the potatoes stuck to the pan. I scrambled the eggs and poured them on the hash brown mixture."

"My husband has been making this when he went elk hunting for as long as I've known him and we have been married 55 years! He scrambles the eggs instead of sunny side up. He even taught my dad how to make it over 20 years ago on a hunting trip."

"I guess my skillet wasn't really big enough for this, but I scaled it down a bit and it was SOOOO good! Will definitely be making this often!"
