  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup diced potato
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook the bacon in an 8 inch skillet until crisp, over medium low heat.  Remove to a paper towel lined plate, and pour out most of the grease.  Add a tablespoon of butter to the pan and cook the onion and potatoes until the onion is starting to brown and the potatoes are tender, about ten minutes.
  • Mix the eggs, salt, pepper, cayenne, and scallions in a medium mixing bowl.  Add the cooked bacon into the egg mixture and mix.  Pour into the skillet over the cooked onion and potatoes.  Bake for 10 minutes, then top with shredded cheddar and bake a few minutes more.  Serve immediately, directly from the pan.


You can add diced pepper, sweet or hot, to the onion for extra flavor and color.
