Potato, Bacon, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Bowl

I like breakfast bowls, but I don’t like all the sodium in the kind you get from the frozen breakfast isle in the grocery store. Not to mention the cheese doesn’t always seem to melt right. It sometimes ends up in one big glob. So when I want one, I like to make my own. I usually put bacon in mine, but sausage is good as well. You can use what ever meat you like.

Here’s what you need:

*canola oil

*frozen diced potatoes (you can use fresh potatoes, but this is what I had on hand)

*bacon ( I usually about 2 slices per portion…. I love my bacon )

*eggs ( I used 1 egg per portion, but if you like more egg than potato, then use 2)

*shredded cheese (I used a cheddar Colby Jack blend)

*salt and cracked pepper; to taste

In a small or medium size skillet add just enough oil to fry the potatoes; heat to medium high heat. Add potatoes and salt to taste.

Cook until potatoes are crispy and lightly browned on the outside, about 10 minutes; stir occasionally.

While potatoes are cooking, cook bacon until crispy. Drain on paper towels; crumble into small pieces and set aside.

Crack an egg onto the potatoes.

Add cracked pepper and stir to mix the egg with the potatoes.

Next, add the bacon while trying not to eat it all before adding it to the egg potato mixture.

I will admit, starting out there was more bacon. What can I say, I was weak. Mix the bacon into the potato egg mixture.

Throw in the cheese.

Mix all together and cook for a few minutes longer until cheese melts.

Place in bowls and serve.
