This can be made with any type of cooked meats, the mushrooms and onions may be left out and a light sprinkling of cheese could be added over the potatoes before the eggs are added. This is a delicious, hearty one pan meal that can be tweaked to fit into anyone's morning. Leave all meat out and make it vegetarian.

Ingredients

BASIC RECIPE

3 medium
potatoes
12
eggs
2 c
three alarm pepper jack cheese (or your favorite)
8 oz
cooked sausage, ham or any meat
**salt and pepper to taste

ADD ON OPTIONS

mushrooms, sliced
onions, sliced or diced
peppers, sliced diced or rings

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash potatoes, you can leave skin on, or peel. Slice potatoes into THIN rounds. Put in bowl and drizzle olive oil over and toss well to coat all potatoes.
2
Put just enough olive oil to lightly cover bottom of an OVEN proof skillet. Layer potatoes in skillet (I use a 12" skillet). Salt & pepper potatoes.
3
If adding onions, peppers or mushrooms, or any other veggies, place them over the potatoes, or egg the to the eggs or the topping. Cover with lid and cook over low-med low heat for 25-30 min. till a fork easily goes into potatoes. DO NOT STIR during cooking time.
4
In separate skillet, cook meat if raw, breaking it up as it cooks. For precooked meat, slice, dice or shred.
5
Check potatoes for doneness after 20 min. by sticking a fork in them, if the fork goes in easily, that are ready. If the potatoes are still tough, cook a little longer and check again. Break eggs into a bowl, whisk well. Add cilantro or veggies at this point.
6
When potatoes are done, top with meat, add 1 1/2 c. of cheese on top of potatoes, then pour eggs on top of that. Add a little more cheese on top if desired and/or veggies. Place in a 350 degree oven for about 25-35 min. You want to cook just long enough for the eggs to firm up. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of skillet you use.
7
When eggs are done, remove pan and allow to cool at least 15-20 min. before cutting, this will make it much easier to remove from skillet after slicing and it won't fall apart. This dish is also delish cold.
