When I was growing up and when we didn't have much money, my Mom would make this for our Breakfast. It was't fancy, but it was good and filled our bellies. To make this even heartier, she would serve this on the side Buttermilk Biscuits and Pepper Gravy.Now this was a meal that would stay with you :)The time for peeling the potatoes is included in the prep time.If you like you can add more meat.The amount of salt and pepper you use is up to you.I had this recipe posted on another site,but I wanted to share it here.
