My Grandma Mabel Kennedy Sullivan said this was a favorite recipe of her husband Frank "Barney" Sullivan & in the summer & fall they always served this with home canned chili sauce, very thin slices of onions, thick slices of tomatoes, toast & jam.

Great Grandma Sullivan use to fry in bacon grease, my grandmother liked to use butter or margarine, I do both ways.

A one pan recipe, a hearty Irish meal !

We make this for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Add more or less ingredients depending on how you like it.

Easy and flavor filled... my family loves it!
