Patata y tocino lucha de huevo aka...Potato, Bacon and Egg Scramble

Gidgit Graham


If you don't have time to cube potatoes, use purchased refrigerated cubed potatoes instead such as potatoes O'Brian. Also add your favorite cheese to really kick it up as well as a salsa or Jalapeno for heat!
Serve with Tortillas for the more Mexican feel or toast and no salsa for the gringos! :o)

I found this recipe in an old Betty Crocker cookbook. So all the credit goes to BC...but I tweaked it to make it my own! ;)
