My daughter Jessica came up with the name for this delicious, one dish recipe. It can be served for breakfast lunch or dinner. Plus it can be served hot or cold (no worries!). I don't have a fritatta pan, so I used an oven safe skillet.
We chose to eat it warm for dinner, with some sour cream and Tabasco sauce on the side. Yum yum! It was perfect! I individually wrapped the leftover portions in tin foil and kept them in the fridge. They were easy to grab on the way out the door the next day. So give this "problem free philosophy" a try!
1 small bag of your favorite type of potatoes
salt and pepper, to taste
15 slices of bacon (plus more for garnish if you like)
1 dozen eggs
2.5 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup minced fresh chives (or 1/3 cup minced scallions, if you prefer)
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Wash and cut up potatoes into quarters, and toss with a generous sprinkle of olive oil, salt and pepper. Then place on large baking sheet and bake for about 30-40 minutes. Let cool.
In the meantime, dice bacon into 1/2 inch slices and cook in fritatta pan or oven safe skillet (non stick if possible) until crisp, about 10 minutes. Separate some for garnish if you made extra.
Oven should be set on broil (HIGH) and then you can add the rest of the shredded cheese on top, as well as the bacon reserved for garnish. Then place your oven safe skillet in the oven, and watch closely, until nothing on the top is runny and the cheese is a nice golden brown color. (Be sure to sniff the sizzling bacon as you remove the skillet from the oven!)
(Oh, and don't forget to say "Rub a dub dub, Thanks for the Grub" first! )
