Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 medium russet potatoes
  • 12 large eggs
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • ½ cup green onion (chopped)
  • ½ cup tomato (diced)
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place the pan on the stove over medium heat.
  • Chop the bacon and add it to the pan.
  • While the bacon is frying, cut the potatoes into very thin slices.
  • Once the bacon is crispy, remove it from the pan and set aside. 
  • Pour out any excess bacon grease that is present. A thin layer of grease should be left to prevent the potato crust from sticking, but you don’t need much.
  • Place potato slices in the skillet to form a crust, like this:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs together.  
  • Stir in the shredded cheese, green onion, tomato, salt, and pepper.
  • Crumble the bacon and add it to the egg mixture, then carefully pour the mixture into the skillet over the potatoes.
  • Place skilled in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until set in the center.

Notes

To use two 9 inch pie plates rather than the cast iron skillet prepare exactly the same way, greasing the pie plates with bacon drippings and slicing some of the potato slices in half to fit the shorter sides of the pie pan.
Place the pie plates in the oven and bake for 15-25 minutes, or until set in the center.
