You might want a change from the standard eggs and bacon breakfast, but you don’t have to give up on the comforting sound and smell of breakfast in a frying pan. This one-pan-wonder breakfast will give you something a little different whilst satisfying the frying pan craving. This recipe doesn’t have to be confined to breakfast; it makes a great simple supper dish too.
- 4 medium potatoes peeled and diced into 1.5cm cubes
- 2 tbsp (30 ml) oil
- 200g diced bacon
- 2 spring onions, sliced
- 4 eggs
- Generous handful of grated cheese – cheddar, gouda or mozzarella work well
Heat the oil in a frying pan (cast iron works best here) over a medium heat and fry the diced potatoes. Stir occasionally and cook until golden and crispy. If possible cover the pan with a lid between stirrings to speed up cooking.
Add the diced bacon and fry, stirring occasionally until crisp.
Stir through the spring onions and season with pepper (you can add salt too, but remember that the bacon is already quite salty in flavour)
Make four holes in the potato mixture and crack an egg into each well. Scatter the grated cheese around the eggs, over the potato mix. Cook until the eggs are cooked to your liking and serve immediately, because you’ll be starving by then!
