Directions

  1. Cook bacon to desired doneness in a cast iron skillet over the slow burning coals of a campfire. Remove bacon from the skillet and set aside. Stir the potatoes and onion into the hot bacon fat. Cover, and cook until the potatoes are soft, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Crumble the bacon into the potatoes. Stir in the eggs, cover, and cook until set through, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese, and allow to melt before serving.

I'm giving five stars b/c the finished product tasted great. However, I had a problem with it sticking really bad to the skillet. I couldn't just let it sit for the 10-12 minutes or it would have burned badly, even after I reduced the heat. I also had to stir after adding the eggs so it came out as sort of scramble, but the taste was awesome! I will make this again!

This is an excellent dish and can be done in a frying pan on the stove in the same way.

I have made this dish many times over the years. Its a warm, hearty, one pan start to a day outdoors. I use canned potatoes for easy preparation. Another trick is to precook the bacon, if you want the convenience of less refrigeration, smaller space consumption. You do need some of the fat for cooking the potatoes so dont make it too crisp. Happy trails.
