  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, red bell pepper, garlic and onion, and cook, stirring occasionally until potatoes are tender. Cover the pan with a lid for faster cooking.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line the bottom of an 8 or 9 inch cake pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Fry bacon in a skillet over medium heat, or cook in the microwave, until crisp. Drain, crumble and set aside. Sprinkle the cheese in the bottom of the prepared pan. Sprinkle bacon crumbles evenly over the cheese. Scoop the potato mixture into the pan so it is evenly distributed. Whisk together eggs and milk with a fork, and season with a little salt and pepper. Pour evenly over the food in the pan.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, just until the egg is set. Remove from the oven and run a knife around the outer edge. Flip onto a serving plate, and remove the parchment paper. Serve and enjoy.

This is my recipe...the key to non sticking cheese is parchment paper..not wax paper...I have never had a problem with the cheese sticking :)

My family loves this. We like to have "Breakfast" for dinner. This is perfect for that. I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan.

I changed the order of the ingredients and did not flip over the "cake" after it was done. I used sliced Simply Potatoes, fried to a golden brown, as the crust. Then I topped with the sauteed ...

Awesome! The only thing I did differently was instead of using olive oil, I just cooked the bacon first and used the bacon grease to saute the veggies. There was so much grease that I had to s...

I really liked this and was impressed with the presentation. I did not have any troubles with the cheese sticking to the parchment paper. I did a few things differently: I used one more egg and ...
