Farmers are thought of as having big appetites and simple tastes, so a hearty breakfast of potatoes, ham, bacon and eggs, all cooked into one dish, seems appropriate.
4 strips of bacon
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup diced ham
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sliced green onion
- In a large pot over medium-high heat bring plenty of cold salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and boil for 30 minutes until tender but still firm. Remove from heat. Rinse under cold water, and set aside to cool enough to handle. Peel and slice; set aside.
- In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until transparent and limp. Add potato slices and cook until lightly browned 5 to 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl beat eggs with milk and salt. Stir in ham and tomato. Pour over potatoes in skillet. Cook until eggs are set, about 8 minutes. Garnish with green onions to serve.
