Ingredients

15 slices bacon
lean, thick-sliced, ~ 1 pound, use salt-reduced
1 each onions
1 pound potatoes
1 cup cheddar cheese
grated
8 large eggs

Directions

Cut the bacon slices into pieces. Cook until crispy and most of the fat has been rendered. Drain on paper towels. Discard the fat.

Peel the potatoes, then grate them. To prevent the grated potatoes from discoloring while you prepare the other ingredients, you can put them into a bowl of cold water. When you're ready to use them, be sure to drain well and squeeze them dry.

Grate the cheese. Mince the onion. Butter a large pie plate or other shallow baking dish.

Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃).

Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add all the other ingredients and stir.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pie plate or baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, or until the eggs and potatoes are cooked and the top is golden brown.

Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.

NOTES:

  • You can prepare part of this ahead. You can cook the bacon, grate the cheese and potatoes and mince the onion the night before. Store all these things separately in the refrigerator, covering the potatoes with water. Then in the morning just mix it all up and bake it.

Very good for something so simple. To reduce the fat I cut the amount of bacon in half and made sure to drain it well, discarding the fat. Then I used low-salt bacon to cut down on the sodium. I also added quite a bit 1/4 teaspoon or so of fresh ground black pepper to the mix and cooked it in a pie plate. Turned out very well indeed even with the modifications to make it a bit healthier.

At 58 grams of fat and almost 3000 mg of sodium, this recipe has to hail from the south. Heart attack on a plate!

It's not quite as bad as the nutrition facts state. The nutrition facts assume that the bacon it _not_ drained of fat which significantly inflates the fat and sodium content. If you were to cut the bacon amount in half (which I did in the photo), drain and discard the excess fat (which I did too) and use low sodium bacon the result is much improved and highly recommended. Those changes would reduce the amount of fat from the bacon alone by ~70%.

We just updated the nutrition calculations to account for the discarding of the bacon fat. The nutrition facts are much more accurate now.

Could you also use a turkey bacon or turkey sausage to assist with the sodium and make it a bit healthier?
