    List of Ingredients

    1 lb bacon, thick-sliced and lean
    1 onion
    1 lb baking potatoes
    1/2 lb cheddar cheese
    8 eggs


    (1) Cut the bacon slices into square pieces. Fry the
    pieces until well-cooked, then drain on paper

    (2) 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

    (3) Grate the cheese. Mince the onion.

    (4) Butter a 9x13 inch shallow baking dish. Preheat
    the oven to 350 deg. F.

    (5) Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Add all the other
    ingredients and stir. Pour the mixture into the
    baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for
    about 45 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked.
    Serve hot, warm or at room temperature.

    It really does make a difference if you use good meaty bacon
    for this. I find the best bacon at my local butcher shop.

    You can prepare part of this ahead. I think egg dishes are
    better if they haven't been refrigerated. So if you want to
    work 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.
