This one I am going for a large chunk. You can vary the size. I also had 3 differernt kinds of potatoes from last nights community BBQ where we had lots of different foods. Russet, red skin and sweet potatoes. Grandma would never throw anything away like many from the old world so we would get them in a soup or sometimes in a dish like this.


Put some cooking oil in the skillet and heat to medium.
Add the ham or bacon and onions.

Add some jalapeno slices if you want to add some heat. Add the garlic if you like.

After browning the onions and potatoes add the rest of the vegetables.

Some folks then add the eggs and cook them right in the pan with the vegetables.
I like to cook the eggs separate. When you just put the beaten eggs in the skillet with the other vegetables
they sometimes have no identity as eggs and pick up any other dark colors from the bottom of the pan.
An easy way to cook scrambled eggs without getting another pan out is to cook them on 50 % power in the microwave. Depending on your wattage, it should take 2 to 3 minutes for 4 eggs in a glass dish like above.
I spray the dish lightly but it really doesn't stick much at all.

Blend in the eggs with the rest of the ingredients.

Time for Breakfast!

OXO Good Grips Fish Turner  

This is my favorite all purpose turner. It is flexible but strong, and when you lift excess oil falls through. You can get in hard to get places with the angled blade.

Cuisinart 733-30H Chef's Classic Stainless 5-1/2-Quart Saute Pan with Helper Handle and Cover  

I think everyone should have a really nice stainless thick bottomed skillet. This is good quality and great reviews, and stays looking very nice. You will use this for a lifetime.
