Bacon n Potato Breakfast Bake

OK who loves brunch?  I do!!  And since it's Easter, why not celebrate all things EGG-related!  Last weekend I created a really yummy breakfast bake that included two of my favourite things: bacon and potatoes!

Super easy, though takes some time and prep work:

Bacon n Potato Breakfast Bake
3 slices bacon, chopped
10 baby potatoes, sliced thinly
4 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
2 green onions sliced
4 eggs + 1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup Italian Cheese Blend grated cheese

Preheat oven to 400degrees.  In a large non-stick, oven-safe skillet, fry bacon over medium-high heat until crisp.  Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.

Add the potato slices to the bacon fat and fry until browned - about 10 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until fragrant - careful to not burn the garlic!

In another bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, seasonings, green onions and half of the cheese.

Slowly pour into the skillet and fold in the bacon bits.  Allow the egg to start to firm up and using a spatula, scrape the edges of the skillet to allow for some of the more liquidy egg to dribble into the cracks.  I can't explain it, but you'll know it when you see it!!

When it's firm around the edges and just starting to set up in the middle, but still runny, top with the remaining half of cheese and chuck into the oven for about 20 minutes.

Check to make sure the egg is cooked thru (esp in the centre) and remove from oven.  Slice into quaters and serve!!  Super yum!
