I love recipes that are wide open to interpretation. This one is just such. You could add anything: onions, green peppers, fresh tomatoes, salsa, mushrooms, cheese of any sort, spinach, broccoli, chilies, ham, sausage, bacon, leftover chili, hamburger, anything you have leftover in the frige. That is the "surprise" in Tater Surprise: (basic cost= $1.72)
3 cups frozen shredded potatoes (32oz on sale $.99 used 1/3 = $.33)
4 eggs, beaten (on sale $.80/dozen = $.26)
4 slices deli ham, chopped (maybe $1)
1/2 onion (3 lbs for $1.49 = $.13)
3 Tbls olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
Heat oil in skillet, add potatoes and onion. Cover and cook 5-7 minutes on medium. Uncover and flip potatoes. Add ham. Cover and cook 5-7 more minutes. Uncover, pour beaten egg all over, cover and cook 2-3 more minutes or until egg is set. Season with salt & pepper.
