- Dutch oven
- Cutting board
- 6 oz. bacon
- 4 red potatoes
- 1 onion
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- salt & pepper
Dice bacon and fry in a dutch oven over medium eat. Remove pieces as they begin to crisp; drain on paper towels. While bacon is cooking, dice potatoes and onion. Once the last of the bacon is cooked, pour off most of the grease, reserving 3-4 tablespoons. Add potatos and onion into the reserved bacon grease and season with salt and pepper.
Keep the dutch oven lidded while the onion and potatoes, removing only every once in awhile to stir to prevent sticking. Cook until tender. Scrape potatoes and onions to the side, and crack eggs directly into the free area of the dutch oven, whisking and scraping with spatula to scramble. Once the eggs are scrambled and cooked through, return all of the cooked bacon to the pot. Add cheddar cheese and stir to combine. Serve warm.
As soon as you’ve got breakfast cleaned up, you can have dinnertime squared away before everyone has their shoes and bug repellant on. Wipe out the Dutch oven, throw in three ingredients, and enjoy the rest of your day! Dinnertime doesn’t get better – or easier – than this!
- Dutch oven or Crock Pot
- Can opener
- Cutting board and knife
- 5 pounds beef stew meat
- 1 can Campbell’s Golden Mushroom soup
- 1 can Campbell’s French Onion soup
Combine all three ingredients in a Dutch oven or Crock Pot, cover, and place in oven at 250* for 6 hours. Throw together a salad or grill some corn on the cob just before you sit down to eat.
