Egg Surprise

I love the Sorted videos on YouTube.  This one makes my mouth water every time...!/recipes/eggsurprise/  DH isn't a big fan of cooked veggies, so I make my own version.

Egg Surprise:

4 potatoes
2-4 tbsp oil
4 eggs

Dice potatoes.  Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat.
Add potatoes to skillet and cook until soft.
Crack eggs on top of potatoes.  Cover with lid.
Cook until eggs are white and are no longer runny.
Serve with bacon!!  Because bacon makes any dish better!!

{As you can see, I ate most of the bacon while I was cooking...}

I love making this for brunch.  If DH isn't around, I add green peppers, onions, and sometimes squash.  This recipe is quick! and cheap!


  1. I can't believe he does not like peppers and onions in it! What is he thinking, that is the best part. Great recipe. :)

  2. I know, right? No pepper in anything... I'm so hungry for stuffed peppers now that I'm thinking about it...

  3. Yum! I've started making things like this for dinner lately, it's so quick and cheap and yummy. This looks really good!

  4. It is yummy :) Eggs were the first thing I learned to cook!

  5. oh, trick I use when I am in a hurry, I cut the peppers up in bite size pieces, brown meat, add onions, can of rotel, and rice cook it in a skillet till rice is done, and serve. I get impatient waiting for it to cook in the oven and started making it like this when Owen was a newborn and I had to cook at any chance i had whether I was hungry or not. Easy to re-heat too. Guess it would make a good freezer meal.
