Breakfast Casserole..Or..Cowboy Surprise

This is a great dish for breakfast for several people. We were attending a rodeo twenty years ago, with our 5th wheel, along with our grandson. I misjudged the oven in the camper and its ability to produce. I waited and waited and waited, and the casserole wasn’t done. Finally, it was ready. My grandson commented, “We could just call this “Cowboy Surprise”…and so we do…every year on Christmas morning for our family breakfast..

2 packages shredded potatoes

1 onion-shredded

1 green pepper-shredded

2 dozen scrambled eggs

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

2 lb chopped, cooked bacon/or sausage/or ham

Mix together, bake in LARGE oblong cake pan. Line pan with aluminum or parchment paper for easier cleanup.

450 Degrees 45 minutes Serves 10…

Scrambled eggs tend to continue cooking after removal from the oven..don’t wait until they look finished or they’ll be dry.

Good luck with your Cowboy Surprise. It’s pretty tasty. And…the memories get better every year.

The future is right ahead of me. At the age of 84, all new projects are interesting.Memories and friends of the past are with me every day. I love to share my thoughts along with comments and opinions (of course) of this day and today's times and challenges. Photography is my hobby. Although I haven't done many photos of people, I've found there are photo challenges in every direction. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in 1953, college was of no interest to me. My Dad used to say, "some folks get a college education and may still not have enough sense to come in out of the rain." That's always been enough for me because I do, have that much sense, about the rain. I have learned one important fact about life. Old isn't as old as I always thought it was.
