Cheap Basic Skillet Potatoes

My boys had baseball practice today and one thing I like to make is fresh hash brown potatoes for them. They come in starving hungry and eat every bite I fix. Ree at the Pioneer Woman cooks them up the same way I do. Take a look at her fabulous pictures and you will want to grab the grub and run. Hop on over and see what I mean. You gotta use the bacon grease in these as thats the best way to make them. Why? Like Ree says ‘Because they taste good, thats why’!

Now my camera is down but along with the skillet taters I made the fastest omelet in the west.

3 Eggs

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 Zip Lock Steamer bag

Scramble the eggs in a bowl with a fork till light yellow. Pour the eggs in the steamer bag, seal and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes or until just set. Place on a plate and top with the cheese. You can also split the cheese up placing half in the steamer bag. In fact you can add just about anything to the steamer bag like diced cooked vegetables, salsa, fried bacon and my favorite chopped chives. Serve with the taters and you got a quick meal! And they left nothing, not one drop!!

Did I mention these are cheap?? Real cheap. I got a 10lb bag of potatoes for $1.00 and the eggs for the same!!
