Country Skillet Breakfast~Improv Cooking Challenge

Today is Improv Cooking Challenge day! The two ingredients for this month are potatoes and cheese!!! My first thought?~Where to start? Those two ingredients open up an avalanche of ideas!! I had both of these ingredients on hand, so I started pulling groceries from the fridge, looking at what I had, and I ended up with
a country skillet breakfast that was easy to throw together and delicious!

Country Skillet Breakfast
1 Potato
1 Piece of Bacon
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Shredded Fiesta Blend Cheese
1/2 Roma Tomato
1/4 cup Onion
Microwave your potato for approx. 4-5 minutes, 
until cooked. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Start your bacon cooking.
While the potato and bacon are doing their thing,
dice your onion and tomato.
When your potato is done, let it cool for a moment
or two, then chop it into bite size pieces.
Put the onions and potatoes in a frying pan, .....
and cook on medium high until the potatoes start to get
brown on the sides.
Once your bacon is down,
chop it into bite size or even smaller, pieces.
Fry your eggs. I love my eggs over easy, and with this dish,
over easy works great, because the egg drips down
through the potatoes and bacon.
While your eggs are cooking,
 place the potatoes and onion mix in the
cast iron skillet.
Add the tomato and bacon pieces.
Once your egg is done,
Place the egg on top of the potato, onion,
tomato, and bacon mix. Cover the egg with the cheese.
Add more if you like it really cheesy!
Heat until the cheese melts.
Top with a scoop of sour cream and a slice of avocado!
(or whatever is your favorite)
Serve immediately!
