Warning:  Not intended for those on "Low Cholesterol" diets.  You have been warned!

1 pound Bacon
1 large onion
8 to 12 eggs
2 to 4 potatoes or Frozen French Fries about 1/2 a bag
Grated Cheddar about 1 cup or more if you really like things cheesy
The range in ingredients is because Jerry likes more eggs, and I like more fries, onions, cheese, and other stuff, especially bacon. 

Fry 1 pound of bacon
I fry mine in the oven on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees.  It stays flat, and I don't have to turn it that way.  Wonderful.  With the way my family eats bacon, this is indeed wonderful.  They can go through 2 pounds in five minutes.  Not kidding.
Drain on paper towels and set aside.  Post a guard, or you won't have any left for the Calamity!
French Fries:  You can use frozen fries, steak fries are what the recipe originally called for.  However, at my house we do ever thing the hard way and from scratch.  But feel free to use frozen, Real potatoes and freshly fried are so much better.
Peel and slice 2 to 4 potatoes like french fries.  Fry in a cast iron skillet.
Drain on paper towels and set aside and allow to cool.
In a bowl scramble 8 to 12 eggs.  Salt and pepper.
Chop a large onion.
Place some bacon grease in a large skillet, heat it until hot.  Place french fries (even the frozen ones) and the onions in the bacon grease and cook until the onions are clear. 
Pour scrambled eggs over the onions and fries and cook until done.  Crumble bacon over the top, stir in.  Add grated cheddar and stir until melted.
Serve immediately.
Also good cooked over a campfire.

Breakfast for Supper


First place one pound of bacon on a baking sheet, the slices can touch but not overlap.  Put it in the oven at 400 degrees.  Cook until desired doneness.  I like mine crispy, all but burned.
Now plug in your waffle iron.  Mix the waffles.
Waffles  (from Joy of Cooking)
Mix together
2 cups flour
2 tsp Double acting Baking Powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp of sugar, plus a little extra if you like them sweet
Beat well
3 eggs
7 tbsp melted butter (use real butter, not that plastic stuff)
1 1/2 - 2 cups of milk
A splash of vanilla
Mix well.
Pour into hot waffle iron.
Remove when crisp and reheat waffle iron and repeat.

Crack 2-3 eggs per person into a bowl.
Beat well, until frothy.  Beat, beat, beat, take out your frustrations.
Heat a skillet with a little bacon grease from the bacon.
Use a small skillet.
Pour enough eggs into the hot skillet enough to cover the pan and not too thick.
Salt and pepper.
As the eggs begin to firm and are not quite done on top, turn them over in one piece.
Add cheese, crumbled bacon or leftover ham, onions, tomatoes, whatever floats your boat.  Fold half of the eggs over on top of the other.  Turn over if necessary to finish cooking.

Drain bacon on paper towels. 
Heat syrup in the microwave or a pan of boiling water. 
Slice fresh oranges, apples (core them), and bananas in half.
Yummy.  Breakfast for supper.
