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.
