Cheesy Potato Bake with Eggs
Ingredients
  • 1  medium  onion, finely chopped
  • 2  tablespoons  butter
  • 4  teaspoons  all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2  cups  milk
  • 8  ounces  sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (2 cups)
  • 3  pounds  russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced*
  • 1 1/2  cups  chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1  tablespoon  vegetable oil
  • 8  eggs
  • 2  tablespoons  milk
  • 6  slices  bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 1  large  tomato, chopped
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium saucepan cook onion in butter over medium heat for 4 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper. Stir in milk; cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheese until melted.

2. In a 3-quart baking dish, layer potatoes, then cheese sauce. Bake, covered, about 55 minutes, until potatoes are tender.

3. In a large skillet, cook broccoli in hot oil over medium heat for 5 minutes, until nearly tender, stirring frequently. In a large bowl, beat together eggs, water, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper. Pour over broccoli in skillet. Cook over medium heat, without stirring, until mixture begins to set on bottom and around edges. Using a spatula, lift and fold partially cooked egg so uncooked portion flows underneath. Cook 2 minutes more or until egg is cooked yet still moist. Spoon over potatoes. Top with bacon and chopped tomato. Serve immediately.
