  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 4 teaspoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cup milk

  • 8 ounce sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (2 cups)

  • 3 pound russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced*

  • 1 ½ cup chopped fresh broccoli

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 8 eggs

  • 2 tablespoon milk

  • 6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled

  • 1 large tomato, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 325°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.
