Egg & Potato Scramble

This is my original recipe when I had an abundance of eggs and some leftover ham.

2-3 Tb. butter
2 c. shredded potato
1/2 c. ham, bacon, or sausage
6 eggs
1/4 c. milk, half & half, or cream
1 tsp. salt
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. fresh ground pepper
1/2 c. shredded cheese (I like sharp cheddar)

Melt butter in skillet. Add potatoes and cook for 3-5 minutes until tender; add meat and cook 1-2 minute longer. Combine eggs, milk, salt, & pepper. Pour egg mixture into skillet and scramble with potato & meat. When mostly cooked, add cheese and finish scrambling.
Serves 4

1) Add fresh herbs with egg mixture.
2) Omit meat.
3) Add onion with the potato.
4) Do a breakfast bowl - split a biscuit in half, put egg potato scramble on top (omit meat), and finish with sausage gravy.
