What could be better than some slop for breakfast! What is slop you ask? When camping it is whatever you have available, and at home, it is whatever you want it to be! Here is the slop we had for breakfast this morning:

1/2 # Peppered bacon
1 large potato cut into very small cubes
1/4 cup chopped onion
8 eggs
Cheddar – enough for about one cup grated

Cut the bacon into half strips. Fry them up in a pan over medium to medium high heat. When browned remove to a pan layered with paper towel to drain. Let cool. Drain the pan but leave about 1 TBS bacon grease.

Cut up the potato and the onion. Re-heat the pan to heat up the bacon grease. Add the potatoes and onion.

Brown the potatoes and onion

Watch the potatoes and onions, and turn when needed so that they brown. While this is browning, break up the peppered bacon into small pieces. Grate the cheddar. When the potatoes look like they are browned enough to your liking, break the eggs into a bowl and whisk well, then add to pan.

Add the eggs

Stir to combine, then add the bacon and cheddar.

Add the cheddar and peppered bacon

Get your toast going now. Stir the slop in the pan until combined and well cooked. The toast should be ready about the same time!

Slop is served!

Pour a good size cup of tea or coffee, and a glass of orange juice and enjoy!
