Texas-Style Egg and Potato Skillet

Texas-Style Egg and Potato SkilletRecipe courtesy of the American Egg Board.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 thick slices turkey bacon (4 ounces), chopped
1 medium baking potato, diced (1/2-inch)
8 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup pico de gallo or chunky salsa
1/2 cup shredded smoked cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
6 (8-inch) flour or whole wheat tortillas, warmed (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cook bacon in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until edges begin to brown. Pour off drippings. Add potato; cook and stir until potato is tender and browned and bacon is crisp, 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Pour eggs over mixture in skillet. As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with an inverted turner, forming large soft curds. Continue cooking - pulling, lifting and folding eggs - until thickened and no visible liquid egg remains. Do not stir constantly.
  3. Stir in pico de gallo; heat through. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve with tortillas, if desired.

Makes 6 servings.
