A quick and easy breakfast for one or two people, this pie iron scramble is a real winner
- 2 handfuls Tater Tots
- 2 slices bacon
- 1 egg
- pepper, garlic
- three fingered pinch diced onion (optional)
- three fingered pinch diced sweet pepper (optional)
- ketchup ( optional)
Dice bacon and cook in pie iron.
When bacon is done, remove from pie iron and replace with Tater Tots smashed into the bottom half of the iron. If the iron isn’t sufficiently greased from the bacon, add a little butter. Drizzle with scrambled egg, using just enough to saturate the Taters. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon, onion, diced pepper and garlic and black pepper. No need for salt, the bacon and the Tater Tots have more than enough. Cover with more Tatetr Tots and a piece of bacon or a pat of butter and clamp the iron shut.
Cook over coals, flipping frequently and checking from time to time. When Tots are crisp and browned and the egg looks cooked you are ready to eat. Garnish with a squirt of ketchup, if you like.
