Frugal Friday Breakfast Potatoes

We love breakfast in this house, well I love breakfast which means that by default my husband loves breakfast. This is a simple, really delicious, really frugal breakfast that has only a couple of ingredients but packs in a LOT of flavor. Add an egg over easy and you have a tasty filling breakfast, or even dinner!

Breakfast Potatoes with Turkey Bacon

2 - 3 russet potatoes, peeled and diced into small cubes
3 slices of thick cut Turkey Bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces (Trader Joe's has a wonderful one!)
1 small onion, diced
Old Bay Seasoning - I can't get enough of this stuff, I add it to potatoes, shrimp, garlic bread, pretty much anything!

Start by placing your potatoes in a microwave safe bowl, add 1 tablespoons of butter and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 5 minutes, when removing from the microwave be careful of the steam when taking off the plastic wrap.

While the potatoes are cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of butter with 1-2 tablespoons of oil. Add onions and diced bacon, stirring while they cook. Add a couple of dashes of Old Bay. Once the potatoes are done add them to the onion and bacon and sprinkle with more Old Bay. Cook about 5 minutes more until the potatoes are browned.

Serve warm with eggs. Delicious!
