Simmons’ Famous Fisherman’s Breakfast

Today we visited the Bahrain Fort and wore ourselves out.  When we got home, we wanted something warm and comforting for dinner.

I had 2 potatoes that seemed like they were about to go bad, so Keith suggested making the fisherman’s breakfast that he remembers his dad making for weekend breakfasts when he was growing up.

Here’s what I did:
I fried 4 pieces of bacon in a skillet, then once they were done I let them drain on a couple of paper towels. After they were “de-greased”, I chopped them up into small pieces.

Next, I diced up the potatoes and fried them in the bacon grease still in the skillet.  I “zapped” the potatoes in the microwave for a few minutes, so they’d fry up faster.  While they were frying in the skillet, I added a little herbs de Provence, onion powder, and pepper.

Once the potatoes were softened and sufficiently browned, I added 6 eggs that had been slightly beaten.  Scramble them around the potatoes with a spatula until they are cooked to your liking.

Next, add the bacon back to the skillet with the potatoes and eggs.  Mix it all up, then sprinkle some grated cheese over the top and remove the skillet from the heat.

Let the cheese melt, then serve up the fisherman’s breakfast in bowls.

Here are a few pictures from the Bahrain Fort from this afternoon.

    I am so glad Keith remembers this dish! His Dad was great at whipping this up, especially on cold Sundays mornings.

    There are many optional ingredients you can add if desired, including chopped onion, tomato, jalapenos, mushrooms, sausage, etc.

  4. This is right up Bryan’s alley! I’m definitely making this for him for breakfast this weekend! So easy and frying the potatoes in the bacon grease will make ’em extra tasty.

    Gorgeous photos of Bahrain!

  5. We tried Fisherman’s Breakfast this morning. It was a hit! Thanks!!
